“Awesome Chocolate Cayenne Milkshake - That's right.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 3, 2013

We weren't even hungry or thirsty. This place is just too cute to pass up. We were pleasantly surprised when we went in and were greeted. We wouldn't have imagined ordering a chocolate cayenne milkshake but we were in the mood for something different.

Best mikshake ever! .

“Fabulous”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 29, 2013

I read about Mary's in an article recently and we went for a treat after lunch today.
The ice cream was so good we went back for another delicious round..
Not to be missed.
As an international chef I'm very particular about ice cream having made and eaten many and this was up there with the best.
Will be back soon to get a stock for home!

“Yummy”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 29, 2013

I'm so pleased I found this little place. I took some relatives from Canada - they loved it. Great icecream - I like the salted caramel and plum sorbet.

“Amazing gelato”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 23, 2013

After walking round Edinburgh during the day we stopped off here for some gelato and weren't dissapointed. Awesome array of flavours (I had the salted caramel, my brother had the chocolate orange). Great value for money. I didn't want to leave! We will definitely be back on our next trip.

“Save me! (Then again, don't...)”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 20, 2013

We were looking for an ice cream during the unseasonably hot Edinburgh summer and were directed to Mary's Milk Bar. Apparently new on the scene, after, tasting the gelato we really did not want to leave,

Strawberry and fresh mint sorbet, Turkish coffee gelato (flavoured with cardamom).

These lassies have hit it on the head, and they are only just starting out. Great things await.

We will be back.
