Best Ice Cream & Gelato Shops in Grand Cayman

"The pie bigger, the ice cream richer..." - Cayman's Dessert Culture

Whether it's your favourite way to end a meal or you want to head straight for the finale, Cayman's restaurants are big hitters when it comes to desserts! Read on to find out the best places to satisfy your sweet tooth.

Keep Your Eyes on the Pies!
Calypso Grill is famous for their Sticky Toffee Pudding and Millionaire Shortbread. For delicious desserts to be enjoyed alfresco whilst overlooking the water, head to Casanovas to tuck into their divine Tiramisu, Grand Old House for their Red Velvet Chocolate Lava Cake and Beach House for their White Chocolate Matcha Panna Cotta or heavenly Bananas Foster French Toast. Sunday brunches are also a mecca for dessert lovers and both Seven and LUCA are known for their rows of mini-cakes, tartlets, profiteroles and much more.

The Great Gelato
This trendy Italian treat is a great alternative to ice cream. It's made from milk and all natural ingredients with less calories and fat than ice cream. Gelato is churned at a slow speed so there is less air, giving it a creamy, dense consistency. Gelato & Co.'s owners make their gelato fresh everyday with no added colouring, flavourings or preservatives. Choose from over 26 different delicious flavours and top your treat with melted Nutella, strawberry sauce or chocolate beads. Enjoy your gelato while sitting at one of the outside tables that overlook the harbour in Camana Bay or at their George Town location. Gelato & Co. also offer a wide range of cakes, macarons, pastries and more.

The Inside Scoop
After a prolonged period in the Cayman sun you’ll find yourself searching for a cold scoop of ice cream. Häagen-Dazs serves sophisticated ice cream using only the purest ingredients and offers a multitude of extra toppings. For a huge range of soft-serve flavours you won't go wrong at Dairy Queen. Sample the ever popular Blizzards with seasonal variations and delicious ice cream cakes. Also listen out for the sweet sounds of the CayKool ice cream truck as it makes its way around the Island!

Sundae School
For a lighter treat that’s lower in calories head to Peachwave for frozen yoghurt, aka ‘froyo’. Help yourself to a variety of frequently changing flavours such as tart lemon, creamy cheesecake, reduced sugar English toffee and even non-dairy options. Loading up on the toppings will of course hike up the calories, but they are totally worth it! Yogurt Ur Way in Grand Harbour also offers a selection of flavours and toppings that change daily.

Adventures in Smoothieland
Stop by Jessie’s Juice or sister café South West Collective for thick smoothies made using fresh produce, with no ice or sugar added. Their Dr. Green provides a punch of vegetable goodness or for a sweeter treat try the Carmen Miranda! Island Naturals also have a strong smoothie game with their rich 'to die for' Breakfast Smoothie, or their more saintly Green Smoothie filled with kale, spinach, banana and green supreme juice! For some nutty indulgence try Fresh for their Aw Nuts Smoothie, a satisfying blend of bananas, almonds, walnuts and milk. For cool, thick and creamy smoothies head to Smoothie King, where they offer enhanced smoothies with multi-vitamins, antioxidants, muscle builders and more. Lastly, you can try Juiced @ The Wicket for their wonderful juices.

Madame Bakery
For a guilt-free treat head to Island Naturals, Conscious Cafe or Bread & Chocolate where you will find gluten and dairy-free options that are guaranteed to satisfy any sweet craving!

A Tale of Two Crepes
Crêpes are some of the most delicious desserts you can eat and will satisfy both the sweet and savoury tooth types! Anchor & Den’s crêpe bar is open daily (7am–11am and 6pm–10pm) and offers flavours such as lemon curd, blueberry and hibiscus, or scrambled egg, ham and cheese. Petit Paris offers delectable French crêpes daily, where you can enjoy sweet flavours ranging from Sugar Crêpe, to the more decadent Apple Cinnamon Crêpe, or Nutella Banana Crêpe.
