“Bet You Can't Eat Three Scoops”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 8, 2012

This restaurant was recommended to my wife and I by our neice who lives in Sidmouth, We arrived Saturday lunchtime and were very lucky to find a table. The place was very clean, the staff of young ladies were polite and very helpful. I expect that most reviewers will comment on the ice cream as this place is getting a very good name for the quality and certainly the quantity of the portions. I was warned not to ask for three scoops of the many flavours on offer - but I did!!!
Black Cherry it took me back years to when ice cream WAS ice cream - I finished it - wonderful.
There was much more on offer than ice cream at this very good restaurant - try it on you next visit to Sidmouth - bet you struggle with three scoops.
A certificate should be awarded by the restaurant if you finish it.

“The Cream of all Ice Cream Parlours”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 5, 2012

Staying near Sidmouth this week and already have been to this place three times! How do they make a profit, OMG i've eaten in plenty of ice cream parlours but this place tops the lot. Not only is the ice cream made on the premises but the quality is exceptionally high and the size of the portions - well I asked for two scoops to accompany my coffee, there was enough ice cream for three people, even if you were served half the portion this would be more than any other place for no more price wise. Pleasant cheery atmosphere, loads of bubbly young girls obviously enjoying their jobs under the careful eye of their team leader.
Give it a try if your in Sidmouth, you'll be suprised and reinvigourated by your experience

“Just right!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 28, 2012

I have been here a couple of times now and have always received good service, excellent coffee and enjoyable food.

It's a popular little venue so tables are not always free, but they do take-away too.

There is a fantastic selection of ice-cream with some interesting flavours, and you can even buy tubs of it to take home with you.

The home-made baked products are all of good quality and have always been enjoyabled.

I would recommend for a good coffee and light bite!

Thank you for your review. We are planning to increase the number of seats, but as always with these things it is not as simple as it sounds and also requires capital that we don't currently have! Hopefully we will manage this within the next couple of years.
