'Found' this place when all of the other places on the estate were booked or not open. Very reasonable breakfast items and great ice cream.

Wherever I go, I look for places specializing in ice cream treats. The milk shakes, the waffle cones or bowls make icecram more delicious. The serving size is large and delicious. Ice cream is a part of my daily diet so I am always thrilled when I see an ice cream deli close to my hotel.

After walking for hours, sit down and enjoy good ice cream in the courtyard. Many favors to choose from and the courtyard is pleasant with great architecture to view.

been to lots of ice cream places - it was a hot hot day (mid-90s) and ice cream hit the spot - but it was just so-so. Not bad, but not memorable. More expensive than it was worth but hey, would get it again if we wanted some.... :)

You can't fake good ice cream. I got a kids cup and was plenty. Popular place for a reason. I'm glad I tried it on advice from friends.
