1. Parisella's Ice Cream Parlour

With its parlour on Conwy High Street, and a kiosk on the harbour, it's hard to think of a visit to the historic town without stopping for a scoop or two of Parisella's ice cream.

Parisella's is also available at the cafe in Happy Valley, Llandudno.

One TripAdvisor review said: "Best ice-cream in the world. If you was nearby to home I would come every weekend. I once took 8 tubs home all the way to Grimsby!"

2. Forte's Cafe Restaurant

Another firm favourite with holidaymakers and locals alike is Forte's on Mostyn Street in Llandudno.

Serving Italian and British cuisine, the cafe is perhaps best known for its ice cream treats.

One TripAdvisor comment read: "Fantastic food and service, had a lovely time here. Next time we come back were definitely coming here again. All staff had an amazing sense of humour everyone was so welcoming. Best part was the ice cream sundaes!"

3. West Shore Beach Cafe

Situated on Dale Road on Llandudno's popular West Shore, this beach cafe is perfect for those wanting a quick bite or a frozen treat.

Reviewer Miss Traveller said: "Perfect location, located just behind the West Shore beach car park. Offers a wide selection of food, hot/cold drinks and ice creams. A very welcome break from the beach! Sometimes it’s busy but what do people expect when this is the only cafe on the West Shore beach, busy means good remember!"

4. Llandudno Pier Ice Cream & Milkshakes

Situated on Llandudno's iconic pier, this is the perfect place to pick up an ice cream when exploring what the town has to offer. 

Reviewers remarked on both the quality and quantity of the ice cream served.

A TripAdvisor reviewer said: "We visited Llandudno for the weekend, the weather was great. We had ice creams from here twice! Really nice ice cream and you get loads!"

5. Conwy Ice Cream

Situated on Conwy's High Street, this shop offers traditional local ice cream as well as soft serve.

Reviewers commented on this parlour's value for money.

Just watch out for seagulls!

Reviewer Leha commented: "Happened upon this little ice-cream shop today on our way back from the visiting the castle with the children who were all begging for ice-creams. Thought I'd be digging deep in my purse but was pleasantly surprised to find that five Ice-creams (combination of tubs and cones) all came to under a tenner. Don't even remember the last time that happened for lovely ice creams. Excellent friendly service too and very patient with us while the children all chose what flavour they wanted (too many to choose from!) We were gonna head back there to replace one that the seagulls had swiped from my 8 year olds hand mid -lick but had wondered to far so will make a visit again the next time we are in Conwy."

6.  Pantri Bach Cafe & Gift Shop

Both visiting and local reviewers commented on the affordability of food at this cafe on the promenade in Pensarn.

Mum and daughter reviewers said: "Went for lunch with my mum, she hasn’t been very well and just lost a good friend. She had steak and mushroom homemade pie and I had a roast pork dinner, both excellent. We then had a knickerbocker with sweets - perfect. Would recommend everything

7. Surfside Cafe

Described by many of the 100+ reviewers on TripAdvisor as a "gem".

Situated on the prom in Pensarn, there is plenty to keep visitors entertained including bingo and 2p machines.

One reviewer commented: "This little place is packed with it all, fun, character, nostalgia, excitement and a lot of good times! The staff are always very kind and the owners are very welcoming and make you feel like your visiting family. My kids love playing golf then the 2p machines and bingo but most of all they love getting the prizes! The food is some of the best I’ve had and all very reasonably priced and good portions.

"I definitely recommend this place as a all rounder for any family and a trip out!"

8. Sidoli Cafe

Situated on Rhyl's Wellington Road, this traditional seaside cafe and ice cream parlour has been feeding visitors and locals alike for generations.

Calling it a "historic, stylish gem" reviewer Martin said: "It is the first time I entered this cafe for over 60 years. Walking into my past. A spotlessly clean and sharp evocation of what an ice cream parlour was in the 1950’s - beautiful. The service was friendly and charming.

"An absolute gem and Rhyl should celebrate it."

9. The Village Sweet Shop

Situated on Rhuddlan High Street, this venue offers a range of crafts and activities - and, of course, ice cream.

Calling it "a cute little find" one reviewer commented: "We were midway on a walk from Rhyl to Rhuddlan Castle and back along the river - walked down the high street to see what was there and came across this cute little shop - the ice cream was delicious and just what we needed! Some fab flavours too, and such an array of sweets available."

10. Batch Ice Cream Parlour

Situated on Rhyl's Marina Quay, reviewers said this "light and airy" parlour was a particular favourite with families.

Lots of the reviewers were returning customers.

One reviewer posted: "Good value for money, plenty of choice of ice cream flavour, and other dessert options to have with the ice cream. Nice seating. Quick service."

11. Sweet Corner Llangollen

Located on Castle Street, Llangollen, and previously knowns as Sweet Daisy, this is a popular stop for visitors wanting to try some of the wide varieties of ice cream and fudge flavours on offer.

One reviewer said: "We came to sweet daisy for ice cream after a meal at the pub. There were eight of us so a big order. The man who served us was lovely, smiley and patient. There was a long queue forming behind us but we didn’t feel rushed. The ice creams were delicious and my sister said ‘felt like they went on forever’ which is quite the compliment! I had a rocky road and it was the best most delicious ice cream I’ve had all summer."

Honourable mention: Red Boat Ice Cream Parlour

Although not in Denbighshire or Conwy, no list of top ice cream parlours in North Wales would be complete without mention of Red Boat Ice Cream Parlour in Beaumaris.

With more than 1,000 reviews on TripAdvisor, Red Boat is a "must visit" destination for visitors to Anglesey.

Reviewer Abby B summed it up, posting: "You can’t go to Beaumaris without stopping in here! Every imaginable flavour of ice cream served in extra large portions. Really friendly staff and lots of other bits for grown ups to enjoy. They even have a baileys milkshake!"
