It’s the last day of February, the sun is shining and Eissaison (ice cream season) is about to start. No, you’re not dreaming, this is real life. Hokey Pokey, one of the most popular and in my opinion one of best Eisläden (ice cream parlours) in Berlin reopens on 28 February for its 2015 run.
Hokey Pokey is so popular that last year the owners were ‘forced’ to raise their prices and hire extra staff to appease the neighbours who complained about the ‘noisy customers’ queuing and eating outside on the pavement.
Navigate your way through the crowds of people and strollers and you are greeted by a freezer choc-a-block full of delicious looking ice cream options. Choose your flavour, how many scoops you would like and whether you would like it in a cone or pot and prepare for ice cream induced ‘ooohs’, ‘aaahs’ and ‘mmms’.
The Belgian Chocolate ice cream at Hokey Pokey is the stuff of fantasies. Luxuriously rich ice cream with large chocolate pieces throughout that will have you craving more the moment you finish.
Hokey Pokey is open daily from 14:00 to 19:00 (check Facebook for current opening hours) at Stargarder Straße 73 (not far from S/U Schönhauser Allee) in Prenzlauer Berg – treat yourself to some of the best ice cream in Berlin.
