George & Davis is a slightly eccentric cafe on Little Clarendon Street, with a limited menu that consists of bagels, ice cream (in many flavours), coffee/soft drinks, and a few other sweet items such as brownies, flapjacks and waffles. So although I have had coffees there before, this was my first proper meal. A salmon/cream cheese bagel was fine; toasted... More

G&D's had always been hailed as a local treasure, but surprisingly this was my first visit. I had a waffle (burnt) with Ferrero rocher ice cream that actually tasted of nothing. The ice cream was crumbly, not creamy at all. To finish the "sundae" there was canned whipped cream. All a bit meh.

Extremely delicious ice cream serving up some home made goodies with tons of flavors to pick from and they also have a good coffee bar and sandwich section! Do try them out if you are around, well worth it!

Had ice cream and coffee at G&D at the weekend and really enjoyed it! I loved the studenty feeling of the place and thought it was very good value. Ice creams were very tasty and so was the coffee! We went there out of the blue but I will definitely go back again!

As always, the ice cream here is absolutely fantastic (I've been coming for over 20 years!). I don't mind waiting in a queue but a couple more members of staff would really speed things up :-) The music was stupidly loud today, which is why I'm not giving the review 5 stars. We could early hear each other talking, which... More

Lovely ice cream and flavours. Shame about the long queue on a sunny Sunday afternoon. Four members of staff. Two serving. One "half cleaning, half talking" the other chap chatting to the girl cleaning and using his ipad. In fairness he's also been on the phone saying how long the queue is. My advise would be focus on service. Serve... More
