Having eaten nearby, joined the queue for an ice cream. What a choice, something to suit everyone. You can have an scoop or two (or more) in a cone or bowl. Rose Hibiscus and lemon meringue was my choice. Generous portions and delicious. Friendly staff.

After dinner we tried the ice cream at Ernest's. A "simple" was very ample in size. A delicious way to end the evening.
