This is sooooo good. A fantastic range of ice creams. Also nice hot drinks in a pleasant environment. It was a lovely day when we were there so sat at the natty pavement tables (lovely designs). Staff friendly and welcoming and the ice cream is simply wonderful.

We spotted this cafe on the way to the Castle for a visit and commented on nice the icecreams looked as people emerged from the shop. On finishing our visit to the castle, I suggested that we tried some - despite the fact it was nearly closing time, they were still able to serve us some of the best icecream... More

Went here recently for an ice-cream and what a treat. They have loads of flavours available to choose from if you just fancy a cone or a tub. You get a good sized scoop each time so there is lots of ice-cream available. I had a Caernarfon Sundae with chocolate, vanilla and strawberry ice cream with cream and sauce -... More

Bought two New York Cheesecake ice creams, they were fantastic! We'll be back to sample other flavours when we are back in Wales.

We had the best ice cream that we have had in many a year here. I had ginger and elderberry, my daughter had a mix of New York Cheesecake and Banoffee and my wife flew solo on the New York Cheesecake. The prices were very good and the portions generous. Try one before (or after) visiting the castle.

This is fine as a little café - right by the Castle with a nice view of the castle, the harbour and the town centre. Even nicer is to sit outside after going around the castle and have one of their extensive range of ice creams.

If you're in Caernarfon on a hot day, go here for an ice cream. They had my unusual favourite of 'liquorice and blackcurrant' - but have a good varied choice, the quality and size too, just right. They're just off the Maes (Castle Square) at the top of Palace Street near the Castle so they have a good spot. Tables... More

delicious huge ice cream, how can you not be seduced by haribos, candy floss, New York cheese cake or ginger and elderflower flavours? Something for every member of the family?! Extremely helpful staff showed us all the packaging when dealing with severely egg allergic children and we all ate ices with no reactions. thank you for their attention...go on treat... More

After reading the reviews I have to say I was quite disappointed. Ice cream server was impatient and they brought my tea 3 times before it was the right one. Ice cream was very sweet, no match for the honey ice cream at Aberaeron. So won't be going back. Find somewhere else to get my ice creams in Caernarfon.
