Peanut Butter and Strawberry Jam FTW
Date Of Last Visit: October, 2015

Florean Fortescue's is a bit sparse and utilitarian in decoration compared to other Diagon Alley shops and stores,. However, the ice cream is terrific. Harry Potter supernerds (such as I) may be momentarily disappointed: this shop does NOT sell "choco-nut" sundaes which Harry gets (for free!) in the third book. However, any disappointment is soon dispersed as what Florean's does have is delicious. I have not tried all the flavors, but I'm going to have a really hard time not choosing Earl Grey and the Strawberry/Peanut Butter combo for the rest of my life. They are superb and complement one another perfectly. I want some right now. . it's too bad you can't magically summon food.

A Must Go!

The ice cream here is phenomenal. I tried Earl Grey & Lavender, Chocolate & Raspberry, and the butter better. I will have dreams about the earl grey. So light, so delicious.
Some things to know:
- You get 2 scoops of any two flavors you'd like in the cup or waffle cone.
- There are NO samples, but if you don't like the flavor, you can tell them and they will make you a new one.
- You can get the butter beer ice cream next door at the butter beer shop for half the wait (or less)
- It's $5 a cup. Totally worth it.

Although the shop itself wasn't very "Harry Potter" theme-like, I would definitely stop by here!

A Cool Fact

Did you know that you can get two separate flavors when you order the scooped icecream? No extra charge. So you can try the strawberry peanut butter and the chocolate raspberry!
