“Desserts to die for, the best artisan gelato in town and excellent customer service.” - Time Out
“I love this dessert place hidden on the side streets of Whitechapel as it has a mouth-watering selection of desserts, and a cosy interior with its booths and vibrantly decorated walls.
I've been many times but in my latest visit, I had the cookie dough and milk cake which were both so delicious and well presented. I will definitely be returning again for more desserts!” – Ai Kumon
“I personally enjoy the desserts from here and this was really good. The service is friendly and polite, overall nice atmosphere and good service. The prices are super affordable with no compromise to quality. If you’ve never been, I recommend trying the cookie dough!” - Shazedah
