Jannettas Gelateria has been a staple of St. Andrews since my childhood and I always enjoyed an ice cream from here as a treat. Now living away from the area and returning with an American friend on a sightseeing tour of Scotland, I suggested that we stop off here for an ice cream after visiting the castle and cathedral. We... More

Food and Service are excellent, but on top of that their ice cream is hard to beat. The flavours they have, especially at the height of summer, are too numerous to mention but the taste is phenomenal. They will also take their time to tell you what the flavours are if you are unsure.

Jannette's is a lovely family run business, great for sitting in our taking away. Service is nice and quick, however if it's a nice day be prepared for a wait, as it's popularity means it's very busy. Always spoilt for choice with such a wide range of delicious flavour of ice cream, means you'll just have to keep going back!... More

I heard that an Italian family runs this shop so we made sure to stop by. The 4th generation does not speak Italian! I told them they need to listen to their Nona! But it is really good gelato.

Long established ice-cream business in same location near the old Cathedral. Quality product available in imaginative flavours. Even go as far to publish what time their traditional vanilla ice-cream was made. Always worth a visit.

Although full the staff couldn't have been more helpful or attentive especially Sephie and Sharon. They made us feel especially welcome even though they had a full house. Service was great. I'll definitely be back. Keep up the good work.

If you haven't been then go as it's definitely the best Ice Cream shop in the area. I would recommend sitting in and ordering a sundae - there great.

Tried to get a table to sit in but nothing available, so decided to queue for an ice cream. Service quick but we just managed to get in before the rush and the queue was out the door and down the street! The ice cream was tasty, but as I chose tablet I expected there to be little bits which... More

Hi I'm sorry we couldn't offer you a table in the cafe at the time of your visit but I'm glad you were served quickly in the ice cream shop. Scottish tablet is one of our most popular flavours and therefore I'm disappointed you didn't enjoy it. With regards the queue we try as much as possible to keep the... More

Coffee and ice cream were delicious (therefore three stars) but the service in the cafe was very disappointing. We ordered three coffees, which were served separately. First coffee arrived promptly, second coffee 10mins later and third coffee took over 15mins from when the first coffee was served. I couldn't see anybody taking control of the service- maybe something for you... More
