Great little place! Friendly service, delicious ice cream, great waffles. The ice cream is made fresh on site everyday and really is excellent.

I've been to Fred's a few times over the years. Always good ice cream and the waffles are nice as well. Excellent choice. Enjoy!

We stopped off here while visiting Antigua on a cruise. We were tempted in by the customers enjoying gorgeous ice creams and we were not disappointed! The choice of home-made ice-creams was impressive and while you stand wondering what to choose you can watch the ice-cream makers churning away at the rear of the shop. When we finally made up...

Very creamy ice cream, not very cold but good, I'd go for the sorbet next time for a more refreshing treat. Seats were all taken by locals that seemed to be hanging for the day, not even sure they had ice cream in hand.

We had freshly made waffles, with ice cream. There isn't much else to say, apart from they were delicious, and I would happily have gone back for seconds. The only downside was that the seating area is very small, so I imagine it can be very busy when cruise ships are in town...

After a few hours of wandering around St. John's in the mid-day sun, I was ready for a sit-down. Luckily I came across this little spot just in time before my legs gave out. There are only 5-6 tables on the little veranda in front and they were all full. The place does coffees, hot chocolate and waffles as well... More

This is a great place to relax and cool off with some homemade frozen heaven...locals and tourists alike seemed to be gathering there, and for good reason.

The ice cream (coconut and Belgian chocolate) and waffle cones were delicious. The sorbet (passion fruit and pineapple) were refreshing and delicious. The waffle in our order was forgotten (served to someone else) and when we finally received ours it was raw inside and had burnt crumbs outside. We will return for the ice cream and sorbet and hope the... More
