Popped in here for an ice cream and walked out with more than that. Ice cream was excellent, but what really caught my eye was the ice creams for dogs in doggy flavours. This is such a cool idea, besides cooling down us humans on a hot day with an ice cream they also will cool down your dog. This... More

This is the best ice cream parlour I have been to! There arw so many choices of icecream. I was spoilt for choice. I had the honeycomb icecream in a sprinkles cone which was amazing yesterday and the lemon meringue icecream today. I'm still trying to decide what to have tomorrow! I would definitely recommend this place.

Went to the sweet shop with some friends while stopping off in Aberdovey. Great ice cream with generous helpings and great selection of flavours. Was with a friend who is celiac and she was chuffed to find they had proper ice cream cones that were gluten free and didn't taste like cardboard. Not as much lactose free ice cream, but... More

Stopped for an ice cream , the choice is amazing and they also have doggy ice cream too!! My daughter has allergies and the lady was so helpful. She made her a cone from the ice cream out the back so that it wasn't one which was next to the peanut ice cream, this is the first time my daughter... More

Saw lots of people in and out of here very quickly eating ice cream so decided to give it a try. Without doubt the best ice cream we have had in years. Almost too many flavours to choose from. Lots of staff so very quick service. Very good prices too

Wonderful ice creams and excellent, efficient service. Called at a busy time but queue was really quick. Ice creams served in Welsh cones with dragons on them. Excellent, original choice of sorbets and ice creams. Will definitely call again!

Every year we visit and every year we experience fantastic service. My little girl is dairy free & we always pop in for a sorbet as a holiday treat, the staff take her allergy her seriously - sterilising the scoop, getting the sorbet from the back so there is no cross contamination etc also they remembered us everyday. Such little... More

Description
At The Sweet Shop we make all our ice cream on site using fresh Welsh cream and milk. In the main season we offer over 20 flavours on a variety of Antonelli Brother cones in various sizes including gluten free ones! However we are not a restaurant, and are not sure how we came to be listed as such - we tried to get Trip Advisor to remove us because we do not want visitors to be disappointed when there are no tables and chairs but they wouldn't. The Sweet Shop is a cute but tiny shop specialising in take away ice cream, old fashioned sweets and chocolates!! We are also a seasonal shop and shut between October and March.What we lack in size we hopefully make up for in great, Welsh ice cream and we look forward to welcoming customers old and new!
