Really excellent ice-cream, the staff serving were pleasant and quick which helped keep the queues down, they offered small tasters of the different flavours if you couldn't decide and had the major allergens noted against the varieties. A special treat and well priced for what...More

Lovely, friendly, award winning ice cream shop on Aberdovey seafront. The Eton mess ice cream is great, and the kids loved the coconut.

Best British ice-cream ever! If you need an excuse to visit Wales, getting your frozen treat from here will be it! Excellent range of flavors served the way you want - different cones, single or multiple scoops, mixed or not, tubs, you name it! "Melt-in-the-mouth"...More

What can I say? Yum! Great ice cream. Great service. Just great! Not ridiculously over priced either! Well worth a visit, if cold things float your boat.

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!
