Great quality and service

Always a tough choice of where to get ice cream in Musselburgh, and my preference is di Rollo. Big fan of the sorbets as well as ice cream. Staff are always friendly and helpful.

good selection of quality creamy ice-cream, yummy the ice-cream and sorbets quaint little shop that also has a selection of chocolates (Not made on the premises) not sure of the origin so I have not been tempted to purchase them. Not had a tea or coffee in the shop but the aroma of the coffee smells good.

They're ice cream is still lovely, but does not compare to S.Luca which is just a 5 minute walk across the bridge and along the High Street. Personal taste of course, but Elena DiRollo's is still a lovely ice cream shop, and the service is always very friendly.

The best for flavoured ice cream in town. While another company is best for Vanilla ice cream, DiRollo is best for flavoured ice cream. If you want to try something different get the Turkish Delight flavoured ice cream its amazing

Don't believe what you read about "the other place". This is the best ice cream in Musselburgh by far. Expect to wait a while if you arrive on a hot summers day, but it's well worth the wait for the delights of peaches and cream, amongst a plethora of fabulous flavours.

Knowing that DiRollo’s has been there since I lived in Edinburgh as a youth and probably before, my wife and I went in for a coffee when travelling up to Fife from Yorkshire. The seating area wasn’t big but adequate and you really felt you were in a shop, not a café. The young lady who served us was very... More

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.

There are two ice cream parlours at opposite ends of Musselburgh, I preferred this one. Not that the other one was poor, in fact the opposite, the other one was very good. However, this ice cream shop is like a throwback to the 50's. it is old, traditional, and family owned. The other shop is more commercial. I went to... More
