Expert review of Bruin

Artisanal ice cream in a mindboggling variety of flavours.

Bruin has been serving delicious ice cream to Madrilenians for nearly 50 years. I recommend sitting on the terrace so you can give your ice cream the attention it deserves, rather than wandering off down the street.

Food and drink: 

They do more than 70 flavours all together, but usually only offer 30 or so at any given time.These might include blue cheese, liquorice, violet, cider, olive oil or Baileys. You'll be relieved to know they also do chocolate, nougat, strawberry and mango. I recommend also having an horchata (tiger nuts blended with lots of crushed ice and sugar) or a granizado de limon (lemon juice with crushed ice and sugar).

Ambience: 

Bruin gets rather busy on a summer's afternoon or evening, but it's worth queuing.

Service: 

They're going as fast they can! Be patient.

Location: 

Near the Oeste park and the Debod Temple. Handy if you're getting the Teleferico cable car.

Price advice: 

Ice creams are around 2.50-4 euros. Not cheap, but it is all natural etc. That's what I tell myself anyway.
