“Great ice cream”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 7, 2013

Ideal for sundaes, milk shakes, horlicks, tea, coffee during the day, but the inside closes too early. Granted the ice cream part stays open later but it would be better if hot refreshments were available later. Been going since for over 50 years and keep going back.

“Always nice”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 7, 2013

I visit on a regular basis and the food, ice cream and coffee are all of a high standard! A little expensive though, but you pay for quality as the saying goes.

“Fab ice cream.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 7, 2013 via mobile

Fab ice cream served in many different ways. As locals we visit here often.
One drawback is the staff handle money as well as the ice cream cones, although they have paper surrounds on this is still a little off putting - hence we get pots.

“A must when visiting Scarborough”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 2, 2013

Been going here for the past 40 plus years. Well run formula that has always worked well. Fantastic desserts. Very pleasant staff. Get there early as gets very busy lunchtime onwards.

“Traditional, friendly, good ice cream - a fun visit”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 30, 2013

I soooo wanted one of the sundae's off the the very comprehensive sundae menu. However, didn't fancy fighting the kids over it so we went with more practical tubs and cones. Really, really, lovely ice cream with toppings, friendly staff and a super atmosphere - its really 1950's retro with the staff all in diner style yellow uniforms. Also, the toilets were brilliant - a refreshing change for the busy British Seaside resort of Scarborough. Recommended.
