Sprinkles Gelato – Finchley Road

Even though it was fairly early on in the day, when friends got together, ice cream was on the agenda. Sprinkles Gelato looks like an American diner with its red cushioned booths. What struck us the most was the lovely aroma of waffles that was filling the whole of the cafe. On the menu, there…
