London - Hampstead - Ginger & White and Slice of Ice

oonth | Aug 4, 200902:50 PM     4

Finally, a coffee shop worthy of the name in Hampstead village. I tried a latte and eccles cake this morning, both excellent and I'm excited to try everything else on the menu especially weekend brunch items. Chatted to Nick, one of the co-owners, no surprise to find out that he's a Sydneysider. Coffee sourced from the excellent Square Mile Coffee Roasters, they are currently using the summer espresso blend.

Slice of ice is a gelateria that opened up a few weeks back taking over the neighbourhood butcher's shop on Flask Walk that had been vacant for over a year. I've been impressed by the quality of gelato (and also the two English style ice creams) they are selling as well as by the waffle cones. Gelato is made by an Italian lady called Ariela in North London (link below).

Great to see some high quality, independent, husband/wife operations opening up in my neighbourhood, I wish them well and here's hoping for more of their kind.
