Elena DiRolla is situated opposite the Brunton Theatre in the heart of Musselburgh and is particularly well-known for its very popular ice cream which is available in several flavours. They also sell a variety of sweets and novelty gifts.

DiRollo's is a Musselburgh institution, and when you taste their ice-cream you will know why! This is the real thing, smooth and creamy, plus they have a huge range of flavours. definitely recommend.

I have always loved their ice-cream, lots of different flavours and god tub and cone sizes. I'v never been in the cafe but it is always busy so that tells you something. I highly recommend a visit.

I love Di Rollo's ice cream! The shop is friendly and welcoming and we never have the same flavour twice! Lovely choice of chocolates and gifts too, the kids love it:)
