What’s The Deal?
A recently opened ice cream parlour by Granary Square, Kings Cross.
This area is absolutely buzzing of late with so much development and Ruby Violet is the latest addition to pop up. The place has a smaller, local producer type feel, using only organic milk, free range eggs and seasonal ingredients in the ice cream.
A broad selection of flavours means that all tastes are catered for and regular new creations seem to be added to the menu or in the weekly specials. It’s almost impossible you could leave here feeling unsatisfied with your order! We tried the Belgian Chocolate & Salted Caramel and both held their own. The selection of toppings and sauces finish things of nicely and there’s a decent drinks menu including coffees, hot chocolate and of course, milkshakes. If you fancy taking anything home, there’s also bits and pieces to buy, such as a rather tempting Salted Caramel Sauce for £5.
If it’s a nice day, the location makes it ideal to takeaway and sit outside on the grass overlooking the canal, or if the weather isn’t so kind there is a small area for eating inside with a couple of tables. The decor is pleasing on the eye and fits in well with the building and landscape around it. I’m sure I’ll be back here on a warm, sunny day soon!
Perfect for kids or adults alike! Ideal for families with hungry children who’ve been playing in the Granary Square fountains, while still being sophisticated enough for the grown ups.
Budget or Bust?
£ – Starting at £3 per scoop, prices are as you would expect for a fairly upmarket central London ice cream parlour. Good quality & organically sourced produce also means you get what you pay for.
