Excellent choice of ice cream flavours which you can have in one of several type of cone or in a mini tub for one person. This is our guilty treat in the summer when going for a walk around Helmsley :)

Been to Helmsley lots of times and frustrated that I never discovered this little gem before. Lovely staff, super cakes and hot drinks, ice cream that is probably the best I've ever tasted and home made chocolates. Now you tell me, what more could you...More

Enjoyed our experience here very much. Food was good as was the service, would go again and would recommend a diet first because I put on weight because the food was so good. Would go back.

Stopped by on a Wednesday afternoon in late September. Staff person was friendly. Enjoyed the coffee and cakes. A nice little place; will keep in mind for future visits to Helmsley. They had some delicious looking ice creams, too.

The ice cream (all flavours) do not disappoint. Always a good selection and always very moreish. Not the cheapest but definitely quality and if you decide to use the cafe too I can highly recommend the hot chocolate and the tea. A very popular venue

Not sure how to describe this calamitous café. The assistant was a mixture of chatty and friendly but also very ignorant. She was seemingly distracted by nothing as we were the only customers there when we ordered. It was very bipolar to say the least....More
