Even the locals come here for icecream. Despite this being a huge tourist trap, even us locals go to Coombs when we need a good icecream fix. Huge quantities of delicious ice cream

The ice cream parlour is one of the best on the Island! The list of flavours is endless ... all delicious! There is usually a long lineup for this delicious ice cream, but well worth the wait! Treat yourselves!

Kids loved the ice cream which was a welcome treat after walking around the Coombs market, seeing the goats and having a light lunch.

Absolutely huge ice cream cones with a large selection of flavours and extremely reasonably priced. On a nice day very pleasant to sit on their deck.

Trying to decide which flavour you want from so many is not easy. To make the decision a bit easier we opted for the 2 scoop cone, which in this case turned out to be a case of biting off more than you can eat! By the time I had selected my 2 flavour choices, the 2 scoops were closer... More
