The takeaway counter in Hackney’s Netil Market is sparse—bar the human-sized 99 Flake on wheels—but it’s serious about ice cream. There’s always only one soft serve flavour at Soft n Swirly. But we guarantee it’ll deliver. We pitch up here every time it's more than 15 degrees, after all. One week might bring lemon and basil sorbet with crushed pistachios, another might bring clotted cream with pineapple sauce, and another Uji matcha with toasted buckwheat sprinkles. Whatever you get, the soft serve is smooth and incredibly flavourful. There are also scoops available but the soft stuff is where it’s at.
