Fantastic choice of ice creams, great service and interesting decor. Has now become a must visit place every time we go up to Scarborough.

We had two waffles, ice cream and sauce and a banana split £14.90 inc VAT. Years ago the quality was very high but not now. Nice staff and clean but have lost their way re pricing

The largest icecream cone I have ever eaten in my life. I love icecream, but it was absolutely huge and I remain undefeated :) No, I was not sick and no I didn't get a belly ache. It's called 'The Mega' and it lived up...More
