Summer is (almost) officially here and the weather is gorgeous! If there’s one place we plan on spending most of the season, however, is down Harbourside. Soaking up the sun by the water. Popping off to Wapping Wharf for a beer, a margarita, some wine, small plates, fish and chips, pasta or cheese. Basically, you can find nearly everything your heart desires in the Cargo containers. But one new place is perfect for summertime and is making us Swoon with delight.
The best way to cool down this June will be with a big scoop of ice cream by the Harbour. The authentic gelato shop Swoon, which also has a location on Park Street, is making this dream a reality by opening at Wapping Wharf yesterday (June 13). Low fat, rich and creamy with an intense flavour compared to traditional ice cream, the fact that it is gelato means you can eat twice as much!
The family-owned business is inspired by Italian gelato bars that act as hubs for local communities. Where people can come together for gelato and coffee. Swoon still uses traditional methods to slowly churn the gelato, as well as high-quality, natural ingredients to create the finest-tasting gelato in a range of different varieties and flavours. It also has locations in Cardiff, Bath, Oxford and London.
Some of the amazing gelati flavours you can enjoy include Madagascan vanilla, pistachio, chocolate brownie, hazelnut, bacio, Amarena cherry cheesecake and salted caramel. Vegans can also get their hands on sorbets like dark chocolate and raspberry. But don’t just rely on gelato to cool you down this summer, a hot drink can work wonders too surprisingly. So grab a cup of genuine Italian coffee while down there too.
But that’s not all, Swoon also designs and makes some absolutely jaw-dropping and luxurious gelato cakes. Perfect for any occasion, they can be customised with your favourite flavours and personalised message. To learn more about Swoon Gelato head here.
