Udderlicious

An adventurous ice cream parlour in Covent Garden.

Ever felt like you might be the next big thing in ice cream? Then get yourself down to Udderlicious, an independent parlour churning up a storm with a variety of organic ice creams (gelato’s over, dahling), where customers compete to compose a new flavour each month.

A recent champ? Seaweed. It shouldn’t have been good, but it was brilliant. Thick, rich and just a tiny bit salty, there were real pieces of algae in the wonderfully creamy whip. Proof in the pudding that with this, a new branch in Covent Garden, they’ve perfected a winning formula; the cutesy vibe and swing seat have been transplanted direct from the original Islington shop, and the ice cream has only got better.

A highlight was the raspberry cheesecake – sharp and fruity, with rich, crumbly bits of cake rolled in. Equally good was peanut butter and chocolate, factoring whole nuts smothered in swirls of chocolate cream (and a bargainous £2.95 a scoop). With 20-plus flavours on offer, you’re a bit spoilt for choice; luckily, the staff are so lovely they’ll let you taste everything before you buy. And there’s nothing you fancy, then worry not – there’ll be a rejig in no time. Anyone for chocolate and Marmite?

Delicious and imaginative flavours, including unusual vegan ones. The stores are airy and pleasant, with their famous swing seats. However, you're paying more for this level of quality.

I've always been a massively loyal fan of the Islington branch of Udderlicious but now, with the sunshine so brazen and so glorious, I am sharing the loved with its sister site in the more centrally located Covent Garden. 


With a massive queue outside, it was clear that I'm joining a club of already clued up ice-cream lovers. Sadly a couple of the flavours I was already in love with from their description alone were sold out but TBH, that's a first world problem and I didn't have much difficulty in picking replacements. Banana-Nutella and Milk-Hazelnut-Stracciatella were both knockouts and obviously the addition of rainbow sprinkles only made me feel like more of the grown-up that I clearly am.


Staff are friendly, the vibe is cute (don't panic if there's nowhere to sit - go and have fun being a big ole' tourist on the nearby Cambridge Circus steps - and the quality of the ice-cream is unarguably fantastic. Made in-store in small batches, you can literally taste the love the owners have for their jobs and their products and in a world of mass production and chains on every corner, that's worth waiting for.

Not a bad option for ice cream if you're in area. My friend and I came here after dinner in Seven Dials to have a sweet end to our meal. After trying a couple of flavours, I settled for a vegan flavour - for the sake of my stomach, as I'm lactose intolerant, but much against my actual desire. 


I had the Vegan Dark Chocolate & Chili, which was an odd combination for me. I'm not a fan of chili in my dark chocolate but somehow found this as an ice cream flavour to be quite enjoyable. I was sceptical at first because I tried this combination in bar chocolate (Lindt) form and wasn't impressed. But after tasting this, I was sold on it. I had mine as a single scoop on a waffle cone, which was super crunchy even at the end  - it didn't get soggy while I was enjoying my ice cream.

I am a fan of this ice cream parlor. They have great variety of flavors. Yes they may have queue at times but when I visited them they had no queue at all. I had a scoop of the Chocolate and Sea Salt one and sat at the window seat people watching. The ice cream was smooth, flavorsome and good. It is definitely a great place for dessert or a quick treat in the area.

There's always a queue for this place!

They have so many interesting flavour combinations which are written on a cute framed wall behind an indoor swinging seat. The decor is cute.

The first time I went I had the speculos ice cream after falling in love with the biscuits in Belgium. It was slightly disappointing as the creaminess of the ice cream was quite over-powering.

They also have a few sorbet options for a dairy free option.

This little ice-cream is just warming up for Summer and on the first hot day this year - I popped in. There was a little queue and just one person serving so it's not as quick as the chains like Snog or Pinkberry Also, no fro-yo, which is what I was originally hoping for. HOWEVER. This ice cream is absolutely scrumptious and I really enjoyed the flavours on offer. I had the honeycomb and then banana chocolate combinations and was not disappointed. One scoop is probably enough, I was stuffed by two (which are the most enormous scoops). 


Definitely check it out if you're in the area.

I rarely give 5 stars but really, this place effortlessly (seems like it) rounds up a comfortable, cosy, spot for good quality ice cream. They stand out with their sundaes that offer you caramel brownies to go under your choice of ice cream with a topping (the choice is limited but at least its not over whelming). I'm surprised their range of flavours doesn't include the classics, but for an adventurer like myself thats amazing! Their flavours range from matcha, sesame, vodka and raspberry, chocolate and whiskey to coconut and chocolate chunks (which tasted nothing like coconut..). I'll be back!
