A world famous café and ice cream parlour in St Andrews has received VisitScotland’s Taste Our Best award in recognition of its use of quality Scottish produce.Jannettas Gelateria Café achieved the award from the national tourism organisation for the quality and provenance of their food and drink.
The café, which underwent a large scale renovation in 2015 to create a modern, open, high-end Italian style Gelateria, was commended for its menu which boasts some of the best produce available in the region.
A fixture in the Fife town for over 100 years, the family business was opened by Bennett Jannetta in 1908 and is now run by Bennett’s Great Granddaughter, Nicola and her husband Owen.
While the café celebrates and embraces its Italian roots, its strives to ensure that products are locally sourced and Fife-grown where possible, including ingredients for its world renowned and award winning ice cream.In 2014 Jannettas were officially named the best ice-cream shop in Scotland when they picked up the Sunday Mail’s Golden Cone Award.
Taste Our Best, a joint initiative between VisitScotland and the Scottish Government is designed to recognise businesses including hotels, restaurants, cafes, takeaways, visitor attractions and B&Bs that not only offer a quality food and drink experience, but include and promote Scottish produce on their menus, giving consumers more choice.
The scheme provides businesses with an assessment of their food provision and their menu by qualified assessors, with those meeting the necessary criteria gaining the award.
