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.

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!)
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!!
