It’s 10pm on a cold Autumn night and I’m walking around Soho, I’m suddenly stopped in my tracks, first of all, by the sight of a crepe maker in a shop window (heaven), followed further by a colourful array of gelato at the back of the shop. All of my Summer memories from Florence came flooding back to me in an instant! I gawped through the window only to discover churros (also heaven!), waffles and cakes too.
That was it, I had to go inside.
I headed here after a light dinner, however it’s never the wrong time of day to go for ice cream, or the wrong season – there’s a growing trend in London for swapping dinner and drinks for puddings, and why not. For pure indulgence I had the Nutella filling with white chocolate sprinkles (£4.70). I have to say it was completely worth the calorie content. You can add a scoop of ice cream and an array of toppings.
Check out the crepe and waffle menu here.
There’s a couple of tables to sit down at but not many, so you may want to take your pudding away and go for a stroll around the West End while you munch.
If you really don’t want to leave the warmth of your bed but you are now dying to try Scoop, you can have gelato from Scoop delivered to your home by Deliveroo.
