A sunny afternoon gave us the chance to head to Ruby Violet for some decadent ice cream. It’s another story but briefly, Ruby Violet is a real treasure. It has so many unusual flavours and there is so much choice for ice cream and sorbets.
After tasting a few including the slightly spicy Chai ice cream, I chose the Apricot and Sour Cream together with a scoop of Raspberry Ripple. Both were totally scrumptious. Our afternoon was made that little bit more special when we saw Damian Lewis (of Homeland fame) come in with his family for their ice cream treats.
Satisfied with our Ruby Violet ice cream, we ventured a couple of doors down for coffee at Cinnamon Village. Cinnamon Village was nice enough. It had seating indoors and outdoors and we opted to sit outside on the decked area.
The Americano was good and the staff were friendly. On the menu, there were also smoothies, iced coffee, tea and the option for soya milk.
Cinnamon Village sells organic products in the store as well as sandwiches and salads.
