Eat ice cream at the Queen's grocery shop

Right in the centre of town, opposite the Royal Academy, Fortnum & Mason, at 181 Piccadilly, was established in 1707 by William Fortnum and Hugh Mason. The store has held Royal Warrants for over 150 years, and specialises in food fit for kings.

Whilst this is not ordinarily your author's thing, he has previously been tempted by sweet-toothed friends to the the Parlour Restaurant, on the First Floor. The Parlour specialises in overpriced ice creams, but they are certainly a cut above a 99 and there are a range interesting flavours on offer.
