Had the smoothest, and some of the nicest ice cream ever. Not particularly cheap at £4.45 for a scoop but it includes a topping and it's very rich so well worth it. Small selection of flavours but enough to each choose something different. Really recommend a visit if you're nearby!

Went on tuesday afternoon so wasn't ridiculously busy but still had a bit of a queue. The woman taking orders messed up our order and put it through wrong, which is a simple mistake to make.. However the guy making it and the woman who took the order seemed very annoyed about it, rolling their eyes at us and questioning... More

Read about the ice cream here in the Guardian so thought I'd give it a try with my children. The ice cream is gorgeous, but it's only a very small place so there aren't lots of seats, and you might end up taking it away to eat. Piece of advice though - get the hot chocolate. I didn't and really... More

Small place and it's usually crowded, but the ice cream is delicious. I haven't tasted every ice cream in Europe, but at least this is on the same level as the top rated ice cream bars in Italy and Spain are. Quite expensive though, but worth it if you are visiting Camden.

We came here on a cold Saturday morning and asked for something warm. The woman who served us was lovely and recommended the hot chocolate. It had a huge toasted marshmallow on top and it tasted amazing. The man next to us saw ours and ordered it too because it looked so good. The hot chocolate itself was so thick... More

I saw a video on facebook about this place and wanted to check it out. The chocolate with marshmallow is just great! One of the best marshmallows I have ever had. We also had an ice cream which had one of the best textures I have ever tasted. Besides, this place looks like a food lab. The staff is also... More

The hot chocolate was amazing, I was a bit skeptical at first as the portion size was small, but the chocolate is so rich you dont need a lot at all! It was definitely worth the price and the glob of marshmallow on top was amazing !

Okay so I literally love this place. It's amazing! The hot chocolate is to die for. The best ice cream for me is the Burnt Butter Caramel with Honeycombe pieces! Only downfall is the price. It is a little bit above average. But it wouldn't put me off hugely! And its on the doorstep of my fave place ever. CAMDEN... More

My girlfriend raved about this place in Camden where they used nitrogen in the ice creams and created delicious looking cakes,deserts and delicacies abound!! Service was friendly and quick the cafe is small and only has 3 tables, it looks like a willy winks chocolate factory behind the counter. We had a hot chocolate to share, it comes with a... More

I tried it once and it was a good experience but I will not come back. It is funny the way they do the ice creams but it is too expensive to repeat and once you have seen it that's it!
