The ice cream we had at the Shed was to die for. So creamy, and so many flavors, I wanted two scoops in each hand. If you like gelato, you will love this ice cream!!

Huge serves of icecream in a cone or cup. Choose from approx 20 flavours, at a very realistic price. Bask in the sun on the town green as you enjoy your individually selected ice-cream flavours .

It was a bit windy and chilly when we passed by, however the lure of the ice cream was too much and we succumbed to it. Absolutely delicious ice cream, a multitude of flavirs, served with a smile.

Stopped here for lunch, and tried the falafel burgers, fries, and shakes. It's fairly cheap (cash only), it's fairly fast, and while it's a little stand, there's plenty of outdoor seating on the adjacent lawn. Makes for a fast and fine meal.
