Snowflake aims to ‘serve happiness’ through the means of Italian gelato and sorbetto. Flavours come and go (strawberries and cream for Wimbledon fortnight, for example), and there are the likes of waffles, smoothies and concoctions such as banana splits. Whatever you choose, the quality is high – freshly made and with sound ingredients. Rich flavours of praline, and date and honey, were particular highlights, while the white chocolate-based eponymous house speciality is a creamy and vibrant smash.
Sorbettos are equally tempting: the lime flavour was on the brink of overpowering, but the strawberry proved a refreshingly fruity revelation. The bare, space-age decor will either attract or repel, depending on your preferences, but the ice-cream has universal appeal.
