At the end of Summer last year (yes I know.. this is so late that it’s pretty much Summer 2018 now, but better late than never!) we headed up North and decided to plan a day trip somewhere to discover some food places outside of London! We’d been tempted to go to the seaside – I have some seriously fond memories of stuffing my face with hot, fresh sugared donuts in Blackpool or Magpie fish and chips (which I understand is currently closed due to a fire! 😦 ) in Whitby, but we eventually decided to go somewhere new (and somewhere that had plenty of indoorsy things to do should the great British weather decide to fail us (it predictably did!).
A question I get asked all too frequently is ‘what’s your favourite place to eat in London’ and I’m afraid I simply just can’t answer that! There are SO many incredible places to eat in London to suit all preferences and depending on my mood I can be craving anything from a giant pizza, an ice cream sundae bigger than my head or the most incredible hummus and falafel salad from Chickpea.
When cookie dough is done well, it’s hard to imagine a more perfect treat! I am a self-proclaimed cookie monster – along with cakes they’re probably my favourite baked item – and usually my first choice from any supermarket bakery (unless I’m at Morrisons in which case their incredible donuts always seem to find their way into my trolley!).
I’m going to keep this post short and sweet.. like the amount of time it took me to get through every flavour Doughnut Time have to offer 😉
A bakery is pretty much every carb lover’s dream.. and as a self-confessed carb queen, to walk into a place like Ole & Steen and be told to pretty much help yourself is quite literally a dream come true.
It feels like a while since I’ve blogged about a brunch spot* but after visiting this place I couldn’t not – it was just so good. Sunday is an independent neighbourhood café and restaurant, so ‘neighbourhood-like’ that they don’t even have a website, which seems almost unheard of in this day and age (I know – I sound so old!).
