Much anticipated visit for waffles. We ordered strawberry and cream waffles at £4.50 each. When it arrived we were very surprised at the portion size. The 2 quarter pieces of waffle, decorated with no more than 2 strawberries thinly sliced alongside a good sized portion of cream were delicious. However it looked as if one portion had been divided between... More

Came here with some friends and our children after a lovely walk. I'd never been before, although we are local but my friend recommended it over other places in Llandudno! What a treat... queue was big when we walked in and scanned room for table which seemed like we'd have to wait long , however this was not the case!... More

A brilliant ice cream parlour. A delicious range of ice cream, including some unusual flavours. We all had the sundaes; they were amazing & great sized portions. Definitely the best place for ice cream in Llandudno.

Visited on Saturday after hearing great things about this place. We had intended to try the crepes and ice cream sundaes but there was no where to sit. Quite frustrating when people vacated a table, someone behind you in the queue would quickly 'reserve it'. Also lots of people eating ice cream cones at tables?! As a result we settled... More

This place is fantastic. You can either sit in or take away. The ice cream selection is out of this world. The man served us was really helpful even offering samples to make sure we got the right taste. You really must try this place.

Clean, friendly, very large choice of flavours. Very generous portions. Will go back time and time again with my grandchildren. They are icecream connoisseurs and said they were the best they had tasted.

The Looking Glass is a beautifully presented ice cream parlour with Alice in Wonderland decor, a nod to Lewis Carroll's links to Llandudno. The staff were very patient, as being a first time customer, it takes a while to decide you want - there is a huge array on offer! I opted for the crepe with banana and nutella, Ferrero... More

What's a holiday without an ice cream, and when you find somewhere like this with a really nice themed interior and really interesting selection it doesn't get better than this, and in a waffle cone!!! Staff were really nice and talked us around the flavour options, and we bought for 5 people and we all really enjoyed our choices and... More

Lovely ice cream well served by a young man who is a bit of a salesman. He could sell more if he wasn't so shy!
