Fabio is a family favourite and his ice cream specials are sensational. Love bringing the kids there - it's very reasonably priced & great coffee too!

This little oasis in the middle of Sligo is the perfect retreat for the disinterested shopper! Great coffee, delicious artisan ice cream and window tables. Soothing jazz playing in the background and the world passing by outside......a little piece of utopia :) Only seats about 6 customers. Very exclusive!!!

Hands down the best take away coffee spot I've discovered being someone who lives off the stuff in work, met with conversation and jokes and a huge welcome from my first visit to my last. Superior service.

Yes, Fabio's fabulous gelato is that good. The person who compared this gelato with tesco's disgusting soft scoop frozen hydrogenated vegetable oil falsely labeled as 'ice cream' must have a palate of a donkey. There will always be customers for good stuff and there will always be braying donkeys complaining about everything. Keep it up Fabio!

My wife and I were advised to try the icecream here and it was really worth it. Nice tasty icecream. I tried the special one for this month, which was excellent. It is a bit price, but worth it.

Homemade and loads of variety. Well worth a visit for icecream lovers. Its more of a purchase and walk place with dew stools so not suitable if you have buggies and loads of shopping with you

Another example of the the prevailing Italian Sligo rip-off. Ridiculously overpriced average tasting ice cream.

Just the best ice-cream ever! So many different flavours to pick from makes choosing very difficult. They also do great sandwiches at lunchtime.
