Best ice cream in Musselburgh

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.

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.

A lovely family-run cafe which has good service. Ice-cream is great but I haven't sat in the cafe before.

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:)
