THE RECENTLY published National Geographic: Food Journeys of a Lifetime: 500 Extraordinary Places to Eat Around the Globe has listed Devon House as the fourth-best place in the world to eat ice cream.

The book noted the following: "Devon House is a masterpiece of Caribbean Victorian architecture and home to the island's most celebrated ice-cream stand.

"The 27 flavours run a broad gamut, from traditional cherry and pistachio to exotic island treats like mango, coconut, and soursop. There is even an offbeat, beer-based ice cream called Devon Stout. Grab a cone and recline in the sprawling gardens," the rave review of the Jamaican-based ice-cream parlour continued.
