The sandwich was gorgeous, good value and the mint chocolate chip/strawberry ice cream was to die for..... The coffee is also one of the best in Bournemouth. We are locals.

We have been a customer since you opened 5 years ago. Always considered your ice cream delicious the best in town. Sadly your portion size is now appalling. My granddaughter was treated to an ice cream on Monday 18th May. 2 scoops which was actually...2 half scoops. This is really very upsetting that you are prepared with give your loyal customers half measures. This is not the 1st time I have had to mention this to your staff. Please take on board my remarks.More

An friend advised me that Giggi was doing home delivery and the details were on their Facebook page. Ordered the ice cream by text in the morning and it was delivered by lunch time for no extra charge. Giggi is our favorite ice cream so...it was a nice treat to be able to order a large tub of four different flavors. Many Thanks Giggi for providing this service.More

Giggis ice cream is one of the best in Bournemouth. Unfortunately the woman serving it was one of the rudest person I have ever met in my life. Until the staff has changed or received an intensive training on how to deal with customers it...is not worth going there.More

What a great little cafe! We went for the gellato and waffles and although the waffle machine had broken, the sundaes did not disappoint. The smooth gelato was the best I've tasted outside of Italy with lovely crunchy caramel pieces hiding all through it. Husband...was taken with the Italian hot chocolate and the kids loved their sundaes too. The staff were friendly and helpful and now we've got an excuse to go back to try the waffles!More
