Icecream parlour: Eiscafe Gekko

Score: 10/10

Summer has officially arrived, although in reality, it feels more like Autumn.

When the sun does shine though, you should have a look at St.Gallen’s best kept secret: Eiscafe Gekko.


This little treasure serves the most amazing homemade icecreams and sorbets in Eastern Switzerland. Some of the sorbets are even dairy-free for those of you with allergies, but be sure to check with them before you order. The Eiscafe is only open 6 months of the year hidden away at the top of Engelgasse opposite Samosa.

The only issue is that there is limited place and no sunshine here to sit and enjoy your icecream. So be prepared to buy and walk…
