Pancakes/crepes, a sense of wellbeing, uncomplicated comfort food. Snowflake Gelato appeared out nowhere in the lively area of Soho. The glass windows clearly lit up the metropolis of the gelatos with beautiful arrays of colours.
Been passed this place many times on Wardour Street, but never seemed to have the “gelato” craving. I finally took the chance last Friday night.
The brand & concept is pleasing, as a designer with a great eye for detail. The simplicity of the logo with the double twin cone and the choice of a sans serif font. The colours are neutral is perfect harmony. The furniture is plain white leather upholstery and walls to match. Provides a relaxing dessert lounge.
That night my friend and I fancied the gelato & crepes. I was steering towards strawberries & cream but went for the pistachio one. All the photos inside the menu looked so mouth-watering. My friend picked lemon crepe. For drinks I had one of the refresher “Snowfloats”.
When the “Bronte” arrived it looked exactly like the photos in the menu. The crepes were paper thin with a slight crisp, without being too buttery. The drizzled pistachio sauce was rich, nutty and truly indulgent. The gelato, was velvet smooth, luxurious with natural flavours shining through. The sprinkled pistachio nuts gave it that extra texture.
The refresher snowfloat stood out even more, lemon and lime soda served on top of crushed iced with some raspberries and a scoop of lemon sorbet. Make sure you mix the raspberries with the drink to truly appreciate all the flavours. The lemon sorbet fizzed inside my mouth with the sharp tangy flavours. Exactly like it’s name it was refreshing and delightful.
My friend and I have already recommended the place to our friends and will defiantly be back to explore the rest of the menu.
