Quirky flavours ice cream

I love this place because you can always find flavours which aren't necessarily popular - the only thing missing is grapefruit sorbet!

Very nice ice cream parlour. Always packed during the day and open late at night. A great way to finish an evening.

I suspect any popularity is due to the wide choice of ice cream options & not the crepes.An average size of pancake with a spread of Nutella or other choices drizzled with a tasteless syrup does not for us reflect good value at £3;95 cramped into a corner of the shop.We could not tell the difference betwee n maple syrup...

Living in Bath, there are not many desert places to eat.. However given the choice I would not return to this establishment. Consistently the staff are rude and inattentive. I would place my order and 10 minutes later nothing would have appeared, I then approached a staff member and was rudely informed that my crepe had been forgotten (whilst my... More

Honestly, one of the best ice-creams I have ever had. It was so delicious that I delayed my trip the next day just to go to downtown and have a lemon again. If I ever come back to Bath, I would definitively go back there

Great ever-changing selection of delicious ice creams with different bestsellers showcased daily and staffed by italians. A single-scoop cone is the perfect treat to savour while you are walking out and about town. Open extra hours in summer with lines often spilling out into the street which is excellent business sense!

I had a pancake with my favorite topping.....Nutella. One just wasn't enough. Open late too which was very handy if you fancy something sweet.
