The team who run Bocca Di Lupo are also behind this excellent ice cream shop in Soho, which means you know it’s going to be good. But the gelato you can get from this spot is not just good, it’s incredible - and don’t hold back on ordering half-litre tubs of flavours like honeycomb, malted milk stracciatella, and tiramisu, because they won’t last long.
Much like algebra, quantum physics, and Kevin Federline’s wrestling career, we don’t entirely understand Chin Chin Labs. More specifically, we don’t know how they make their ice cream. We do know that it involves nitrogen, and, you know, science. However they do it, it’s excellent. It’s super smooth and although they don’t have your classic flavours like vanilla or strawberry, their online shop has plenty of interesting options from psychedelic purple carrot cake to burnt butter caramel, as well as whole ice cream pies.
Happy Endings Ice Cream And Desserts
Delivering across London
If you learn anything from the past year, let it be that you will never regret pre-ordering a sweet treat. Even if it’s two weeks in advance, even if you’re not sure ordering a 6-inch cake for two people is a smart idea (it’s not), and even - no, especially - when ordering a malted milk ice cream sandwich while it’s still feeling pretty grey outside. The ice cream sandwiches at Happy Endings are perfect for just that, they’ve got flavours like milk ice cream sandwiched between two chocolate-chip cookies, a bourbon biscuit sandwich filled with malt parfait and salty chocolate crumbs ice cream, as well as more exciting flavour combinations. And they’re delivering within a three-mile radius of E14 daily, as well as across London on Saturdays. And who in their right mind would regret gifting themselves a peanut butter cherry ice cream sandwich?
Oddono’s is the girl next door of ice cream shops. Unpretentious, charming, and everybody loves it. And they serve the kind of gelato you try once, and end up craving once a week for the rest of time. The sorbets are good, particularly the mango, but the gelato is where it’s at. Basically, if you don’t try the hazelnut or cookies and cream, then you’re doing it wrong. With branches in Stoke Newington, South Kensington, Battersea, Hampstead, East Dulwich, Chiswick, and Wimbledon, you can get tubs of the good stuff delivered straight to your door.
We don’t know a word that starts with unico that doesn’t bring a smile to our face. Unicorns, unico...rn cakes, you get it. And it’s no different with this Italian caffe. With locations in St John’s Wood, Fulham, and Bromley, you can get some of the creamiest gelato in London delivered. You shouldn’t miss the classics like pistachio and hazelnut, but you should also keep an eye on their gourmet flavours like panna cotta, and rum chocolate.

It’s your classic love story. Cream meets a freezer, they have beautiful gelato babies. The rest, as they say, is history. That’s what Shakespeare was on about, right? This artisan gelateria in Stoke Newington serves some wonderfully creamy gelato. There are plenty of options like white chocolate, hazelnut, and ricotta with caramelised figs, but if the biscokrok is on you shouldn’t hesitate to get it. Plus, the black cherry praline is some of the best vegan gelato we’ve tried. They’re delivering tubs of different sizes, from 500g to a whole kilo, and you can choose up to four flavours.
This Crouch End gelato spot might not win any prizes for having an imaginative name, but that should absolutely not stop you from trying their exceptional gelato. All of their branches (they’re also in Covent Garden and Stratford’s East Village make a seasonal selection of small-batch gelato which they produce daily. Flavours like honey, rosemary, and orange zests, and basil and chilli will knock your standard go-to mint choc chip clean out of the water, and their white chocolate and pistachio is a thing of local legend. They also do a great line in vegan sorbet, and you shouldn’t snooze on the Alphonso mango if it’s on. All of which you can get delivered on demand.
