Gelupo

I’ve got a short ‘n’ sweet little recommendation for you today!

If you haven’t already, you have to check out Gelupo.

If you have already, you need to go back.

Autumn is no excuse not to tuck into London’s finest gelato. Lemme give you the scoop.

Right in the bustle of Soho, you’ll find a little Italian ice cream parlour.

There’s coffee, there are biscuits and cakes, the fridges heave with Italian goodies.

But the real treats are hidden in the freezers.

The menu is short and to the point.

The classics, followed by the ever-changing specials.

Pick your flavours, choose your vessel & the charming girls will scoop it out for you (and pile it up high!).

Pop a wafter in the top and get ready for a flavour explosion you wont soon forget.

Just don’t let it melt!

My flavours are Snickers & raspberry, but the ricotta & black pepper one is a real winner too.

You might need to make more than one trip, y’know just to find your favourites.

Of course if you go with someone else, you can just get them to take a photo… you’ll have to hold their ice cream too.

Then you can Snicker lick of theirs.

Just remember to take your umbrella, there’s a chance of sprinkles.

    When I was in London in August, we turned a corner and found Gelupo and I begged my boyfriend to let us go in but we needed to be somewhere else at the time. He promised we’d go after but did we? NO. I know, criminal isn’t it?! The Snickers flavour caught my eye too. I reckon bitter chocolate and blood orange might be a good combination too…. There’s a place in Bath, where I live, called the real Italian Ice Cream Company which is actually gelato and they do incredible flavours too. If you catch them when they make their Maltesers, Peanuts or Raspberry Meringue flavours then you’re in for a treat!

    I really do like this outfit! I know this is total annoying random person trying to comment on personal things… but I really want to see your hair a little shorter! I had SUCH hair envy last year. That cut really framed your face.. this one, while still lovely, makes me think the hair is kind of wearing you.

  • Madison Bailee

    man now im dying for some of that!! i swear i could taste it as i was scrolling through the photos ;D

  • Gelato is my favorite ice cream alternative! Plus the weather is still warm enough to enjoy a nice frozen treat without freezing your fingertips off. The snickers and raspberry combo sounds diviinnnne! Wishing I was in London to give it a try!

    Hi Rosie,

    I just stumbled on your blog and I love your down to earth nature. I was reading your post on how to start a blog and you mentioned that you were almost completely deaf as a child. I was surprised I didn’t see anyone ask you about this in the comments, that I saw. So, I was just curious on how you restored your hearing and if you still have any issues with it today. I am currently living with severe hearing loss and I, too, have my head in books. Glad to see that you made it out of the corner!

  • Well, when it comes to ice-cream, I am really fussy, it needs to be really authentic, otherwise I stick to sorbets and frozen yoghurt, which aren’t as rich – but that looks really good – really authentic and good!
    More motivation to come back to London next year!
    Down in Cape Town, the weather is doing the opposite of London and the sun is starting to shine stronger and for longer, therefore you have inspired me to rush and check out Cape Town’s little gems of authentic ice-cream – even if the weather still requires a light jumper!

    And ice cream is of yourse always a plus.

  • Hands down my favourite ice cream place in the city! So pleased you’ve bucked the trend and posted about ice cream even though the weather’s taken a turn for the worse Rosie – ice cream is for every type of weather! My faves from Gelupo are their incredible pistachio and bitter chocolate, though I’m intrigued by the idea of the Parigina and the ricotta and black pepper…and Snickers and raspberry. Wow. x
