Mary's Milk bar Ice Cream is a must try if you are in Edinburgh but be warned the flavours are absolutely spot on! The Salted Caramel was stunningly good with what tasted like actual sea salt in the caramel. The reason I warn is due to the Malt and Walnut which I got which tasted a bit too spot on (I have no idea why I asked for it.) My girlfriend got Hot Cross Bun flavour for Easter which tasted so realistic it was bonkers. My only critique of this place is that I'd like to see a bit of a larger variety but saying that I think they do rotate flavours anyway.

We stopped here after reading reviews. It’s a lovely place and thankfully it was quiet so we got a seat. We had two cappuccinos that were presented beautifully on a tray. We had two scoops of ice cream, milk and hot cross bun which was the special on for Easter. It was very relaxed and great to get away from the hustle and bustle.

With the risk of repeating what other reviewers have said, best ice cream in Edinburgh. There was a queue and no place to sit, that's how popular it is. The ice cream was simply amazing, big and delicious.

Such an adorable little ice cream shop with amazing views of Edinburgh Castle. After seeing a video on Facebook of this shop, I sought this place out during my trip to Scotland. It did not disappoint.

I am so happy we stopped in for desert - my strawberry ice cream cone was incredibly refreshing, and too sweet to the point where I would feel ill.
