Cafola's is an institution in Newtownards, with many generations running this classic milk bar. The service is friendly and quick, and the food (particularly the ice cream) brilliant. If you don't stop here you are mad. This place is a MUST. LOVE CAFOLA'S.

I have been known to buy a large tub, wrap in newspaper in a freezer bag, and carry it 60 miles home, just to have Cafolla's ice cream when I want it! I've been enjoying it for fifty years and it's just as good today.

Great for frys and tasty chips, however I think 20p for a portion of brown sauce is ridiculous. The menu could do with offering a few more choices.

Very traditional chip shop. Old look but friendly and welcoming. Had a lovely chip and ice cream to die for. People come here in cars just for ice cream.

Another Family run business. In the square on Newtownards. Prominent in every way. Ice cream the old fashion way of making it. Italian. Food is always in plenty. The people are very friendly. Like to chat.
