You can grab a delicious ice cream from Ground's Cafe in the Abbey Gardens

Gelato is softer, lower in fat & more intensely flavoured than regular ice cream, this is because gelato uses less cream and is churned at a much slower speed which introduces less air into the product giving it a dense, rich consistency. Gelato is best served at a slightly higher temperature than ice cream which ensures that is it perfectly soft when eaten.

Grounda Cafe gelato is made at their company kitchen on the outskirts of Cambridge, the machines that slowly churn the gelato to ensure a perfectly soft consistently are powered by the sun from the solar panels on their roof. All of the milk and cream used to make the Gelato are sourced from local businesses.

There are many delicious flavours to choose from like bubblegum, chocolate, vanilla, very berry, strawberry, mint choc chip, and salted caramel and many more.
