“well worth the trip...”
Review of The Sweet Shop

The Sweet Shop
Ranked #1 of 1 Dessert in Aberdovey
Certificate of Excellence
Description: At The Sweet Shop we make all our ice cream on site using fresh Welsh cream and milk. In the main season we offer over 20 flavours on a variety of Antonelli Brother cones in various sizes including gluten free ones! However we are not a restaurant, and are not sure how we came to be listed as such - we tried to get Trip Advisor to remove us because we do not want visitors to be disappointed when there are no tables and chairs but they wouldn't. The Sweet Shop is a cute but tiny shop specialising in take away ice cream, old fashioned sweets and chocolates!! We are also a seasonal shop and shut between October and March.What we lack in size we hopefully make up for in great, Welsh ice cream and we look forward to welcoming customers old and new!

it isn't often that i would make an effort to write a review for an ice cream shop - but the honey flavoured ice cream that i had was so lovely it made up for the sea "fret" that enveloped Aberdovey..... a long trip for a scoop of yumminess!! (and that wasjust the caramel fudgey wudgey that my other 'arf had..... at least that is what i think it was called) - plenty of choice of flavours and not just your standard ones..... go on treat yourself

Stopped here twice whilst on holiday, the kids loved it!!!! Well worth the visit and great service with great flavours. Also worth having the sweets as a good selection as well as the rock

Angela has the most amazing flavours of homemade ice-cream it makes the decision process a tough one! My favourite is white chocolate or caramel but really everything is just so yummy!

Come rain or shine, tub or cone - you just have to try one as you will definately want to come back.

AMAZING Taste with Variety of flavours. A pleasant and very attentive staff with hard working owners that make sure nothing is less than Perfection! When ever I am in the area specially in summers on the beach ..this is a must for our family! Our children simply love the ambience ,the fun of queuing with excitment to decide the flavours and enjoying them. We live locally in Dolgellau
(about 20 miles from aberdovey) and this place is always on our list to get friends and family that visit us. looking forward for more trips and more varieties of home made Ice Creams in 2014!!
