Share This Article:

A truly comprehensive guide of every dessert in London could probably wrap around the city itself. Instead, here is a selection of some of the quirkiest and most delicious sugary delicacies that are a must on your next trip to the capital.

1. Naked Dough

Following the cookie dough trend that skyrocketed in the US, Naked Dough is the UK’s first cookie dough café which, in its few years of existence, has taken London by storm. Head to one of their quirky cafes in Westfield, Shoreditch or Oxford Circus to get an indulgent scoop of cookie dough in flavours ranging from ‘Unicorn Food’ to ‘Emoji Poos’.

2. Chin Chin Labs 

Since 2010, Chin Chin labs has been pushing the boundaries of frozen indulgence by making ice cream with liquid nitrogen. Located in Camden and Soho, all their ice cream is organic and made in-shop. Go simple with a scoop of the good stuff or try concoctions like the Sticky Toffee Sundae or toasted Marshmallow hot chocolate.

3. Lola’s Cupcakes

Wherever you are in London, you won’t be far from one of Lola’s cupcake stands or stores. Their delicious cupcakes are as beautiful as they are delicious - the perfect pick me up during a long day wandering around the city. Lola’s are famous for their red velvet cakes, but with decadent flavours like black forest and sherbet fizz, you’ll be spoiled for choice. Bonus: they sell an array of Vegan and wheat free cupcakes too. 

4. Crosstown Doughnuts

Crosstown takes spherical confectionary to a whole new level with their divine sourdough doughnuts. Their sleek aesthetic and inventive flavours, ranging from Blood Orange & Pistachio to Mississippi Mud Pie, are making their sugary mark on the city. Head to one of their locations in Soho, Camden, Shoreditch or Picadilly, to pick up a box…or two.

5. Soft Serve Society

Located in the Boxpark in Shoreditch, this petite dessert bar packs a big punch with elaborate soft serve creations and freak shakes that will be the highlight of your week. Try their charcoal soft serve with copious toppings of candy floss and popping candy or a peanut butter shake with roasted marshmallow and popcorn.  

6. Yolkin

Becoming one of the most respected dessert makers in London, Yolkin’s giant macaron ice cream sandwiches are a wonder to behold. They are closed until spring this year, so keep an eye out on their social media channels for when you can grab one of these masterful treats at their different pop-up locations. Don’t dawdle, they sell out fast!

7. Cereal Killer

Last but by no means least, the Cereal Killer Café is an iconic sweet tooth’s haunt. Take a seat among the retro interiors in Shoreditch and choose your perfect cereal concoction from up to 100 different varieties of cereal brands, 12 kinds of milk and 20 toppings for a sugary kick like no other. A trip to London wouldn't be complete without it.
