Soft Swerve Ice Cream, New York

Soft Swerve Ice Cream, New York

The purple Ube-flavoure ice-cream from Soft Swerve was absolutely magical. Purple yam might not sound the most enticing flavour on paper. However, once you’ve taken a lick of these artfully decorated cones, you’ll be convinced.

Chin Chin Dessert Club, Soho, London

Chin Chin Dessert Club, Soho, London

The Willy Wonka of the London dessert scene, Chin Chin exploded at Camden Market (not literally). Now they’ve since opened another store right on Greek Street in Soho. This was dangerously close to my office. I ended up doing a cheeky dessert run on a […]

Cacao, Nové Město, Prague

Cacao, Nové Město, Prague

The busiest place on any hot day (and there’s a lot of hot days here in Prague) is always the ice-cream parlour. Cacao in Nové Město seems to be one of the pre-eminent ones in this city. I learnt a lesson on this day. When a menu items states XL, they are not kidding. I ordered the Peru XL for 135 CZK. This features chocolate and vanilla ice-cream, chocolate cream, biscuits, roasted almonds, oh, and more cream. This was enough dessert for an army or calories for a week.

Angelato, Staré Město, Prague

Angelato, Staré Město, Prague

If you need a sweet treat on a hot Prague day, Angelato is the place to be. The crowd was of the same mind too, with a minor queue before you get your mitts on to some top quality gelato. The flavours are quite funky, […]

Four Winters, Soho, London

Four Winters, Soho, London

Sick of summer? Well, you can find an icy treat all year round at Four Winters. These guys “freeze the seasons” and have three stores here in London and a few in the Middle East. I can only imagine how well received a place like […]

Gelupo, Soho, London

Gelupo, Soho, London

I have a new favourite gelato place in London. And I’m not the only fan. One of the busiest gelaterias in central London is Gelupo. Gelupo has only one store, and that’s in Soho. That is already a good sign. So why do I love this place?

Nüetnigenough, Brussels

Nüetnigenough, Brussels

The fantastically named Nüetnigenough literally translates to “the one who has never, never ever enough”.  Gluttons, perfectionists and womanisers. I’d definitely put my hand up as two of those things (not the latter, cough). But, in fact – I did have enough on my most dining […]

Fitzbillies, Cambridge

Fitzbillies, Cambridge

Our afternoon punting was delayed – disaster! We found ourselves chilling out (both figuratively and literally) at the sugar stop that’s known as Fitzbillies. Cambridge was a scorcher on our day out here, and it was a nice hanging out spot even if only for […]

Cupcake Corner, Śródmieście Północne, Warsaw

Cupcake Corner, Śródmieście Północne, Warsaw

Cupcake Corner is a specialist bakery chain here in Poland. There’s four stores and I hit up the Warsaw one. I wasn’t full from my earlier lunch and a sweet treat for the afternoon sounded perfect and poetic. Let’s see how the Poles fare. The ice-cream at Cupcake Corner looked fantastic, but at these prices I had to go for a full blown plated dessert. Why not, right?
