Last weekend I had the opportunity to attend a bloggers event at the new branch of Creams Café in Finsbury Park. It was only advertised on Twitter the night before, but fortunately I didn’t have any plans until the evening, so I immediately said yes. I mean, who could say no to waffles and ice cream?!
It was a bit short notice but luckily the friend who I had dinner plans with was available to meet earlier. So I left my house and headed to Finsbury Park, where I met up with my friend Jack. We had a little difficulty finding the café, since neither of us had Internet access, but we managed to find it eventually. And when we arrived the waitress didn’t seem to know about the event! However, we soon found Hayley, who was sitting at the table behind us with a few other bloggers and non-bloggers.
After getting to know each other, we placed our order. It was difficult choosing what to get as there were so many tempting and mouth-watering options on the menu – including waffles, sundaes, crepes, milkshakes and smoothies. I decided to get ‘The Waffle of Oreo Cookies’ to share with Jack. The others also got some waffles and crepes, as well as a plate of cookie dough and the humongous ‘Birthday Extravaganza’.
When the desserts arrived, I wasn’t that surprised at how huge they were. However, it was clear that we would definitely not be able to eat all of it! Nevertheless, I think we did quite well, considering there were only 6 of us, and we managed to sample all of the desserts. I personally loved ‘The Waffle of Oreo Cookies’ – I made the right choice there! It was a giant round waffle with a scoop of Oreo ice cream in the centre, crumbled Oreos, and white chocolate sauce drizzled all over it. The waffle also came with a side of vanilla ice cream – absolute madness!
Here are images of some of the desserts:
Overall, I really enjoyed the event, despite being very full afterwards! Creams Café is a fantastic place if you have a soft spot for desserts. Not only are the desserts delicious, but the staff are friendly and the décor is fun – I loved all the purple and glitter. I’ll definitely be paying Creams Café another visit since there are so many other desserts I need to try – I love the sound of the ‘Mango Mania Alfonzo’ Sundae, ‘Coconut Island’ Sundae and ‘Melted White Choc Indulgence’ Waffle. Of course, I won’t be getting quite as much food as I did last Saturday when I next visit Creams Café!
Creams Café has various branches in London and the rest of the UK, including Newcastle, Brighton, Coventry and Cardiff. Most branches are open from 9am to 11pm. I visited the one in Finsbury Park – the address is Unit 7 & 8 Clifton House, Finsbury Park, London, N4 3JU.
