Time Out says

4 out of 5 stars

An ice cream parlour in Whitechapel, popular with local families and students alike.

Ideally located for a cheeky pudding after curry at Tayyabs, Dessert Island wouldn’t be a bad place to find yourself stranded. Vanilla bourbon and chocolate chilli are neat takes on classic cones, and the ice cream list stretches to the exotic (mango and lychee sorbets) and the decadent: Rocher ice cream is studded with actual Ferreros – ambassador, you are spoiling us. There are also sundaes, shakes, cakes, waffles and macaroons. Prices are decent, it’s open till midnight, and you can even borrow board games from behind the counter. It’s no wonder Dessert Island is popular with local families and students alike.
