Time Out says

A high-quality ice cream place in Islington.

Given that it’s a cone’s throw from the Almeida theatre, it’s no surprise that Udderlicious gets busy when the curtain comes down. This is one of the cutest and most colourful ice-cream parlours in town, a riot of bunting and pompoms, plus a swing seat for those who want to relive those childhood fantasies. Staff couldn’t be jollier, and the range of 20-plus flavours is second to none – raspberry cheesecake, peanut butter, chocolate honeycomb, and even avocado with stracciatella. Customers are also encouraged to suggest a ‘Flavour of the Month’, and the resulting winner is rewarded with a free scoop every day for four weeks.

Love Love Love!!! 


Great little ice cream joint, they produce a new flavour every month, always have a good selection of choices too. I love all their flavours. During the summer, I would go every week, so that would be my treat for the week.


Now that winter is here, i will try and go if i can, their milkshakes are also super delish! 

Bit pricey, but defo worth it too!

So disappointed at this place, super slow service and the ice-cream was so average. I had chocolate and it was hard and partly frozen, the colour of cardboard and so full of sugar. 

Maybe I went there on the wrong day because everyone else seems to love it. Will try again.

Great icecream parlour shop. Love the whole style of the place with its quirky plaques on the wall. The icecream is great and creamy. I had mine served on a warm salted caramel brownie just yummy. The staff are also very friendly so makes this place a lovely place to pop into to chill and have a icecream. Love the swinging chair you can sit on.

I for one am a MASSIVE ice cream fan. I go out of my way to try ice cream but I always try to have my absolute favourite which is Salted Caramel so I can compare a good ice cream parlour. 

I came back from Spain just 3 days before my visit and on a Sunny afternoon I was walking aimlessly around London and stumbled across this little delight. Yes there was a queue but it only took 10 minutes to go down and it is absolutely worth it. 

Inside the shop is cute and quaint and lists the flavours on offer and also the famous flavour of the month.

I opted for two flavours - Banana Caramel and Salted Caramel. Both as delightful as each other. I would say the Salted Caramel is in my top 5 of all time! A hard feature to achieve. 

I went for a half and half scoop so it was only £2.95 and boy was it yummy. See my delightful picture 


I happened to stumble upon Udderlicious one rainy night recently when I had about an hour to kill. Not much was open at that time besides pubs, and I just wanted to sit in a nice little café somewhere. 


I've actually never been to ice cream parlor that's open until 11pm on a school night before. Usually, you'd think ice cream was exclusive to hot sunny days or crying over a heartbreak to your good pals Ben and Jerry. Nope. Popping into an ice cream parlor on a late-night whim is such an underrated novelty, and this place in particular has such a great vibe to it.

It's a small shop with adorably twee interiors and a gallery of past and present flavours of the month hanging from the wall. The one thing that I particularly loved about Udderlicious was that the flavours for each month are democratically voted in by it's customers and fans. There's a pretty inspired selection of scoops to choose from, including avocado stracciatella, jam doughnut, chocolate marmite and peach prosecco sorbet! What's more is that you can even suggest your own wild flavours.

In case you're wondering, I went with two scoops: Nutella and Chocolate peanut butter (dreamy stuff!)

You know those ‘what if’ questions that foodies always ask each other? What’s your desert island food? What would your last meal be? If someone gave you a fiver what food would it make you happy to spend it on? BTW, I know you’re now totally pondering the answers to those questions…


Well the answer to all three of those questions for me always involves ice-cream. Doesn’t matter if it’s blazing sunshine and I’m sat al fresco with my bare toes curling around thick, velvety grass or it’s howling storms and I’m sat on a radiator wearing everything I own – ice-cream is the answer and I’m so thankful that there’s a place on my own doorstep where the people love ice-cream every bit as much as I do; it’s called Udderlicious, it’s on the gastronomic dream that is Angel’s Upper St and with summer on the near horizon, you are going to be so glad I told you about it!


Run by a lovely & incredibly hard working couple who gave up their former jobs to open this place, it’s totally gorgeous to look at, sincerely the stuff of Pinstagrammable dreams. Tin jugs of bright blooms in the window, candy coloured pom poms twirling from the ceiling, a porch swing inside the shop, wooden benches out front and gorgeous illustrations on the walls will have you ‘oohing before you even get to the good stuff – the ice-cream.


Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhh it’s so good! I’m actually a bit jealous of those of you yet to try it…creamy and packed full of flavour, it’ll put every supermarket tub and Mr. Whippy purchase well and truly in the shade as far as quality is concerned. Handmade in small batches, generously laced with chunks & nuggets & all manner of lovely things and with a rainbow of flavours on rotation, I genuinely have the hardest time picking out what I want scooped and scattered with sprinkles.


Today, in the warm spring sunshine, Chocolate Peanut Butter & Chocolate Coconut were a dream combination while my fellow ice-cream lover sincerely approved of April’s Flavour of the Month (created by customers and celebrated in-store with a chalkboard framed photo!) the Bourbon Sour Sorbet and the accompanying Chocolate Espresso Biscotti. If you’re a fan of tradition, Madagascan Vanilla will see you right, if you like things a little crazier, I guarantee you’ll adore Avocado & Straciatella and for the fruit lovers among you, Banana Caramel and Wild Cherry taste of sweet, ripe fruit and not sweet, ripe fruit flavouring.


Staff are friendly and generous with tasting samples and while it’s not cheap – around £5 for two scoops + sprinkles - it’s cross-my-heart-and-hope-to-die worth it for a cone of something so delicious you may find yourself unable to avoid saying ‘oh so THAT’S what ice-cream is supposed to taste like!’ 


I had previously wondered how an ice cream shop can survive in cold, wet and windy London and I have found the answer.... This place has the most delicious ice cream! There is a huge choice of flavours and they will let you try as many as you like before you choose. I went for the coconut chocolate and peanut butter flavours. I sat on the swing seat looking out on a rainy, freezing February evening and I thought to myself - "why have I never been hear before!" Definitely 5 stars!!

I one lucky lady. Udderlicious is right on my door step. So if I need a delicious dessert that’s going to hit the spot I go here.

I’m head over heels for the Dark Chocolate, Sea Salt Sorbet. Sounds like it couldn’t work but don’t knock it till you’ve tried it. It’s amazing.

I’d always recommend the waffle cones they have a superb crunch. The staff are friendly and happy to answer loads of questions on how this addictive stuff is made, whilst letting you sample all the flavours!

After just coming back off holiday, scoffing ice cream every day you'd think I'd be sick of it! Welllll I'm not! Especially after meeting a friend in Angel last night and wandering past this place that I've heard does great ice cream!

It's a cute place, nicely decorated with friendly staff and the ice cream is creammmmmyyyy!
Great choice of flavours and massive scoops although expensive at nearly £3 for one scoop!
Will definitely go back if in the neighbourhood and highly recommend :)!
