This ice cream shop is tucked in behind the Lord Camden Inn and the Garden Footbridge. Unusual local flavors. Definitely worth looking for!

Decent creamees. Tried the choc/van twist. Good creamy texture. Like the option for gf sugar cones. Only thing is the ice creams are pretty darned pricey from what I'm used to. But then again, it is Camden.
