This is an ice cream parlour like they used to be! You can eat in or take away and they also do hot & cold drinks & sandwiches & cakes. I had ice cream with chocolate sauce on one day & a strawberry sundae on another.Both were delicious. I also sampled the hot chocolate which was very rich & much to my liking. It was always busy both in the cafe & with people buying ice cream to take away so it is clearly getting it right

The sheep's milk ice cream is awesome here, but don't overlook this as a fantastic place for tasty sandwich lunch, a lovely bit of cake and a wide selection of nice cold drinks, teas and coffees. It's VERY CHEAP and VERY, VERY GOOD! A simple, relaxed cafe with lots of tables and toilets. Totally unpretentious and very cheap by Hay's standards. We were in Hay for two days and came for lunch, tea/coffee, ice cream and cakes. A brilliant place for a quick stop between bookshops! The staff are also friendly and efficient so we never waited very long even when they were quite busy.

Fabulous ice creams with wonderful flavours. The rhubarb and ginger drew us in. We only stopped for ice cream so I can't comment on the cafe.

This lovely Ice Cream bar also doubles up as a cafe, and provides a warm welcome to those who like a relaxed atmosphere and a hot drink. Whilst the range of sandwiches and cakes is limited there is defiantly no limit to the effort and passion that go into making these delicious light lunches and snacks. The brownies provide the customer a smooth sensation for their taste buds which they will savoir for the rest of their time in Hay. The coffee is also divine with real chocolate drops sprinkled on top. The interior is cool and the staff are always helpful and friendly, with the locals always being happy for a chat. But can sheep's milk make for good ice cream? you may ask. Well, I suppose you'll just have to come in and find out....
