For a haven of indulgence by the coast, I recommend Mr Moo’s Ice Cream Parlour and Coffee Shop. No cows died in the making of these sundaes.
This large outbuilding on Southfield House Farm has generous seating inside and out. It’s a bustling place but usually there’s space to sit with just a nice coffee in hand.
Of course, it is ice cream that is the real attraction. They make it on the farm, using milk from their own herd of Fresians, and it tastes absolutely delicious. The range of sundaes and flavours is a sight to behold; just two examples are “cow-pat” and “black forest moo”.
There are also plenty of tasty-looking cakes available, and various other food and drink options. Not to mention a raft of cow-related goodies for sale.
Mr Moo’s is a favourite for everyone from families to bikers. If you’re in the Skipsea area and in need of a coffee (and an ice cream), it shouldn’t be missed.
