Very good ice cream and sorbet. We all had a different flavour and everyone enjoyed their choice. I had the mango sorbet and it was excellent.

The ice cream is homemade and amazing, as our the waffle cones! A must try! Definitely the best ice cream we have had.

We go to Fred's a lot. MrGeorge has a bit of a 'thing' for their ice cream. I like some of them too - but not as much as he does... Right now, I miss some of the old flavours that don't seem to get...made any more (especially the fruit ones, and double especially the pear). What I miss even more is having just a couple of tables to sit at and eat at - you can just about walk around with a cone or cup, but waffles just don't work. They have plenty of tables at their other property just yards away, so I suspect it's less about any restrictions than about avoiding having to keep them clean. Which is a shame.More

When visiting St John's we strolled through Redcliffe quay and stopped for waffles at Fred's. They were great value and very filling - the ladies working were very helpful and answered a few questions about st John's for us.

Fred's is a cozy ice-cream place with a variety of scrumptious flavours. I tried the almond-hazelnut on a sugar cone and it is to die for. It is rich, creamy and full of bold flavour and nuttiness. Too bad I have dietary restrictions, else I'd...have had this everydayMore

We asked our taxi driver where to get some delicious gelato and he brought us here and I’m so glad he did. I had the chocolate and pistachio in a delicious waffle cone and it was amazing. We are staying at a resort on the...island and I wish they served it there. I highly recommend dropping by and have a treat.More

What more can be said? Fred's has wonderful ice cream and a selection of somewhat unusual flavors. Definitely the place to go for a wonderful dessert! Very reasonably priced too.

Visited after lunch at nearby C&C wine for an ice cream to cool off. I've been coming here for years and the ice creams are always superb. There is a nice seating area at the front. They also do coffee and soft drinks.

Stumbled here with a friend and we both had waffles with ice cream. It was pretty amazing. We tried the white chocolate flavour, and the marshmallow flavour. The consistency of the ice cream was so creamy and rich, and the waffles were perfect.

I have been to this ice cream stand in downtown St John’s every year they have been open. I have a small cone when I get to town and another when I leave! Love the consistency and flavors. The price has held steady at US...$3.00.More

Fred's is located in the Heritage Cay area of St John's. It's next to Cuties Restaurant and several small shops. If you like really good ice cream - don't hesitate to enjoy a frozen delight at Fred's. They have many, many flavors to choose from...and each one is very tasty. If you need to wait in line to be served, I think that you'll find that it's worth the wait. Ask for directions if you need to. I don't think that you'll be disappointed.More

No - and the people there are not very friendly. There are a few tables in a open venue. The icecream is not great and it is very very soft - maybe a problem with their freezers? And..... they don't understand exchange... More
