We've stopped here for ice creams several times during the past couple of years. It's home-made and is amongst the best we've ever had anywhere! A place not to be missed!

Then went back for another 2 each - a total of 6 7 different flavours tried - all great. Even though we were passing through on a cold overcast day, were rewarded with some of best ice cream we have had... More

Popped in here for an ice cream and walked out with more than that. Ice cream was excellent, but what really caught my eye was the ice creams for dogs in doggy flavours. This is such a cool idea, besides cooling down us humans on a hot day with an ice cream they also will cool down your dog. This... More

This is the best ice cream parlour I have been to! There arw so many choices of icecream. I was spoilt for choice. I had the honeycomb icecream in a sprinkles cone which was amazing yesterday and the lemon meringue icecream today. I'm still trying to decide what to have tomorrow! I would definitely recommend this place.

Went to the sweet shop with some friends while stopping off in Aberdovey. Great ice cream with generous helpings and great selection of flavours. Was with a friend who is celiac and she was chuffed to find they had proper ice cream cones that were gluten free and didn't taste like cardboard. Not as much lactose free ice cream, but... More

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!
