Description: At The Sweet Shop we make all our ice cream on site using fresh Welsh cream and milk. In the main season we offer over 20 flavours on a variety of Antonelli Brother cones in various sizes including gluten free ones! However we are not a restaurant, and are not sure how we came to be listed as such - we tried to get Trip Advisor to remove us because we do not want visitors to be disappointed when there are no tables and chairs but they wouldn't. The Sweet Shop is a cute but tiny shop specialising in take away ice cream, old fashioned sweets and chocolates!! We are also a seasonal shop and shut between October and March.What we lack in size we hopefully make up for in great, Welsh ice cream and we look forward to welcoming customers old and new!

That has now all changed as The Sweet Shop in Aberdovey now has the crown! Pity its such a long way from where we live, or... More

Well, having previously thought that the Ferrero Roche ice cream was the king of all things frozen and creamy, the Jaffa Cake ice cream from here has made me question this important life dilema. I am now in a quandry of epic proportions and will have to re-visit the sweet shop and make a second sitting of another (large) tub... More

WOW...this place is an absolute gem! If you find yourselves in Aberdovey please try and call in. It is the most delicious homemade ice cream and yogurt-based ice cream I have eaten to date! We enjoyed lots of different ones during our holiday in July, cherry, ginger biscuit (I think) honey and granola, rum and raisin...it would be quicker to... More

On a sunny day in Aberdovey, the queue at The Sweet Shop is out of the door and onto the pavement outside. Don't be put off, the yummy ice creams are well worth waiting for. An excellent range of flavours and always a couple of frozen yogurt choices too.

This shop has the best ice cream in Aberdovey and way beyond. It is super creamy and they make many different flavours. All the ice cream is home-made. When we visit Aberdovey, we simply have to have an ice cream from here. Love it.
