Our latest parlour opened in May 2016 on the corner of The Old Midland Goods Shed in Kings Cross Canal Quarter, 2 minutes walk from Granary Square. We have a larger seating area and a small garden, enclosed with planters.
Pudding Club at both parlours on Friday and Saturday evenings 6pm-9.30 pm, serving mini baked Alaskas and Chocolate fondants. This is available at other times on request.
Our parlours are available for private functions outside our normal opening hours. The Panama table at Kings Cross is also bookable for a small fee.
All our dairy ice cream is made in small batches, using seasonal fruit prepared daily in our Tufnell Park parlour. In the summer the mint, rhubarb, apples and honey are all sourced from within a few miles. Blackberries and damsons come from Julie's home village of Flintham in Nottinghamshire.
We decided right at the beginning to only use organic milk, free range eggs, British or fair trade sugar. We use no artificial preservatives and all our tubs are biodegradable and compostable, and we recycle our spoons.
The ice creams all contain egg yolk.
The sorbets are vegan.
All the sorbets and ice creams may contain traces of nuts, as we use the same equipment and although it is cleaned thoroughly between each batch we cannot guarantee a completely nut free product.
We’re always open to suggestions for new flavours and are very willing to experiment, so please contact us with any ideas.
We serve a selection of alcoholic and non alcoholic drinks:
Newby teas, Ozone coffee, Belgian Hot Chocolate, Affogato.
Milkshakes made with Duchy Originals milk and 2 scoops of our ice cream.
Wines from Vinothentic: Red, White, Rose, Prosecco and a chilled Red Gamay, Limoncino.
Mr Blacks coffee liqueur
A variety of sundaes with hot sauces.
At Ruby Violet we're happy to keep it local, make it by hand and talk to our customers.
