Ice creams to die for. Lovely staff and food. Don’t miss a treat. Outside tables to enjoy your iced and look at the castle. Walk along the quay to burn off the calories and then pop back to try another flavour.

This ice cream was definitely worth all the calories and sugar intake. Our waffle cones were filled to maximum with the best tasting ice creams ever. Flavours were really deep, and texture was creamy and rich. Well worth it, good value for money

This cafe is a very good place to meet up with friends and have a chat and a lovely ice cream. My favourite was the Jaffa cake ice cream. The staff here are very friendly and the atmosphere is great.

Delicious ice cream. As good as the sort you'd get in an Italian parlour, although some of the flavours are different - I bet the Italians don't have jaffa cake flavour (it is delicious)! Staff were lovely too, particular with our grumpy baby.

Excellent home made ice cream, but this cafe also does a good coffee and an excellent 'Welsh tea with bara brith, Welsh cakes etc. A lovely carrot cake gluten-free option. If you want sorbet (fruit ice) ask ...they often don't have room to display them.

Visited here with my Grand daughter. The service was fantastic as were the pancake and ice cream. Even provided me with a wet wipe to clean the little one up.

The place is extremely well positioned close to the fantastic castle and the town walls just off the main square. Very friendly staff and fantastic choice of great ice creams. Outside seating too when the weather allows. Not to be missed.

We popped in here for a late October ice-cream treat. We all had different flavours and cones and all thoroughly enjoyed them. The staff were helpful and offered “tasters” to my mum who couldn’t decide! We wandered along the costal/Castle path and enjoyed the late...More
