    You should have added Rajissimo (Amager and the iron, Kbh) to the list. It's really delicious ice cream!

    And then there is always good service and a nice smile on the lip

  3. Nørrekås Ishus, which started last year, should be included in the list, fantastic ice cream they have

  4. Where is the & #8220; Slotsisen & #8221; in Kolding, however, got rid of. Wonderful homemade waffles and amazing div. Mutual.
