Fun but could hav emore flavour choices

Creamier than normal ice cream, I really liked the brownies in the brownich and my young friend's daughter lover her vanilla icecream with rapsberyr sauce. The dark 80% chocolate is extremely bitter so perfect if that' s your type of things.

Great service and a cooling sanctuary in the bustle of Camden Lock Market. There was a queue but lots of staff so it moved quickly and we were fortunate to get a table inside. A fun place to take the kids.

I have to say the service was good and the ice cream tasted great. However a few bites into my ice-cream there was a hair lodged between my pineapple scoop. I have read so many positive reviews about this place. But to fail on basic hygiene is frustrating. No members of staff seemed to be wearing gloves or hair nets... More

I went here last weekend - I had The Warmie and my friend had The Brown-wich.... The ice cream is unbelievably creamy and the brownies are soft, warm and gooey. So so so good! Really quirky place and they use liquid nitrogen so it really feels like you're in a laboratory! Loved it so we went back for coffees later.... More

The ice cream was good, but not so special as I would have hoped for. It was also quite expensive: almost 5 pounds for one big scoop.

We are habitual of Camdem and for the first time I notice the place. They prepare ice cream use the nitro method that allow to produce a better quality ice cream, if the ingredients are extremely fresh and natural. We have 2 rounds of ice cream first the cherry-pistachio-meringue, peach-nuts-Stilton blue chees, and the vanilla with honey crumb. It is... More

This is a cool place as it contains two of my favorite things: Unique technology and amazing ice cream! Once you order one of the great flavors you will notice they prepare the ice cream using liquid nitrogen. Their theme as their name states is a lab so you will be able to see the different toppings they offer in... More
