We went to Devon House as part of our tour. The I Scream was delicious and the patties were the best we've had in Jamaica. The bakery offered all sorts of cakes I couldn't resist the banana and walnut bread. This is a lovely place to just sit and eat and take in your surroundings. We didn't have time to... More

Good local Ice Cream. Lines were a bit long but moved quickly. Nice grounds and a couple little shops also on the compound. Worth a visit.

The Devon House is worth a peak, I was only in Kingston for 3 days but glad we stopped here for some of the best ice cream! The small shops surrounding the Devon House are really cute and the house beautiful

Yum! Just as good as I remembered as a child. There were flavors on the menu that I was unsure of and without asking I was given a sampling. The warm smiles and eager assistance made this a beautiful stop on my quick vacation. I swore before entering I was going to have the Stout flavored ice-cream, but after tasting... More

Well I am a local, but Devon House retains its No.1 position for consistent good quality multi - flavored iced delights at the Ice Cream shop, as well as true Jamaican patties ( meat, poultry, fish and veggie), tarts, cakes, Hmmmm Delightful, and delicious. The ambience is relaxing and certainly worth spending time. Ice cream as good as any where... More

This is a great little green space in the city of Kingston. This beautiful Jamaican spot has a restaurant, gift shops, wine store and ice cream spot. You can relax outdoor in the green lush park or you can do window shopping at the various shops that are on the property, even better have delicious icecream. Whatever you do it... More

I took a wonderful tour of Devon House. Very interesting history and a beautifully restored house that has some of the original furniture, et al. The tour even included a complimentary scoop of ice cream. YUM!!! I can see why they're rated #4 in the world. There's also a nice outdoor courtyard to eat in. It's a nice, quiet and... More

We thoroughly enjoyed Devon House. It is a picturesque colonial house set in lovely gardens. You don't have to enter the house and pay for it if you don't want to - but we did and I think its worthwhile. For the entrance fee, which I think was around $10 we received a free ice cream from their famous ice... More

We were told that the ice cream was to die for. So, we decided to make the trip there. And yes, the ice cream was excellent. If you are in Kingston, go to Devon House and eat some ice cream. Enjoy the grounds while you are at it.
