The ice cream here is awesome! Our favourite is the chocolate but the others are good too, we have tried most of them. Amazing waffles too. The place to go if you want good ice cream.

Hi Rico, Thank you for the splendid review on our Newlands Cafe, I really appreciate the feedback you've sent through! I agree and while we try to not play favourites, with the 65% Chocolate in the mix, it's hard not to!

Whilst in the area, and as a dessert, after a lunch elsewhere we decided to have an ice cream as a palate cleanser. There is a reasonable selection of flavours available. After having sat down with our cones we could concentrate on the experience. We...More

Hi there, I'm saddened to hear that the ice cream you had at our cafe was icy and not creamy in texture. All of our ice creams should be rich in flavour with a smooth creamy texture. Our teams in both our kitchen and in...More

I come here quite often, but it was the first time I had my waffle with the marshmallow topping - absolutely heavenly!!! Great spot to come with friends and appease that sweet tooth!

Firstly the waffles are amazing and the flavours of ice creams are my favourite part. The vibe is so lively and recommend this place to everyone who wants to treat themselves

Had an enjoyable waffle. Friendly service. I will come back for another waffle or a banana split. A very enjoyable place to visit on a Sunday afternoon.

Hi there, Thanks for the great review! I'd definitely suggest trying out the banana split if you haven't already. It's a Sundae Afternoon Delight! ;)

Its a walking distance from my house and a nice easy to access pick me up spot. Love the place, love the staff. Not your average ice cream, it's better and yummy!

Nice atmosphere and busy into the early evenings. Staff were very good. Came here for 'desert' and not disappointed. Banana split was spot on - caramelised bananas adding that special touch.

Hi Ashley, Thank you for sharing your feedback! I must agree, the Banana Splits are hard to resist when sugar cravings set in, especially with that to-die-for caramel sauce :D

I loved the waffle with a scoop of sweet cream ice cream, topped with a toasted marshmallow!! It was a thick and fluffy waffle with the perfect shape.

I took my little girl for ice cream. The scoop size is generous and unless you have a huge appetite 1 scoop is more than enough which is good as it's pricey. I had the cookie dough flavour which at first is really tasty but...More

Deliciously mouth watering ice creams with great flavors to choose from. Chose a half and half coffee and chocolate milkshake and it was scrumptious. Once you've had an ice cream or shake at The Creamery you will definitely feel the need for a repeat visit!...More
