IJssie voor mn Meissie

IJssie voor mn Meissie is a dream of Groningen sobriety and Amsterdam folly, with nostalgia, honesty, family friendly, fantasy and magic. The cart is a journey through the four seasons in which you discover something new every time. Buying an ice cream at the cart is an experience for young and old. At the first sound of the bell you get hungry for a ‘ijssie’ (ice cream).
