God Save the Cream, Lick the Icecreamists Cones on Covent Garden Piazza

God save the cream!

Ice-cream agitateur, Matt O'Connor of The Icecreamists talks to Covent Garden Journal in Devilishly Good (June 13) about his life in ice-cream.


He "was a seaside boy, brought up on Planet Thanet and Morelli’s ice cream parlour on top of the cliff at Broadstairs – I had my first knickerbocker glory there."

Matt O'Connor credits the Sex Pistols and his political activism as sources of inspiration for The Icecreamists.

The Icecreamists give you licence to chill on the terrace of their Covent Garden shop. The Terrace opened on Saturday, June 25th for the summer.


An Italian feel in London!
