Homely, friendly and excellent quality. The coffee is so smooth, it goes down almost too quickly. Ice cream comes in amazing flavours. Rosemary & honey, sour cherry & merangue, panetone, chilli & lime. Each ice cream offers an amazing burst of creamy flavour. The seating / tables are rustic (a few cushions would be nice) but it adds to the experience. Will definitely be goin

I can't believe I am eating ice cream in an English winter but for this place I will make an exception. It is definitely the best ice cream I have ever tasted and with an outside temperature near freezing you can savour every mouthful without having to rush before it melts

This place is fabulous - high quality ice cream, adventurous flavour combinations that work, and friendly staff. The salted caramel is the best I've ever tasted, and the specials are worth a taste - I recently had rosemary, orange and honey- divine!
With an incredible location between Covent Garden and Leicester Square, and is certainly worth a visit!

Just stumbled upon this tiny cafe on the way to the theatre with the intention of having a coffee, and then discovered the ice creams. The variety of flavours are amazing; I'm not going to spoil it by naming some as they frequently change; the owner is always experimenting. Some of the flavours you would attribute to savoury dishes, so it was quite exciting to find them in ice cream. Always great to find something a little bit different, even on a cold winter night.

This place, by far, has the best ice cream I've ever tasted in London. Its the real Italian home made deal. Very interesting and unusual flavours included, such as fig and caramelized cashew nut, elderflower and also amaretto among my favourite flavours. Amazing, am a regular and visit almost every time I'm in Covent Garden.
