Snowflake Gelato has a total of six locations in London, ranging from the city’s luxury department store Selfridges to Soho, South Kensington and Westfield. The gelato is handmade with 100% natural ingredients, and uses organic Jersey milk and cream from Somerset, and all sorbet is made with seasonal fresh fruit. In addition, lactose and gluten-free choices are available as well.

Nonna’s Gelato


Inspired by her grandma, Sophia opened Nonna’s Gelato, where she produces gelato that is an “Italian/British fusion” that combines the traditional gelato process with produce from both the UK and Italy. All batches are churned and made by hand, with a “whole heap of amore.” 10p of all scoops sold also go to charity which means the ice cream not only tastes good, but does good, too.

Chin Chin Ice Cream

With three locations in Soho, Camden and Shoreditch, Chin Chin Ice Cream has become a favorite among Londoners and tourists alike. Their ice cream creations range from delicious sundaes to cakes, and come in a wide variety of colors and flavors. Some unique flavors include pandan leaf, yuzu piña colada and honeycomb, and seasonal flavors are also available.

Soft serve served in cones with cotton candy may sound too good to be true, but Milk Train Cafe has perfected the sweet treat. Their sundaes are served on a cloud-like structure of cotton candy, and decorated with colorful sprinkles, popcorn and everything in-between to create the ultimate instagrammable cone. Located in Covent Garden, the ice cream shop is a must-see if you’re passing through London.

Soft Serve Society


With two locations in Shoreditch and Victoria, Soft Serve Society is the best place to visit if you’re looking for a sweet dessert on a hot day. Ranging from matcha flavored options to affogato creations, Soft Serve Society is truly taking ice cream to a new level. If soft serve isn’t for you, mouthwatering milkshakes are also available, and they’re equally as tasty.

Oddonos


With seven locations across London, Oddonos has become a favorite. The artisan gelato is produced in the store’s South Kensington laboratory on a daily basis, using in-house recipes from scratch.
