I love baking. I love all baked goods. So naturally I love spending time in bakeries!! London is home to some incredible bakeries as well so it seemed almost perfect to spend a day last weekend on our very own version of a bakery tour! 💛
We had a rough plan for the day in that we knew we wanted to stay in central London and as we started the day with a hearty breakfast at the Breakfast Club in Soho we continued on from there! P.s. I highly recommend the Breakfast Club, a bit of a wait to get it but it’s so worth it – check out these pancakes we had 😍
Our first stop was a well known haven for delicious cupcakes – The Hummingbird Bakery! There was so much choice I think we stood there for quite a while trying to decide! In the end I went for a Salted Caramel Cupcake, so so good!!
Next stop on the tour was Crumbs and Doilies… I’d been following and drooling over their Instagram for a little and I thought whilst in London I had to seek them out. Once again we had an important decision on our hands – what to choose?! I finally chose 4 mini cupcakes as you know I’m a big fan of cute looking bakes 😉
I’ve definitely fallen in love with Crumbs and Doilies and will most definitely be making another visit 🙂
Our third stop was Maison Bertaux which has been described as Londons oldest patisserie! Do not let the inside deceive you, it’s a very quaint bakery, but as soon as you walk in the smell of all these delicious cakes, tarts and pastries fills the air and it is Devine! With a multitude of choices again this time I went for a Pear and Almond cake 🙂 Lovely and moist and well just what you’d expect from a bakery that has been perfecting it’s craft for over 100 years!
Next up we were in search of something savoury as we were on a huge sugar high!! Walking back towards Covent Garden we found Balthazar… a cute little bakery next door to its main restaurant. I knew I wanted and needed something savoury but I couldn’t stop looking at all the sweet treats, they looked mouth-wateringly good! I had to be satisfied with their sweet smell as I chose to tuck into some Tomato and Basil Foccacia! Very very tasty, I am a big bread lover so this hit all the right notes!!
Not being one to deny myself sweet things for very long we ended the Bakerh tour on a high with somewhere I’ve been desperate to visit for a long time – Laduree!
Flying high on sugar and an increased love of all things baking we ended our own mini tour – full of delicious memories ❤️ if you’d like to follow the same bakery tour then I’ve left the addresses below for you!
