The queue that stretched out onto the pavement was a good indication of what awaited inside. A huge variety of tasty treats that were enough to hit the spot, on what was a lovely warm August afternoon....

First came to Janetta's many years ago with my Grandpa for a vanilla cone. I now bring my son to choose from a huge variety of flavours. Delicious ice-cream, the best in St Andrews (probably the best in the East of Scotland!).

Absolutely brilliant place with fantastic choice of ice cream Very well presented. Parking nearby is a problem but the walk to and from here makes it more than worth it. Would highly recommend a visit

We'd walked past a few times and the queue was down the street, We decided to go in the evening as got a table, Took quite a while to make up our minds about what to choose but it certainly was worth the visit.

Rain or shine, cold or warm, I would visit Janettas for their delicious ice cream. An absolutely favourite flavour is elderflower sorbet but all are excellent.

We went here 2 days ago for dessert after eating elsewhere. Spoilt for choice with range of flavours. Service was excellent. Love the interior too.
