Nothing quite beats a mountain of ice cream covered with sprinkles and buttercream as far as the eye can see. That’s right; we’re exploring London’s most decadent and outrageous dessert shops. Get your stretchy pants and dessert spoons at the ready, because this list is serious business.
Is there anything better in life than desserts and cocktails? We think not, and the people at Basement State certainly don’t think so, either. So, naturally, they have found the ultimate way to combine the two. That’s right; London’s best-kept secret is a dessert bar in Soho (who’d have thought it?) devoted to perfecting the combination of indulgent puddings and vibrant cocktails, served with a mixture of elegance and class. Their dessert options are a foodie’s dream, with the modern presentation every bit as impressive as the flavours within. Leave the kids at home; this sweet spot is just for the adults.
If you’re a lover of all things dark and a little gothic, then Soft Serve Society’s black ice cream could be for you! If you’re not into black ice cream, then don’t worry – there’s plenty of candy floss and Instagram-worthy desserts to be had here. They also offer ‘freakshakes’ that put all others to shame, but be warned: they stop serving these half an hour before closing to ensure you have enough time to get your sugar rush.
