The icecream is great and homemade, the sweet treats are delicious but a little pricey, the drinks are well made and the barista is experienced! Overall very good, a little pricey but worth it.

I have been here a few times for gelato now and it has not disappointed. Sparrow offer a wide range of flavours, which is great for people who like to try new things. The staff are always friendly and are more than happy to let you taste the different flavours before purchasing.

Delicious gelato - a good range of gourmet flavours to choose from (pear and rhubarb is divine). Staff are so friendly and attentive, especially as I often need to clarify specific ingredients in the flavours due to food allergies.

Visited this place with family for icecream on a Saturday night. This place is really nice and has a good feel and selection of icecreams which the kids loved. Unfortunaly the kids ordered way too much icecream as you do when you are a kid so thought I'd ask if they could give me a little styro container to take... More

Another bonus is their amazing gelato. It is absolutely beautiful and we often stop for one after eating dinner out somewhere in crows nest. Flavours... More

I love a Mocha and at Sparrow Mochas are the best. Unlike some cafes, all the Baristas at Sparrow know what they're doing and will go out of their way to try to satisfy your specific coffee needs. Amazing variety of ice-cream and cake to satisfy any sweet tooth and the breakfast menu is outstanding. It's cosy in winter and... More
