Try an ice cream and éclair mash-up to celebrate National Eclair Day in style!

There’s nothing better than ice cream on a hot sunny day… Or is there?

Melba, the coffee shop on the Strand, named after Auguste Escoffier’s famous creation, is set to start a brand new dessert trend of its own with the launch of Icéclairs on Monday 3 July.

Melba which is known for being one of  London’s finest éclair specialists, will offer new frozen treats, PLUS will allow customers to customise their own Icéclairs with all kinds of colourful and imaginative toppings, sauces and glazes.

The launch of the Icéclair will coincide with a new look store, complete with a new coffee offering from Union Hand-Roasted Coffee and a range of artisan breads, sandwiches, cakes and lunchtime snacks, all crafted by The Savoy’s pastry team.

The Icéclairs will feature light choux pastry filled with delicious hand-made ice cream in a range of five flavours – from pure dark chocolate and Sicilian pistachio to salted caramel and wild berries.

Upon picking their ice cream flavour, guests will be invited to choose from a chocolate, caramel or raspberry sauce and a dark, milk or white chocolate glaze before experimenting with toppings.

Toppings are a-plenty too with popping candy, cookie dough and candy floss alongside caramelised hazelnuts, shortbread and chocolate crunchy pearls.

You’ll also be pleased to know they don’t have a luxury price tag, coming in at £4.95 for one Icéclair.
