The double thick chocolate cookie milkshake is incredible. I had it about 3 times in one week. My partner had doughnuts which she also enjoyed and were reasonably priced.

We pride ourselves on knowing all the donut joints and this is the very besting Cape Town. Combine this with the fresher strawberry, chocolate dipped cone and the yummy multi-flavored softserves in many flavors and you have a winner. Excellent service too. Two very happy...customers.More

We used to go to a place called The Dairy Den in Randburg 50 years ago! So we decided to pop in and try this place. It's soft serve how I remembered and I chose a vanilla and chocolate softserve with a Flake. My husband...had a vanilla dipped in caramel. The difference now is the cone as they are far nicer than the plain ones of way back, but after having eaten great ice cream / gelato, I was a bit let down. If you love soft serve though you won't be disappointed.More

This tiny place offers delicious ice-cream and donuts. We enjoyed the coffee cream one. There are also small ones for children to enjoy. Parking is available in the side and main roads and there is very limited seating inside and outside. Ideal for take away....It would be better suited in a more accessible and bigger location. But well worth a visit for a delicious cone. There are interesting flavours including Belgian chocolate icecream.More

After Insta-stalking The Dairy Den for months, it was no surprise where my priorities were. While I didn't post much on social media while we were traveling, I have been posting photos since we got back, and I was incredibly pleased when they reposted my...photo on their Instagram. Our primary order was the Belter, a Cinnamon Sugar Donut ringed around a black cone and topped with Honeycomb Crunch. We also selected three donuts - mint, fudge, and Kit Kat. These were the spongiest, tastiest donuts. Unfortunately, they are closed on Mondays, or you better believe I would've been back here the next day. There were still so many things on their menu I would've loved to try!More

This is among the best ice cream I have ever had. We got the peppermint ice cream in the chocolate cone, it was fantastic.

Hi ice-cream was cream. Love the dairy den special coffee; a swirl of ice-cream inside the coffee - so yum. Enjoyed the cinnamon doughnuts. They are reasonably priced. The shop is quite small but loved the pink walls. Will definitely be visiting with my kids...again.More

Interesting toppings on soft serve sugar cones. Tastes good at very reasonable prices. Not recommended for big group as the store is really small.

My wife and I recently enjoyed a holiday in Cape Town and were lucky enough to discover this ‘Den’ by chance whilst we sheltered from a sudden downpour. We made a couple of visits to The Dairy Den during our stay as the doughnuts (especially...the chocolate covered doughnuts) were just too good to resist. The staff were always very welcoming and special thanks to Harry who came to our rescue during the storm for his exceptional customer service.More

Unfortunately on the day we went, their Vanilla soft serve did not work therefore they could not serve any of the SWIRL ice cream on the menu and nobody even offered the option of a donut cone which is supposed to be their specialty. The...quality of their chocolate ice cream was very poor compared to some of the amazing ice cream available in Cape Town. Unfortunately a very disappointing experience.More
