One of the things I love about London is that there’s always something new and cool to explore. And what’s better to explore than cool dessert places? Nothing. 😍
Here are a few cool desserts to check out while in London:
Macaroons are one of my fave desserts. Add some cool ice cream flavours and toppings and it sounds like a dessert made in heaven.
The Knot Churros
The Knot Churros is a fun twist on the traditional Spanish churros that we all know and love. You can get your churros with soft-serve ice cream, colourful sprinkles and candy floss.
Yaki Yaki is a twist on taiyaki, which is a traditional Japenese fish-shaped cake.
Yaki Yaki sell a range of different taiyaki goodies (both sweet and savoury), but they are best known for their ice cream taiyaki. This comes in a taiyaki cone and you can choose from vanilla bean, matcha, ube (purple yam) and coconut flavoured soft-serve ice cream.
If you are a huge cheesecake fan, then Whipped needs to be on your list!
Whipped is a new dessert concept with a very unique range of baked, chilled and frozen “whipped” cheesecakes.
Ice cream and candy floss anyone? Certainly, a very unique and delicious way to serve ice cream!
Soft Serve Society
Soft Serve Society is a fun soft-serve dessert bar with loads of cool flavours and toppings. They also do mini freakshakes.
Chin Chin Labs
Chin Chin Labs is Europes first liquid nitrogen ice cream parlour.
They have been described as the future of ice cream and it’s not hard to see why. They don’t have “labs” in their name for nothing, their desserts are like a fun science experiment.
Rolled ice cream originated in Thailand. It’s a different and fun way to switch things up when you want an ice cream. And being able to watch the process of getting your ice cream rolled, really makes the whole experience.

Mamasons is Europe’s first Filipino ice cream parlour. Their ice cream flavours are both colourful, fun and delicious – yes I’m speaking from experience here 😍

Wheelcakes are a traditional Taiwanese pancake with a creamy filling. The fillings include akzuri (red bean), matcha, vanilla custard and a mix of vanilla custard and chocolate.
Where my cookie dough fans at?
Naked dough makes edible cookie dough (with no eggs!) and loads of cool toppings.
Egg waffles originated in Hong Kong and Bubblewrap has brought this fun and delicious dessert to China Town in London.
You can completely customise your own bubblewrap, choosing your base, gelato, toppings and sauce.
Maître Choux is a modern French patisserie with a three Michelin star chef who bakes beautiful and unique eclairs, choux and chouquettes.
Just a little warning! Although the eclairs are beautiful and delicious, they are quite small considering the price.

And although the watermelon soft serve is a bit on the pricey side (£6.50 to take away and £7.80 to eat in), it is so so good!
