We fancied an ice cream on a very hot day in York and came across La Cremeria. When we asked for 2 scoops of ice cream we were stunned when 2 enormous portions of lovely, creamy home made ice cream were served and at incredibly low prices. I even queried the bill as I thought we had been undercharged. The... More

I can't even remember how many times I have been to this beautiful window of wonder. I still know it as the Orange Window from when it was painted bright tangerine orange a few years ago. Cannot fault the recipes, choice or price. Just go and you will understand!

We popped in yesterday (dressed as pirates...long story) and it was literally the best ice cream I've had in years! Lovely staff too - we're putting a "thank you" to La Cermeria in our play's programme for being so lovely. Will definitely be back! (From the ginger pirate)

Located steps from York Minister we ate here every day of our stay. La Cremeria makes its "to die for" ice cream with FRESH ingredients every day and offers different flavors each day. Reasonably priced.

After having researched extensively, we concluded that this was the only affordable gluten free cream tea available in central York. There is only vague mention of gluten free options on a board outside and nothing in the menu or on a company website - it would be great if this place could make it better known and celebrate what it's...

I love Ice Cream, so I love La Cremeria. The owner makes the ice cream himself and likes to experiment with unusual flavours. Last time I tried the curried banana. Don't worry if you're not quite ready for something out of the ordinary they have regular flavours too. All are fantastic. The owner is so enthusiastic it's a joy to... More

Lovely coffee made the Italian way - and they generously let me off a bit of the bill when I realised one of my 'pound' coins was in fact a 20 centime piece! Thanks!
