STAFF TRAINING definitely needed here. This is a pity as the ice cream is delicious, if a bit expensive and the cakes look good. I looked down the reviews to see if I was the only person who had this saddening experience and found this review already here. "I've read on Echo and heard from my friends that Giggis has... More

I visited Giggis specifically as I had heard that they offered vegan ice cream, which is not something that is easy to find! There were 4-flavours of vegan ice cream available, as well as some sugar free and gluten free options. I opted for a chocolate ice cream and it was heavenly. I would highly recommend a visit to Giggis... More

Lovely place and friendly staff. Their Pistachio ice cream is delicious!!! Milkshakes are a bit pricey, but super flavoursome and creamy. Hidden away, quiet and plenty of tables and chairs available. Overall a nice place to sit down and enjoy a treat or a coffee.

A must-try for lovely ice cream, hidden away in Bournemouth. Great choice, including sugar-free and vegan. Friendly atmosphere and staff also.

yep its true love - my fave ice cream in the UK. Giggi is THE biz. The best tasting ice cream for sure. I believe it is homemade on the premises, genuine Italian like my mamma. I love it and all the other delicious foods, cakes and snacks there too. Luxury affordable lifestyle.

I walked quite a way to get here and was hoping they had some of the flavours shown on the internet which they did not - the choice was a bit restrictive. We went for a few flavours, including a sorbet, a vegan and a couple of other flavours. The prices were ok but the ice cream was only good... More

We visited just before lunch time on a Sunday, food was amazing, staff nice and cafe nicely decorated, clean and tidy. Brilliant selection of ice creams. My only complaint would be that the waffle I ordered was advertised as with cherries on but only had three which I thought was a little stingy. Otherwise though really pleased we visited and...

We went on a busy bank holiday. They had lots of staff on so no queues. The servings are generous, one scoop is enough for me. The chocolate ice cream is the best ever, the coffee one is great too. A definite treat.
