La Cigale offers a wide spectrum of ice cream flavours to satisfy any sweet tooth. The name of this delightful neighbourhood ice cream shop comes from the French fable, La Cigale et la Fourmi. Also known as the story of the diligent ant and the carefree cicada, the latter epitomizes the youthful joy of summer (never mind the end of the tale). With its characteristic song and beauty, the cicada is considered by many to be a sign of good luck. With a name so jovial, it's no wonder a visit to La Cigale reveals a warm, festive little shop splashed with all the colours of the rainbow.
This little ice cream shop offers what none of the big chains do: fresh, homemade ice cream created in-store every morning. It's this hands-on approach that gives La Cigale the ability to concoct such original flavours, like Ginger Snap & Chai, Raspberry Champagne Sorbet, Coconut Cashew and Brownies and Cream.

May to Thanksgiving
I went last night and had the hazelnut chocolate and the peanut butter chocolate and they were both delicious, but moreso the latter.
If you're in Chelsea and hankering for a sweet treat, definitely check it out, but it I can't say that it is a must-eat.
I have to admit I'm hooked to Cassis in Aylmer... Can I say that in a review?
