We only had single scoops but they were very nice. Vanilla, toffee and jaffacake - yes jaffacake! All very tasty. Worth a visit.

The choice of ice creams is amazing from prosecco to bubblegum and good value for money. It's worth queuing for an ice cream. We had coconut, mango, one that tasted like a fruit loaf and the prosecco, not all at the same time, it was on 2 visits. Very refreshing on a sunny day.

We visited after visiting the castle. I had Jaffa Cake Ice Cream which was interesting and so delicious as well as reasonably priced. There is a small amount of seating and they obviously get very busy. Would recommend.

Popped into this ice cream parlour when visiting Caernarfon castle. On the plus side the ice cream was delicious with generous servings for a very reasonable price, however on our initial visit we were a little disappointed as the flavours listed outside are not all available. This is owing to the small size of the establishment and flavours are available... More

Enjoyed lovely homemade jaffa cake, American cheesecake, Strawberry and chocolate ice cream, reasonably priced on a windy day out in Canaerfon. Loads of other unusual flavours like Haribo, Smarties & Ferrero Roche available!

We discovered this gem on our last trip to North Wales and just had to return when we were back in the area. Very popular, just opposite the castle with a good selection of home made ice cream. We all had cherry which was so flavoursome and absolutely delicious. Staff pleasant and efficient. Recommended.

Popped into this small ice-cream parlour after visiting the castle. Was soon distracted by the waffles and pancakes available! Had mint-choc and rum-and-raisin. Yum!

Managed to grab a seat in here on a busy afternoon. Had a lovely plain vanilla ice cream and a strawberry shake. You can tell the ice cream is home made. very busy and tons of choices for flavours. Not badly priced either!!

Very tasty ice-cream and some interesting flavours on offer. Good portions and reasonably priced too. We visited last year and couldn't resist visiting again this month on our annual camping trip to Wales.
