With its unique ambiance, wild interior and great choices of ice cream, Hot Spot is one of the best ice cream parlors in the city. The ice cream always tastes great and their other dessert treats that are combined with ice cream are absolutely delicious. Having one warm chocolate brownie with a scoop of vanilla super fudge ice cream will leave you wanting more!

Movenpick has always lived up to its reputation of providing the best quality ice cream. The taste is brilliant and their mint chocolate chip ice cream is one of the best flavors on their menu. Although it may be slightly pricey, the Swiss-based franchise is one of the best places to enjoy a cone from and will not disappoint.

One of the oldest ice cream stores in the city, Iceberg has not lost its step in all its years of service. Not only do their unique flavors like Sicilian always meet high standards but their Crunch Kulfi is to die for!

McDonalds may provide a nice, swirly vanilla cone but it pales in comparison to the swirly ice cream cones provided by Kaybees. Not only does their soft serve taste heavenly but the ability to customize how much of each flavor one would like in their serving seals the deal in bringing in customers looking for something different. This makes Kaybees one of the providers of the best ice cream in Karachi.

Lush Crush’s Ice Pops brought a storm in Karachi when it opened and I waited in LONG lines just to get my hands on the creamy Ice Pops which are Hea-ven-ly. The first flavor I tried one humid day was the Nutella Fudge. Surprisingly, it turned out to be a Nutella-filled food that I actually liked because everything nowadays has Nutella stuffed into it which gets a little boring after a while. This, however, tasted super creamy and chocolaty. There was not an overpowering flavor of Nutella in it which is why I ended up having 2 for Rs.180. This is a pretty reasonable sweet treat to have when the heat is bringing you down making it a top pick for best ice cream in Karachi.
