Create your own ice cream concoction for relatively cheap including any topping you can think of. Perfect for after dinner and the true seal of approval is that it’s full of locals. A little way from the centre but it’s worth the walk!

Saw the shop on the way to town and a friend had also recommended the place. Tried the small cone of strawberry soft serve dipped in chocolate which was pleasant enough. Wouldn't say it's the best ice cream I've tasted but also not the worse....More

Long lines, wide variety of toppings! Saw other customers holding large cups of ice cream- wasn’t sure what it was called so i asked the nice girl serving and she explained it to me. Delish! Must visit if you’re in town!

You can make your own ice cream combination with different topping choices of nuts, fruits and syrup. Ice cream is very good!

Stopped in here because we heard it had some great Icelandic ice cream, we were not disappointed. Good soft serve and I added cookie dough to mine which was a large chunk of dough! 👍🏻
