We regretted our expensive visit to this place The much boasted homemade ice cream was thin and sugary to us while just next door is a terrific place. The young staff are sweet but the management are off-putting, seeming stressed and snappish. Don't bother.

Another trip to Aberdovey, and another batch of Ice Cream; new set of flavours to go with the old favorites, and all of the ones we tried were excellent. Great staff too! We'll be back!

We always finish up a visit to our favourite sea side resort with a visit to our favourite ice cream shop. The choice is wide ( my favourite is ginger *yummy*) The staff are quick but always seem to have time for everyone.

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!
