“Best Ice Creams In Town”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 November 2013

I am local and regularly go to jus' desserts. Wide variety of ice creams to choose from as well for a fairly reasonable price. I'd definitely recommend buying your ice cream from here.

“Cracking ice cream shop”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 October 2013

The title says it all. Lots of flavours to choose from as well as sorbets. The kids always choose not to have a dessert in a restaurant, so they can get an ice cream from here. We can all heartily recommend it.

“Decisions, decisions!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 September 2013

We always visit Jus’ Desserts for our ice creams when we are in St. Ives. There is a multitude of flavours of both ice creams and sorbets to suit all tastes, young and old.

It takes us a while to decide what we are going to have as all their flavours are delicious and there is such a lot to choose from.

The lemon meringue sorbet is lovely and tangy and the sherry trifle is good, it had little pieces of sponge in it. The children preferred the traditional ice creams such as chocolate, vanilla and mint choc chip flavours, etc.

The friendly staff ask you which type of cone you would prefer and once you have been served with generous scoops of ice cream, they offer you a variety of free toppings as well!

It is by far the tastiest ice cream we have had for a long time, you just have to watch out for the seagulls!

The only negative comment I have is that my husband wanted to know why he had to have his lemon sorbet in a tub and was told he couldn’t have it in a cone! He could not understand the logic behind this as he has had the sorbet in cones elsewhere. He said maybe the seagulls in St. Ives don’t like tubs and don’t know how to use the little plastic spoons!

“Always busy, always delicious”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 August 2013 via mobile

We usually pay one visit here per day when we are in St. Ives. The ice cream is pretty good value compared to others on the harbour front as the scoops are generous. My kids have lost their scoop of ice cream from cones on a number of occasions and they have always been replaced for free without question. Staff are efficient and could be mistaken for being grumpy at times but always polite, I think they are just very busy! I have never felt the need to complain about any of them. Watch out for seagulls!

“Fab!”

Great ice cream, value for money (you get a huge scoop), loads to choose from - toppings aswell! The staff warn you about the seagulls and they will try to get at your delicious cone!
