I have been a regular customer at Aunty Betty's for many years. Today on Sunday 18/12/16. I entered Aunty Betty's. Sadly, even though the shop was empty, the staff failed to acknowledge that I was even in there. All I received were stares from unenthusiastic members of staff. The ice cream in the the shop is lovely. However, considering the... More

Lovely little confectionary shop filled with some old classic sweets mixed in with the new. Coffee is super nice. I normally just get a plain latte but today I ventured out and had the gingerbread. A tasty xmas treat that was accompanied by a free mini gingerbread man placed on the lid. My only criticism is that the staff could... More

No visit to Stonehaven can be complete without a visit to this ice cream parlour. The ice cream with extras includes almost every sweet yo can think of. In fact it is sheer indulgence and not for the calorie conscious. There is also a splendid selection of sweets of all types and some of them I have not seen since... More

For any tourists, a bit of semi-local info: if a photo of an ice-cream for Aunty Bettys appears on social media, everyone knows where it came from. They're famous for their super-generous portions and adventurous flavours (including isn bru). All the toppings are free, the quality is brilliant, and even if you don't like ice cream there's loads of different... More

Great ice cream parlour on the sea front, plenty of flavours to choose from and lots of toppings to pick through. Great way to finish off a day at seaside took me back about 35 years.

This place must be the most popular place in the north east for ice cream. Incredibly busy throughout the summer and any time there is a nice day. If you're queued just inside the door, I find it doesn't take too long to get served. The ice cream is fantastic and there's plenty of choice. Irn Bru and Tablet are... More
