Delicious ice cream - really outstanding.

It was freezing in November so going in was a brazen thing but worth it.

We also had soup and sandwiches on day two - outstanding.

They allow samples - I liked Baileys, Maple walnut and Armadillo flavours best - pistachio was not a hit nor the Tayberry.

Try to sit in a booth rather than a hard chair.

Finally, the flat above is haunted but the poltergeist did not appear during our meals.

Thanks for the great review.
The story surrounding the ghost is that 110 years ago a customer was so overcome by the amazing taste of our ice cream the shock was too much and died on the spot. So from that day forward, as long as we continue to serve wonderful ice cream the ghost will remain friendly and cause no harm!

This is a favourite stop for us after a meal in town. We miss desert wherever we r and go here. Have eaten in the cafe too, light bites usually but ice cream is delicious.

When eating in St Andrews, skip the dessert course and head for an ice cream. However.....the chocolate sauce that goes hard was stopped, then it was brought back but they don’t put it on cones anymore because it’s too messy! Come on guys, that was the best part of getting a cone!! Has their been complaints? Just pour it over the hot pot, let it set and give the cone to the customer. What’s the point in missing dessert now?!

Hi
Thanks for the review.
With regards the chocolate sauce, we no longer have the topping that hardens very quickly when in contact with ice cream, as we are currently trying to source an improved product, so at the moment we are able to offer our home made chocolate fudge sauce but unfortunately we can't serve this on cones as it doesn't have the same quick hardening effect and therefore to avoid any mess we can only offer this on ice cream which is in a tub
We hope to have a new chocolate sauce soon,sorry for the confusion.
Regards Nicola
