Not friendly, not helpful and as a Bath resident and very regular customer, I (fortunately) only go for the ice cream ...! Just catering for the tourists

My wife bought this surprise off of Groupon, 2 crepes or waffles with up to 3 toppings,and 2 drinks. When we walked in my eyes lit up looking at the choice of ice cream. We both had a crepe with three toppings, I also had a milkshake, brilliant. Really sharp lemon taste. Wonderful. Cant wait to go again.

We took the kids for double chocolate ice cream and Belgian waffles. Both well down very well. Prices for the waffles are a little steep but the ice cream is good value, especially considering the central tourist location

Pistachio is a favourite flavour of this ice cream. We usually have a big cone and sit in the square , if there,s space. If it's sunny and hot, you ,ll need to hurry and eat it ,or it will drip everywhere. It melts by fast indeed.

We went after reading about it on tripadvisor and went after dinner to miss the queues. Creme caramel and honeycomb ice cream were really creamy and filling. £1.95 a scoop but one scoop was enough!

The Crepes didn't taste right and the ice cream was really bland. Staff were rude especially the lady making the crepes. I will never eat in there again and I advise you to do the same!

New flavours everyday! Whethere you remain classic, ie. Chocolate, vanilla, or go extreme with coffee, bubblegum, Trifle or marbling, you won't be dissapointed. Extremely generous portions, even for the smallest cone or tub! Great Value for money! Can even try several flavours if the choice is too hard! Perfect end to youe evening and 100% always service with a smile.

We went after going to the real Italian pizza co which is next door. The staff are very friendly and service is quick. I didn't have to que very long at all even though it was busy. There wasn't much choice because it was near the end of the day but that's fine because it was great. They do milkshakes... More
