Zanres - the best ice cream in Orkney. Mr & Mrs Zimmerman (Frank and Giovanna) Many happy memories of going in and buying a 6d "slider". Frank owned a 1964 Corsair (Monaco Red) Reg BS7435 which he used to park up the lane next the cafe. One day he left the keys in the car and when he came out of the cafe, the car was gone. Fortunately it was recovered and the culprit suitably punished.

A 50p mixture bag on a sunday evening on the way home from my friend's house. Used to take them home and eat them in bed after my weekly bath and hair wash for school next day !
