The burnt salted caramel ice cream was to die for. It is also located in a quaint little shopping district.

Can't wait to go back when I am next in London. For me the hot chocolate was perfect in terms of sweetness and the cookie ice cream sandwiches were really good.

Heard about this place in the londonist under quirky attractions. Nitrogen ice cream certainly is quirky, and delicious. A little expensive but we'll worth a try

I had the brown-wich which consist of icecream in between 2 brownies. The brownies were good, not too sweet and it taste good with the icecream. I had it with salted caramel, where they sprinkled some salt on top of the icecream- which i think does not taste that great. For me it taste like any other icecream. Perhaps try... More

I'd seen photos of this place on Facebook and was keen to make sure we visited on a recent trip to London, and I wasn't disappointed! We ordered a chocolate ice cream, a caramel ice cream with bee pollen honeycomb and a hot chocolate with marshmallow fluff. Everything was delicious but the caramel ice cream in particular was outstanding. The... More

First time I visited here, waited in a queue outside not for to long, filled with excitement I was choosing from the small menu on the window and slowly creeping my eyes from outside to the menu inside. Okay so I'm in, this is fantastic and now what to choose plain old sally, I chosen brown-wich ... what I loved... More

Happened to walk around the area and chanced upon this small yet cozy cafe. We tried The Warmie and a cup of hot chocolate! Really one of the best hot chocolates I've had! Do try!

Visited here purely by chance. Had decided to visit Camden Market when we came across this place!!! The first proper parlour to make ice cream with liquid nitrogen. I decided to get the hot chocolate with marshmallow foam that is blow torched. Family had the ice cream and enjoyed it. Yes it's expensive but it's London prices. No more than... More

You go here for the ice cream. It is amazing and you can watch the nitrogen being poured over the ice cream - very surreal, and the result is probably the best ice cream I have ever had (and I've eaten loads). However - the brownies you can get with the ice cream are ordinary (but not bad), the hot... More

£4.45 for one scope of ice cream and one topping not the best value ever. That said the burnt caramel ice cream was simply stunning and probably the nicest ice cream I have ever had. Not an everyday purchase but one for a treat
