If you are visiting London and have some spare time, you may be interested where to go for the best cakes, macaroons or éclairs in the city. We found 5 best new bakeries worth to visit.
The newest one is Dominique Ansel in Elisabeth Street, Belgravia. You can detect it by two things: amazing smell of vanilla and the very long queue of those who dream to try the famous Cronut – a doughnut-croissant hybrid which was invented by the famous culinary artist from New York. Delicious chocolate-chip cookie filled with vanilla milk is a must eat too.
To try the best cupcakes in the world you should go to Peggy Porschen Parlour in London’s Belgravia. In this beautiful pastel pink fairytale parlour you can find fantastic cupcakes, cookies, edible gifts and drinks. You even may have courses to learn how to bake their signature cupcakes of your own! Truly unique experience.
If you are a fan of French pastry, you obviously should visit Maitre Choux – the first and only choux specialist patisserie located in South Kensington. There the three Michelin star pastry chef Joakim Prat (formerly of Joël Robuchon) shows his art of making éclairs, choux and chouquettes. Flavours include Tahitian vanilla with pecans, a multi-origin dark chocolate éclair, a pistachio pastry, a Spanish raspberry éclair, and tiramisu and lemon cream flavours – so classy! Note that most of the éclairs are sold out before 2pm, so get up earlier to get the best one.
Being a healthy foodie and still dreaming for some sweet bite, you could go for your dream to legendary Jerusalem chef Yotam Ottolenghi’s deli in Belgravia. His desserts are little less sweet but not less tasty! Yotam’s chocolate raspberry tarts, meringe roulades with rose petals and almond cakes with yoghurt and figs are perfect as well as homemade jams and chutneys.
For the best macarons in London visit to the hidden gem in Belgravia boutique Pierre Herme. The acclaimed chef Pierre Herme has been obsessed by baking macarons since he was 14. Then he started to experiment with them in the mid 1980s , trying to create different flavours, such as lemon, pistachio, salted caramel and mandarin. The results were sensational. So, go and eat macarons!
