LONDON CITY GUIDE: EAT SEE PLAY SHOP

Ruby Violet, handmade organic ice cream


kids eating Ruby Violet ice creams

A new ice cream parlour has opened up (in my neighbourhood! hooray!), and the ice cream really is the best in town. Ruby Violet is located on an up and coming street in Tufnell Park (next door to eenymeeny and a whole host of cute new cafes and shops). This charming little ice cream shop, with its tiled floors and thoughtful decor, will win you over immediately. The ice cream and sorbets are all handmade on site using the finest natural and local ingredients. You’ll find such interesting flavours like Regent’s Park Honey, Cardamon and Lemon, Flintham Damson with Sour Cream, Liquorice with Blackcurrant Ripple, etc, and the flavours are so fresh and recognisable. You can also buy tubs of their ice cream to take away, and they also make ice cream cakes and other desserts for parties and events.  They’re open every day from 11-7, sunshine or no sunshine.

UPDATE: There is now a new location in the King’s Cross complex, not far from the fun fountains!

Two years ago our Christmas got canceled on Christmas Eve -- well the trip we had planned to Switzerland did anyway. It was our first Christmas with a child and you know how important they are! We were devastated. I think the only thing that saved us was Melrose & Morgan, our local deli in ...

Gallery 196
June 11, 2016
With its entrance tucked around the corner from the main shopping street in Primrose Hill, this charming shop can almost be mistaken for one of the many pretty homes lining the street - or be overlooked entirely if you're not careful. And yet, it's one of my very favourite shops in the neighbourhood and worth a visit ...
