Strawberries And Cream Crêpe At Crepeaffaire
Crepeaffaire has a variety of sweet and savory crêpes, a recent addition to the menu being the strawberry and cream crêpe. Served with dollops of whipped cream on the side, this crêpe has a filling of sliced strawberries and a drizzle of sugar. Best to have it while it’s hot, or if the sun is at its glimmering best, walk right across to Turnham Green Park and make a picnic out of it.

Fraisier At Maison Blanc
Tucked right off Chiswick High Road is the gorgeous Maison Blanc. It is a cozy French café that invites you right in with a mouth watering display of tarts and cakes. What catches your eye are the fraisiers: a seasonal delicacy served at the café only in the summer. A pretty cake made with mousseline cream and genoise sponge, it is delicately lined with fresh strawberries and white chocolate. Treat yourself to a brunch here and devour a fraisier for dessert with a crisp sauvignon blanc.

Strawberry Tart At Le Pain Quotidien
Le Pain Quotidien gives us one more reason to love them with the assortment of strawberry cakes and tarts. The strawberry tart is something special to try, with the gleaming strawberries sitting pretty atop the dessert. The tart pastry is crunchy, the cream filling rich, and the strawberries fresh. Deconstruct and eat them in layers or plunge in all textures together at once. This is the perfect choice for a slow snack, with a book and bottomless cups of coffee for company.

Strawberry Ice Cream at Foubert’s
Foubert’s is probably the best place in Chiswick to satiate your ice cream craving. It’s a family run Italian restaurant sitting at the corner of the road, and quite plain looking and ordinary on the front. However, if you skip it for the vanilla façade, you will miss out on the party for your palette that’s offered inside. The strawberry ice cream is prepared with clotted cream and fresh strawberries, and there are some other great flavors to pick from and combine. At Foubert’s, they make sure you are well fed in true Italian style, with copious servings of homemade ice cream served into your cone or cup.
