“Traditional wee coffee shop with great home baking.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 23, 2014

Stopped here with my wife for a coffee and a cookie when taking some photos of Broughty Castle. The cosy little shop was quite busy which is usually a good sign and we were not disappointed. I had a lovely latte and a slice of home made Brownie (apparently the owner is up baking at 5am every day so cakes are all fresh)
My wife had butternut squash and chilli soup which came with a warmed scone, she advises that it was divine.
In summary, Iced Gems is a small cosy, friendly wee place which always seems busy. Great coffee, lovely food friendly welcome.
We'll definitely be back.

“fresh and delicious”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 27, 2014

Just had lovely lunch, sandwiches very fresh and nice addition of side salad. Everything spotless, staff friendly tea/coffee
good. As for the bakes, you could give Mary Berry a run for her money! Great to see an independent coffee shop thriving in the Ferry!

“Lovely”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 25, 2014 via mobile

What a lovely place. The service was fantastic and was the home baking. Will Def go back and try again. This is quite a new business and is doing very well by the looks of it.

“great service and value for money”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 21, 2014

We've been in Iced Gems a few times now and want to refute one of the other comments. Service is first class and the value for money is outstanding - and they happily cater for a wide range of dietary requirements. It's not big enough to give bad service!
