Marine Ices – Camden


Ah Marines Ices, it’s mine and Andriani’s Summer hang out. They have the most delicious ice-cream in countless flavours and it comes in a stainless steel dish with a wafer, I’m talking old school stuff here. In the Summer (Summer in the Britain deserves a capital ‘S’ by the way, we need to show it respect so it hangs around longer) you will likely find a queue of people outside this retro Italian ice cream shop due to the delicious selection of homemade ice cream and good cheap authentic (Italian) food, with everything from spaghetti and meatballs to pizza and garlicky bruschetta. It has a spacious interior which is invariably packed and noisy due to its popularity with families and group get-togethers. It’s a family run business, open since 1928 with an interior that hasn’t changed since it opened – with walls lined with family photographs and pictures of random celebrities. I love it, it feels proper, you know like time just hasn’t touched these people. I hope they never refurbish, it’s perfect just the way it is.
