Gelatos and Ice cream never gets old in a city like Lagos! So whether, it’s to beat the heat or just an outright surrender to your sugar craving, you can find some amazing spots to satisfy you in Lagos.
Quick knowledge byte! Gelato is different from Ice Cream, it is basically ice cream but with less cream and eggs and sometimes no eggs at all! So technically, it is a little healthier than traditional ice cream so you can feel a little better about eating it ;-).
Here are our top picks on where to find the best Gelatos and Ice cream in Lagos 🙂
Cold stone serves extra creamy Ice creams, some of the finest of them. They showcase a large variety of mix-ins all combined to create your own special ice cream experience. The Mud Pie Mojo is one of the many signature creations they offer, with the perfect combination of Coffee Ice Cream with OREO Cookies, Peanut Butter, Roasted Almonds and more! And just so you are extra satisfied, Domino’s Pizza is always conjoined to Cold Stone Creamery, so why not grab a pizza as well when you stop by.
