Issie's shop right across from the main car park and next to Supervalu, has a lovely choice of ice creams for one to try. Also available are selections of handmade chocolates that are of very good quality. We enjoyed our stop here and highly recommend.

Have been coming to the area for years and Issies is always a treat from the ice creams to the amazing chocolate. We always take home chocolate buttons to make hot chocolates when we come home, to remind us of Issies.

Ideal place for a cup of hot chocolate after you do your weekly shop in Supervalue. And you can buy some delicious chocolates to take home.

Stopped in here after lunch up the street. Always nice to see these small places offering their own produce. Very friendly, cheerful owner. Lovely ice-cream, chocolate and coffee. Worth a stop for sure.
