  • Fabulous and renowned for the best Ice Cream in Jamaica dubbed " Devon House I scream" the property was the home of the first black millionaire in Jamaica. It's fantastic for family time, dates and special occasions. Love it there!
  • Awesome ice cream. Worth the wait. A fair amount of parking with patrolling security guards. Lots of areas to spread a picnic towel. Few areas for seating.
  • This a very good spot to hang out without being harassed. There are a few good craft and gift shops there. They also have places that you can buy pastries and of course some good and famous Devon House ice cream. The only two downfalls I have noticed with Devon house so far is that they need more seating areas and they need to pay much more attention to the overall maintenance and beautification of the grounds.
  • Lov love love their red velvet cake and the grapenut icecream
  • A very lovely place to relax and have the world's best ice cream and pastries with a love one. The tour of the Devon house was amazing. I love the history.
