I cant' really say the expectation of "fine" foods was met with this diner. Basic food, consisting of cold dishes/sandwiches and a nice selection of gelati and some "gourmet" food for sale on display. Beyond this, the food was neither "fine" or exceptional and could be found at a lunch bar. The service was concentrated around the counter and most... More

A good range of flavours, from the basics (chocolate, pistachio) through to the specialities (Cherry Ripe, Christmas cake). Generous servings in comparison with other providers in the region.

Colin James has the best award winning ice cream and gelato around the area. All is locally made and plenty of variety for all tastes. The cheeses are from all around the world as well as local and the staff are all ready to serve, whether just for coffee and cakes to a meal for any time of the day

I am fortunate to live near this shop so have great access to this superlative ice cream. I'd prefer the service to be a bit better...a little surly at times. Central location, easy to find.
