Cheery ice creams!

We enjoyed fabulous ice creams in this wonderfully cheerful cafe. I had vanilla, my husband had rhubarb and ginger. Both were delicious. It was very busy and lots of families were enjoying time together. Would certainly go again.

We stopped in after our visit to the castle and had an ice cream to walk back to the car with. The kids had a sprinkle cone with bubblegum ice cream. The portion was huge and so they were very pleased, as was I since my experience of small town ice cream parlours are high priced and not much to... More

What a wonderful little jewel of place in the heart of Caernarfon. It was a lovely sunny spring morning today and before meeting with our mortgage adviser we decided to stop somewhere for a cuppa and Palas drew is in because of its vibrant happy colour scheme. Nestling by the magnificent castle this little treasure of a place will be... More

After reading all of the reviews I was really really excited to try the ice cream here. We got inside to find a tiny little cafe that in my personal opinion looked like the decorationg had been rushed and just chucked together. I suppose some would call it cosy but I just felt very much like I was hemmed in,... More

Fantastic choice of home made ice creams with lots of cone options. We all found them delicious. In addition, having left a bag behind, staff kindly offered to wrap it up and send it on immediately. What amazing service. Thank you!!

Situated right outside the Castle so perfect for popping in for a well earned treat after walking up and down all those turrets. Great selection of ice creams.

After promising the kids an ice cream we definitely chose the best place to go. I had mango passion fruit it was out of this world. The kids had cherry coke and cookies and cream which I had to taste of course!!! Will be popping in here every time we come to Caernarfon. Da iawn! 🍦😊
