Although the long days of summer are beginning to come to an end, don’t pull out that coat just yet. We all know the heat can return at any moment, so there’s still time for a cold, sweet treat. Over on the east side of El Retiro you can find one of the best ice cream shops in Madrid. At Narvaez 62, Helados Sienna is perfectly situated for making a quick pit stop before a stroll through the park just two blocks away (there’s a second location near Parque Fuente del Berro at Sancho Dávila, 29). With more than 30 flavors you are certain to find the perfect combination, such as strawberry cheesecake and pitufo (smurf) or, my favorite, dulce de leche and coco. Don’t happen over to this neighborhood much? At just 2.20€ for a small, two-scoop cup you can even afford to make a special trip just for the ice cream!
