Opened in Cascais in 1977 by his parents and uncle, owner Carlos took over operation of Tchipepa in 2014. Tchipepa, meaning  “delicious” ice cream, is a go-to spot in city center for gelado and other special treats. Located next to Burger King (Rua Visconde Luz 17A) Tchipepa offers up to 18 different gelado flavors each day including customer favorites such as chocolate, carmelized cookie, mango and Tchipepa- milk with bits of chocolate. The dark chocolate flavor is especially sinful!


All the gelados are made with natural ingredients and no artificial flavors. Carlos has developed about 100 recipes and when asked what his favorite flavor is, he replied:  “All of them!”


Tchipepa also has a variety of fancier treats such as the “Cascais Sundae" with four scoops of gelado, a peach slice and whipped cream. Scoops of gelado wrapped in a crepe or on a waffle are also delicious ways to enjoy gelado. During the colder months, a cup of Tchipepa’s rich and creamy hot chocolate is a great way to chase the chill away. 


One of Carlos’ favorite things about Cascais, besides gelado, is the weather!  Stop by and enjoy a scoop or two (or three) in a cone or a cup, take away a container for later, indulge in a sundae or just have a cup of coffee and people-watch from the outside tables or upstairs seating area.  Free WiFi is also available. Lastly, since the holidays are just around the corner, you can order a gelado cake for the festive season.
