They already have some of the best doughnuts in town, now Crosstown is getting into the ice cream business. Three of their shops (Shoreditch, Canary Wharf, Greenwich) will be launching ice cream scoop bars, either in cones. cups or tubs to take home. Many of the other stores will have mini tubs ready to grab and go (and there will be delivery too, of course).
The flavours sound pretty great:
We've seen plenty of ice cream sent by Deliveroo or UberEats, knowing that a tub can take a 20-minute trip without melting. But we definitely didn't think it was possible to put a tub of ice cream in the post. But now Chin Chin are here to prove us wrong.
They'll be using their liquid nitrogen to freeze the ice cream, which means that it can stay cold for up to 32 hours, more than enough time to make it the
Popular West London ice-cream sellers Bears Parlour is opening its second outlet this weekend - a kiosk on Brook Green.

This time it's the launch of Crème on D’Arblay Street, which is all about giant cookies, soft-serve ice cream, ice-blended slushies and more. It comes from Chef Jeremy Coste who is also behind North Audley Cantine, where he's been testing his cookie prowess with crunchy frosties
At this time of the year, ice-cream pop-ups are ten a penny in London, but we have to say The House of Ice Cream that opens today in Farringdon has got our attention. The two week pop-up by Fuller's Kitchen, next to The Conductor pub, has been timed to launch ahead of National Ice-cream Day and will be serving up ice cream with a side of chips, chicken and hot sauce.
Choose from two mains - ice cream and fries or with fried chicken, desserts consist of
You've got to hand it those Italians - not only do they know how to make cracking gelato, but they're also a dab hand at planning the perfect opening for their latest shop in London.
With the coming days in London set to scorchio, the Florentine company will be throwing open the doors to their new ice-cream parlour on the Fulham Road. Even better, this new branch will have a lovely garden out the back. So alfresco meets gelato just as the British summer comes
As the weather takes a turn for the better again (looks out the window - not yet) this new mash-up at Selfridges may be just the thing. Popping up at the Snowflake gelato shop for a few weeks is a mash-up between Blondies Kitchen and Snowflake Gelato - an ice cream and cookie pop-up.

From today, London is getting a new cereal bar - but this is no Cereal Killer. This much more high-end approach is linking in with the launch of NYC's top fashion brand Kith, who have opened a store inside the Selfridges menswear department.
