Ice-cream is definitely one of the things that Musselburgh is most famous for! There are two major ice-cream parlous in the town - S. Lucas and Di Rollos. Personally I think Lucas makes the best ice-cream (maybe in the world...) but many people favour Di Rollos..... PLEASE VOTE FOR THE BEST ICE-CREAM IN THE POLL TO THE RIGHT---->


S. Lucas (The Olympia Cafe)
32-34 High Street, EH21 7AG
Tel: 0131 665 2237

Opening hours:
Monday - Saturday: 09.00 - 22.00

S. Lucas is a family-run company that was started back in 1908. The man who started it all was called Luca Scappaticcio but this was changed around to S.Luca for an easier name. The company is still ran by Luca family members. At 84, Tino is the oldest Luca and he still has an active role. Lucas has a second shop in Morningside.

The counter offers soft scoop ice-cream in Luca's three main flavours - Vanilla (amazing), Chocolate and Strawberry. There is usually also a couple of speciality flavours such as mint chocolate chip and toffee fudgy wudgy. You can also buy big tubs of frozen ice-cream so you can store them up at home. Oriana Luca makes speciality ice-cream cakes to order for occasions such as birthdays and weddings. The counter also sells random and retro sweets you'd long forgotten about!

The cafe offers a big selection of snacks, light meals and an all-day breakfast to beat your hangover! There are sandwiches, paninis, toasties, homemade lasagne, homemade burgers, homemade soup, pizzas - and of course a selection of ice-cream sundaes!

Luca's is definitely worth a trip if you're in the area!

Di Rollos of Musselburgh is also a family-run business and was established in 1899 by Domenico Di Rollo. This company does not have a cafe but sell ice-cream, Belgium chocolates, seasonal novelties, hampers, confectionery and now even jewellery in their shop!

The benefit of Di Rollos over S.Lucas is their extensive range of ice-cream - the sell over 30 flavours. You are also able to buy products such as chocolates and shortbread over their website. _*_*_*_*_*_*_*_*_*_*_*_*_*_*_*_*_*_*_*_*_*_*_*_*_*_*_*_*_*_*_*_*_*_*_*_*_*

This sound's really mouthwatering. I love Ice cream, now after hearing about Musselburg's Ice cream. I am very desperate to visit this place.
