5 Best Ice Cream Shops in Bangkok
The capital’s absolute best ice cream shops, listed below.
Situated at the Bangkok Art and Culture Centre, IceDEA is well-known for its unconventional creations. At this shop, ice cream is treated as a work of art. They love to pour creativity into every ice cream they offer, whether it’s through the flavour, presentation, or both. The unique flavours are enough to make people stop by, such as wasabi ice cream, cigarette ice cream, steak ice cream, and 17 more flavours. Durian ice cream is one of their signatures, which is shaped like an actual durian fruit with spiky green rinds. Even some durian haters love IceDEA’s durian ice cream because it has only a mild smell and sweet taste. Besides ice cream, you should also try their mangosteen, corn, and mango sticky rice.
Opening hours: Open from Tuesday to Sunday from 11:00 AM to 6:00 PM. Closed on Monday.
Address: Bangkok Art and Culture Centre, 939 Rama I Rd, Rong Muang, Pathum Wan District, Bangkok 10330.
Farm to Table
Farm to Table Organic Cafe serves their menu from the farm directly onto your table, as the name suggests. They grow their own vegetables out in Phu Chee Fah and make creamy ice cream from their own produce – potato, pumpkin, strawberries, and carrot – certified by IFOAM (International Foundation for Organic Agriculture). This essentially means that the ice cream has no artificial ingredients. Hence, every bite of it offers a close touch to nature. The flavours of the ice cream consist of black sesame, passion fruit, pumpkin, and many more. However, if you prefer simple ice cream flavours, you can choose conventional flavours like strawberry, dark chocolate, and cookies and cream. For vegans, the soy milk ice cream is delicious. Although ice cream is the cafe’s speciality, they also offer other unique options, such as salads, pork rib over organic rice, and spinach sandwiches.
Opening hours: Open from 9:00 AM to 7:00 PM. Closed on Wednesday.
Address: 179 Thanon Atsadang, Wang Burapha Phirom, Phra Nakhon, Bangkok 10200.
Azabu Sabo serves tasty ice creams of traditional Japanese flavours with modern appeal. Their traditional flavours will give you a first glance at the culinary culture in Hokkaido, such as Matcha, Hojicha, Black Sesame, Hokkaido Cream, Orange Yoghurt, and many more. Aside from the flavours, the strange but captivating presentation of the ice cream also stands out. They serve their ice cream in a triangular cone, something that you may not find in other ice cream shops in Bangkok. Make sure to try their cult-favourite, Milk ice cream and their renowned Mint Chocolate ice cream.
Opening hours: Open daily from 10:00 AM to 10:00 PM.

This trendy ice cream shop has quickly garnered a loyal following among locals and tourists alike, thanks to its unique and delectable frozen treats. What sets Creamery Boutique Ice Cream apart from other shops is its innovative approach to crafting ice cream. Their signature dessert is the lava cookie, featuring a warm, gooey cookie topped with a scoop of your favorite ice cream flavor. As you dig in, the cookie’s molten center oozes out, creating a delightful contrast between the hot cookie and the cold ice cream. Apart from their famous lava cookie, Creamery Boutique Ice Cream also offers a selection of delicious sundaes, milkshakes, and ice cream sandwiches.

This creamy treat boasts a luscious texture, infused with the rich, natural sweetness of coconut milk. Classic favorites like chocolate, vanilla, and strawberry are sure to please, while more adventurous palates might opt for unique Thai-inspired flavors such as mango, durian, or Thai tea.
