15 Best Desserts In London You Need To Try
If you like Krispy Kreme’s and Dum Dum doughnuts, I don’t know what is with the hype with Dum Dum Doughnuts. I tried all of them and found the best donuts in London and it is doughnut Time trips them all.
Doughnut Time is an Australian doughnut company that has recently come to London. They only have 4 locations. The great thing about them is that their doughnuts are freshly made every day and very limited.
They make a limited amount of each flavor every day, so you need to head down quickly to get the doughnut you want. They also delivery to some parts of London. This is one of the best desserts in London you need to try.
Their flavors include Notorious P.I.G that is strawberry glazed with strawberry buttercream, topped with pink sprinkles and Percy Pigs. Also, their signature donut is called love at first bite that is a Nutella-Filled doughnut, dusted with Cinnamon sugar and many more amazing flavors.
The great thing about them is that they change the menu and always providing new flavors they have concocted.
Those are the two doughnuts I tried from their Shaftsbury Avenue store in central London. I love my doughnuts the best ones I have tried so far. They sell some vegan Doughnuts. The vegan Donuts are still very lovely to try.

Chin Chin Labs are Europe’s First Liquid Nitrogen Ice-Cream Parlour. Chin Chin Labs have used science combined with food to make one of the best ice creams I have ever tried. They use liquid nitrogen to freeze the ice cream. The reason why liquid nitrogen is used is that it causes the fats and the water particles to stay very small giving the Ice-Cream its creamy consistency.
This reduces the size of ice crystals making the process and gives the Ice-Cream a better taste with more creamy and smooth ice cream. Before I went to the Ice-Cream Parlour, I thought the Ice-Cream would be very cold as it is -196 degrees Celsius, or -321 degrees Fahrenheit and without using special gloves you can freeze your fingers to the point where they fool off. To my surprise, the Ice-Cream was a normal Ice-Cream temperature not that cold.
In addition to getting an Ice-Cream when you order one, you get a range of free topping you chose from to add to your Ice-Cream for no extra price. You can get tubs of Ice-Cream that is made to order.
The flavors are changing weekly and the classics are still there, like green tea marshmallow. They have an Ice-Cream store in Covent Garden and the one in Soho sells Ice-Cream and dessert. This is sure a great place to go in the summer!

3BIS is an ice-cream parlor originated from Italy. Timeout London has raved about this company and gave it 5 stars saying that it is one of their favorite Ice-Cream parlors.3Bis uses a traditional 1950s ice-cream machine to make creamy gelato. I asked The Company what their name means, and they said 3BIS came from the address of the small lab where they stared and they have kept it unchanged, to remind them of the roots.
3BIS’ passion for ice cream is clear to see. They pride their self’s on quality ingredients sourced from Italy. The Ice-cream is served in small batches so costumes will always receive the freshest Ice-cream. The menu encompasses frozen yogurt, ice-cream cakes, brioches, and crêpes – the specialty coffees are also worth a mention, but they are well known for their Ice-Cream.
The reason that brought me to go to this Ice-Cream parlor was that they serve their Ice-Cream in a cup that is edible. The cups and comes come in three sizes starting at £3.20 for two flavors. They have Italian classics and creative English innovations like Eton Mess Ice-cream. This decently a place to try next time you are in London. They have store satiated on the edge of Brought Market.

9. Naked Dough

Let's get naked shall we? 🤷🏻♂ . If you're a gluttonous piggy like us 🐷🐷 and are willing to take the salmonella risk by devouring the leftover cookie dough from the mixing bowl then you will enjoy hearing about this. You can relive those childhood memories (in a safe to eat way…) at @_nakeddough 🍦 . We enjoyed two bowls here 🍪 White Choc Chip x Vegan Lotus Biscuit 🍫 Vegan cookies & cream x salted caramel & honeycomb . We found that the vegan options weren't as moist as the non-vegan ones and were a bit too crumbly and didn't have a traditional cookie dough texture. But the non-vegan scoops were defintiely more enjoyable for us! Sadly they were out of ice cream on the day we went but we think some ice cream on top would have elevated it so much! 🤩 . *invited . 📍Camden Market 💷 £4.50 (double scoop tub) ⭐ 6.5/10
The naked dough is the UK’s first cookie dough café that specializes in everything cookie dough. It is a very big hit as their pop-up shop had people queuing around the block. They say that they have made the raw cookie dough safe to eat. All you do is choose your flavor of raw cookie dough and does not contain eggs. Then add the toppings.
