It's a nice shop in a busy area, so it tends to get crowded periodically. They sell fudge, chocolate dips and ice cream - we counted 40 varieties. They sell hot and cold coffee drinks, too.

The ice-cream was good but can't say it was the best I've ever tried. Coupled with the price tag, this is definitely a "tourist gig", I won't come back often.

They have 3 little tables in the middle of the shop plus a couple of benches outside in case you feel compelled to sit down for the ice cream.

Kilwin's makes some very delicious treats. During our trip we made a few different stops. The first time I ordered a malt and the second a double scoop of ice cream. The malt took a very long time for them to make but was worth the wait. The ice cream was much quicker and was just as good.

We have visited Kilwin's for years and have enjoyed it. Their ice cream is good and they also have good fudge and other candy. However, this year, the staff seems less friendly. It's always very busy. It's gotten expensive and they don't post prices for ice cream treats. My husband asked where are your prices posted and was referred to the Manager who seemed not very pleased to have to address the question. You won't know what somethings costs unless you ask or when you're ready to pay. Also, their gift card machine wasn't working so we were unable to pay using our gift card. There are other ice cream shops in the Circle that are also good and they post their prices - at least they're up front with the customer which is appreciated.

We just wanted to take a load off our feet and we smelled this amazing aroma that lured us into Kilwin’s. The ice cream was sumptuous with many, many flavors. And the fudge all looked. Just go. And go hungry!

We have been going to Kilwin's for over 26 yrs and it has always been more expensive than its competitors but it has become very costly over the past couple of years.
one scoop of Ice cream in a waffle cone for a family of four is now costing $24????
Even though the cappuccino choc chip is delicious we have taken our patronage too Big Olaf's.
