Fantastic! Fab choice of flavours and everyone we had was delicious! Staff are quick to serve so even if there is a queue it moves quickly. It is a must if you are in the area

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.

After more than a decade living in the UK, I had only been able to find disappointingly sharp, hard, expensive sugar-free ice cream twice. (The stuff labeled Diabetic in some supermarkets is sweetened with fructose, not safe for me at all.) Whenever I visited the...More

Sitting in the sun eating delicious ice-cream with the children and watching the gentle fun on the beach was a highlight of my holiday in Wales

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

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!
