This sister branch of Snowflake Gelato Bayswater certainly knows a thing or two about gelato - they've won awards for the stuff they make by hand, right here on Wardour Street. Sorbettos and granitas are also on offer, as well as guilt-free creations with no fat, dairy, gluten or added sugar. 

Flavours range from apple, peach, pomegranate and pear to biscotto, fior di latte, white chocolate, honeycomb crunch and sea salted caramel. And if you want more than just a scoop or two? There are waffles, crêpes, fancy coffees, teas, juices, smoothies and snowdrifts - poshed-up sundaes that really look the part. 

There are also monthly masterclasses. The two-hour sessions cover gelato basics (such as, crucially, how it differs from ice cream) as well as letting attendees loose on the Snowflake fridge to choose fresh fruits and flavours for their own sorbetto mix. The class finishes with the chance to try any of the gelateria's 30 flavours, and graduates can take their own handmade flavours home.

Snowflake is definitely my favourite place in town to go to for gelato. They've got a huge range of ice creams and sorbets that'll satisfy any craving you're having! Before finding out I was lactose intolerant, my favourite flavours were their dark chocolate and hazelnut. I especially liked to mix these two flavours together because the resulting taste would resemble Nutella - a simple yet amazing combination. 


I like that they also cater for people with allergies and intolerances, with sorbet flavours and dairy-free options. I think the most unique sorbet flavour I've tried here is papaya. It was really refreshing, as most sorbets tend to be and it was not too sweet either. I could tell that it was papaya but the taste was not overpowering. It was also a lovely orange colour! As for their dairy-free flavours, my favourite is the dark chocolate. It's amazing how much it tastes like gelato, you honestly wouldn't even know it was dairy-free unless someone told you! It maintains the deep and rich flavour of dark chocolate and it's still pretty creamy in texture - a winner in my eyes! 


I normally get my scoop in a cone, because I find it more fun to eat it this way. I'm also a fan of their waffle cone because it stays crispy until the end and has a good crunch to it.

Been coming here for ages!!! What better than to come with a friend for a Sunday evening treat. What's great apart from the delicious ice cream is that they let you try it before you buy, so you can really pick the flavour for you. There are ice creams and sorbets depending on what you fancy. And you can choose a cone or bowl of various sizes. My advice if you think you'll go regularly, get a loyalty card and you'll eventually go enough times for a free ice cream!!

Love this place – creamy gelato and some great flavours – two huge scoops for £4.50 might sound a bit too much, but it's well worth it. Peanut Butter doubled up with Salted Caramel on my last visit was a winner! Go, go, go!

I often pop in here on a week night after dinner with friends. It's a good place to finish an evening. Fantastic ice cream plus an extensive dessert menu if you wish to dine in. Can get a bit busy and hectic but staff deal with the masses well. Definitely worth a visit if you are looking for an alternative night cap and you have overstayed table turnaround time at a restaurant but feel your night is not over yet. Will return again and again.

Melt in the mouth sorbet and the creamiest, yummiest gelato. Everything is homemade and to the highest standards, it really does come across in the taste. They also have waffles, crepes and other goodies that I havent yet had the pleasure of trying but will certainly back for more very soon! :)

My first taste of ice-cream this year, and everyone already has some work to do as this place does things on another level.


I tried the Hazelnut, Toffee Popcorn and the pick of the bunch, Blood Orange Sorbet. The sorbet was so light and really flavoursome, I went back for seconds and thirds.


When the weather finally turns nice, I'll definitely be heading over again
