...Places for Sweet Treats

Date: 30.07.10 Category:

“We all deserve a treat every once in a while. Here’s my pick of the sweetest.”

Gelupo is a traditional gelateria, delicatessen and espresso bar, from the team behind Bocca di Lupo. When in the West End there is nowhere better for your frozen fix. But if Portobello Road is your stomping ground, Dri Dri is the place for a homemade gelato or sorbet. For a unique ‘instant-freeze’ ice-cream, head to Camden for your indulgent treat at Chin Chin, or William Curley Dessert Bar and Café in Belgravia where you can choose from a huge range of chocolates, cakes, ice creams and more.

My current craze is fat-free frozen yogurt – who would have thought something so delicious could be so low in calories? Head to Frae (in Notting Hill or Islington) or Yu Foria in Covent Garden: you’ll be doing yourself a disservice if you don’t.

Or if you feel someone is more deserving than you, send them chocolate dipped strawberries from Berry Scumptious or choose from a range of sweet mailable gifts from doughdough.com.
