Description: Mary's Milk Bar provides a cosy wee space to enjoy all things gelato and chocolate, Everything is made by Mary in her little laboratory in the back of the shop. There's real ice cream milkshakes, traditional floats and sundaes and handmade artisan chocolate gifts. The 1930s interior looks out at the majestic Edinburgh Castle.

Sat outside this place on a Sunday waiting for it to open with the castle towering over us and a film being screened for free in the open air just outside we were not disappointed by the remarkable flavours when it opened available probably the best ice cream in the city.

By far the best gelato I have ever had. You could tell it was hand made in small batches and that a lot of thought had been put into the flavours. Over a couple of days I tried the Salted Caramel, Dark Chocolate and Gingerbread. They were all very good.

This spot was on my radar before I even arrived, thanks to TA reviews, and boy, were they right. The tiny shop is adorable, but not in an overly cute way. The menu makes you salivate immediately...three kinds of hot chocolate, anyone? Orange and cinnamon? Dark Chocolate with Sea Salt? How about fresh strawberry sorbet with black pepper??? OMG. All delicious, and served with a gracious smile at reasonable prices. A true find. GO!

I'll say it again strawberry and BLACK PEPPER! Sounds like it won't work but, was gorgeous! Lady behind the counter was polite and helped us choose flavours which was nice. We ate outside on the benches in grassmarket with a view of the castle on a beautiful day. When I visit Edinburgh again it will be one of the first places I return to!

Finally visited Mary's Milk Bar after hearing rave reviews on the icecream! It did not dissapoint, ice-cream was smooth, tasty and special. I need to come back again for more chocolatey options - flavours change daily.

View from the shop - beautiful. Enjoy your icecream on the benches in Grassmarket, or sit on the grass under the castle.
