Fulfilling Ice Cream

Over the past few years, I've always stopped by Buddy's for a quick bit of ice cream. Their ice cream is pretty creamy and gets the job done.

This was my first visit to the new Buddys Icecream and it did not disappoint. The service, free wifi, the tasty food, the friendly staff and the location have certainly cemented Buddys as the place to go for a 'taste of home'. The local cuisine is also delectable and as always, the owners are happy to offer great info, maps... More

We visited after rave reviews to go for ice cream after dinner. Sadly each item we wanted to order was sold out and there was only limited flavours left. We preserved but we were given distinctly average scoops of ice cream, the music was loud and techno and the service and staff were not very attentive which was a shame

Food was good and beer a great price, staff were very friendly . Clean and plenty of places to sit, inside and out. A great place if you don't want to pay resort prices for your meals.

The location is ideal, staff polite and the icecream wonderfull. I tried Buddy's Addiction combo and it got me just perfectly. Nice combination with peanuts and choco topping. Lovely place to spend some time chilling out.
