We had eaten out and did not have room for a dessert but after a brisk walk around Southwold topping up on provisions we decided to have an ice cream. They were absolutely delicious - my friend had the rum one and I stuck to good old vanilla. The staff were superb - really bright and cheery. Not to be... More

We are more visitors to this shop in the warmer weather. They have such a great selection of ice cream flavours and very good portions. We'll be back. Thank you

Do not miss the chance to visit especially if you like ice cream. Everyone is great, helpful and nothing is too much trouble. The rum and raisin equivalent is astounding.

If you've got a sweet tooth and want some sweets that come from the USA then this is the place to make a visit. Also a good selection of ice creams to enjoy on a nice hot day whilst taking in the sea views.

But unfortunately the service was absolutely terrible, the woman behind the counter was rude and managed to ruin my day to... More

Great little shop, serve drinks and ice cream, although on this occasion we were shopping for a gift and the obligatory souvenir magnet.

We always visit when we come to Southwold - where else can you go to a sweet shop that opens until 10pm? The choice of global sweets is amazing and the costs reflect the import costs. The ice creams are amazing too especially as a evening treat. Our boys especially love the pez machines & now have a darth Vader... More

Although we're not a restaurant as such, we do have a couple of tables at which you can enjoy a scoop or two of delicious ice cream and a peruse of our selection of goodies!!
We have one of the largest selection of imported goodies in the area from America, Australia and New Zealand so if it's Tim Tams, Lucky Charms or Jelly Belly Beans you'll know where to come! :)
Our ice cream is either local or Italian and we always have a choice of at least 15 flavours :)
If it's a souvenir you're after, we've got that covered too, see you soon!
