Sought this place out after searching “best ice cream in Lyme Regis” on TripAdvisor. Four of us tried 6 of the 7 flavours and various combinations of cones and tubs came to £14.50. Stand-outs were a fantastically creamy vanilla, a delicious cherry meringue ripple and...More

It's good. Would I say it's the best? No. But it is definitely worth trying. The Oreo chocolate was smooth. The sorbets were really nice as well. The new York cheesecake was too salty IMO. Still, it's a nice little treat on a hot day.

This was by far the best gelato I've had for a very long time and I compare it to Italian standards! I wish we would have a place like this near by. I would recommend this place to anyone, the hazelnut ice-cream was fantastic.. even...More

We LOVE this shop! You must go. The Gelato is AWESOME. New flavours daily. This started our family love of gelato a few years ago when we spotted this shop. We seek out gelato shops everywhere we go on holiday now!

Artisan ice creams in delicious flavours like, chocolate sorbet, basil & chilli, peanut butter, salted caramel, cherries & chocolate & strawberry sorbet. They even do a bacon flavour for dogs! The staff are totally unpretentious and lovely 10\10 keep the good work up!

We had carrot cake, raspberry ripple and vanilla and everyone really enjoyed their ice creams. Well worth hunting out the shop . The lady serving had a lovely manner too .

I was so happy to find dairy free ice-cream in Lyme and this place didn't disappoint! Friendly service and the ice cream was delicious. Fewer different flavours than the ice-cream shops along the seafront but this place is definitely quality over quantity.

We went in a couple of times during our stay in Lyme Regis. Both times the staff were absolutely lovely, the Eton mess ice cream is to die for and the carrot cake flavour was amazing! They also take card payment which is handy 😊
