“Yum Yum Yum”
Reviewed 16 August 2014

Best ice cream I have ever tasted in my life ................. I would revisit Swansea just for a Joes - Creamy taste - fab staff ..........One of the best kept secrets in Wales - let alone Swansea.
Plain Vanilla - done to perfection - no mess, no fuss, no frills - Delicious

“Revolting”
Reviewed 16 August 2014

Paid £4.90 for a Strawberry Sundae - it came with mushy tinned strawberries and runny vanilla ice cream. Very disappointing (and expensive)

“Awful service”
Reviewed 14 August 2014

Called here on Friday 8th August to have the window closed in my face and young female staff refuse to serve me as it had gone 9pm. (3 minutes to go by my phone and watch). Won't ever call again it will be straight to Verdi's in future.

“It's all about the ice cream”
Reviewed 14 August 2014

There are two Joe's ice cream parlours, one in Mumbles and one near the Guildhall in town.
Go to whichever one you're nearest to and eat the most delicious ice cream ever created!

Don't worry about the service standards or the decor (I prefer the parlour in town) because none of that matters once you have the ice cream in your hand!!!!! It's a real treat.

“Best ice cream ever”
Reviewed 12 August 2014

There's ice cream - and then there's Joes!! Not a lot more to be said. Simply the best ice cream in the world. Definitely recommend to any visitors to the area. You won't be disappointed!
