Part of the super healthy, super delicious Tamara group of frozen yogurt shops and fruit juice stands. This Ben Yehuda frozen yogurt shop is a Tel Aviv institution, serving heavenly frozen yogurt with oozings of sauces and toppings – I like chocolate with chocolate, but they have great fruit options also. They even have swings inside the shop to bring back you back to your childhood. Read more

Vaniglia – Fan Favorite

Yermiyahu 23 and Eshtori Ha-Parkhi 22


Vaniglia has quite a few branches in Tel Aviv to choose from, and is definitely one of the best ice cream places. They have as many as 45 flavours to indulge yourself, my favourites are chocolate orange and vanilla ginger. Read more

My secret pleasure in Sarona Food Market, and one of the best ice creams in Tel Aviv. The shop has a unique vintage-looking fully-fuctioning ice cream making machine on the wall, and their ice cream is delish! They also serve vegan ice cream, frozen yogurt and several ice cream deserts! Worth saving a bit of space for when in having a meal in Sarona. Read more

Iceberg – All Natural

Ibn Gabirol 24 and Rothschild 31


Iceberg has branches all across Tel Aviv, and also a few outside Tel Aviv. They are one of the oldest ice cream chains in the country, and make ‘100% low tech Ice Cream’, using only natural and raw locally sourced ingredients. They have a great selection of flavors, and I like to try something new every time I go. I recommend black forest (cherry and chocolate ) and salty caramel with caramel bites inside! Read more
