Cream Tea has to be one of my favourite British traditions. There is never such a thing as too much jam or clotted cream. Metrodeco in Brighton brings a vintage charm to the whole affair (I especially love their leopard print chairs).
Daisy Green Food in Marylebone makes me feel like I’m in Australia again. Great coffee, amazing food… plus, this array of salads on their counter makes me feel healthy just by looking at it.
I am an absolute sucker for rustic, fresh, flavoursome donuts. My favourites have to be from Bread Ahead in Borough Market. Deciding which flavour to choose is the tricky part.
Birthdays are a time to Treat Yo Self, so of course this year I ordered the most extravagant cake I could find. Anges De Sucre creates the most photogenic (and DELICIOUS) cakes in London.
I’m a sucker for a good street food market. Give me fresh food out of a van and a bottle of craft beer and I’m happy. Street Feast in Dalston Yard is a particular favourite spot of mine on a Friday night.
I know everyone goes nuts for chocolate at Easter, but I’m all about the hot cross buns. Last year I waited for an hour for these babies to come out of the oven at E5 Bakehouse. Well worth it.
A mug of hot chocolate while smelling and watching fresh bread come out of the oven. This is the way to embrace winter.
I don’t think there’s much more to enjoy on a lazy Sunday than a good coffee, some smashed avocado on toast and a brand new book.
La Fromagerie in Marylebone has such mouthwatering displays of food. Now that the festive season is upon us I’ll be heading in every chance I get for some fruit mice pies.
One of my first days after landing in London was at the tail end of summer… I wandered around the city all day before finding myself in St James’ Park. What better way to celebrate moving into my new city than with an ice cream?!
