1. Queens Cafe

A long family favourite. I’m sure my parents thought I loved walks to Queen’s Park but it was really an excuse to get an ice cream cone from here.  Suitably vintage and retro.

Soave’s ice cream muirhead cafe best ice cream Glasgow

3. Soave’s

Mr Foodie’s favourite ice cream growing up is available to buy at various shops.  Their Scottish tablet flavour is suitably naughty.

Simply Greetings, 116 Main St, Baillieston, Glasgow G69 6AE

Caffe C, 106 Cumbernauld Road, Muirhead, G69 9AA (just outside of Glasgow)

The university cafe Glasgow best ice cream Glasgow

4. University Cafe

An institution, don’t be swayed by the deep-fried mars bar. Stick to a single or double nougat for taste of creamy ice cream.

The University Cafe 87 Byres Road, Glasgow, G11 5HN

5. Newlands Cafe

A gem of a place. Ice cream, sweeties and a proper traditional cafe.   Their vanilla ice cream is simply 😍.  Give their pistachio a try as well.

Newlands Cafe 262 Kilmarnock Road, Glasgow, G43 2XS
