First time trying the ice cream at Moomaid and wow! My partner and I shared a sundae. It’s the best ice cream ice eaten! Don’t miss out on popping here for a treat.

Visited here every time we visit St Ives and we are never disappointed. Best ice cream in the area. Just beware of the seagulls outside and stay and eat it inside.

Cannot put into words how good this ice cream is. Would have this over any pudding at any restaurant in st Ives! Shipwrecked flavour is not to be missed!

We’ve been eating ice-cream here annually for years. The ice-cream is beautiful, the coffees smooth and the cakes divine. Lots of ice-cream flavours on offer all made within 5 miles of St Ives. It’s a winner.

We are a small family business making ice cream and sorbet on our farm just 5 miles away. Fresh milk from our 100 cows, Rodda's cream and the finest ingredients are mixed by hand for a rich and luxurious ice cream. We love coming up with new, exotic flavours like Pina Colada and our famous Shipwreck ... We also serve freshly ground coffee and homemade cakes and cream teas plus our legendary sundaes - perfect to enjoy on our small terrace overlooking the harbour. Open year round, from 10 till late over summer. Also parlour on Porthtowan Beach.
