Best Gelato in London

Favorite places for this frozen treat

With England's proximity to Italy, it is no surprise that London boasts a large number of artisan gelaterias. Here are some of my favorites:

Gelateria 3Bis While wandering by Borough Market after it had closed, a bright green sign with the words Gelateria 3BIS caught my eye. It turns out this location is the only one other than two locations in Italy. Popular flavors include Italy-inspired mascarpone and fig, panna cotta and summertime favorite eton mess. They are doing something right - a second location is set to open in Nottinghill. 2073 781977
Borough Market, 4 Park Street, London SE1 9AB

Gelupo  This gelateria and delicatessen has received rave reviews in many publications and was named the top thing to do in London. Not only are there over 20 creative flavors made fresh daily (ricotta, chocolate and black pepper and vanilla and saffron), their gelato has less fat than regular gelato. What?! Apparently, by churning the gelato slowly, as it freezes, the end product is lower fat, denser and heavier. Never mind the science, have an extra spoonful without the guilt!

La Gelatiera (Multiple)  A small, artisan gelateria conveniently located in Covent Garden has the most interesting array of gelato and sorbet flavors. Many are Good Taste award winners. With so many to choose from it is nice they offer two to three generous scoops in a cup. Being a chocolate fan, I couldn't resist Dark Chocolate Sorbet, Dark Chocolate with chili peppers and Dark Chocolate with cherries. You might also try the three star winners, Salted Caramel & Honey and Rosemary with orange zest. 

Snowflake (Multiple) — Winners of 25 Great Taste gold stars, the largest gelato bar in London has as its motto 'serving happiness'. They have 50+ flavors of Italian gelato and sorbets all made daily depending on what is available and freshest. Even gluten-, dairy- and sugar-free versions of some of their flavors are available.
