As this is my first review, I thought I’d start with an extra special location.
I am very lucky to call this my local cake spot during the week for those moments you just need to destress with a slice of cake! It is located at the top of Bermondsey Street and surrounded by boutique stores and restaurants that all the foodies dream of.
I have lost count of the amount of times I have actually been here but it still amazes me every time. I can usually be found sat in the corner of the wooden bench that runs along the rustic looking wall, salivating over the recommended cake of the day, with a creamy cappuccino to wash it all down.
This cake in particular was the salted caramel and chocolate cake which was delicious! The portions are always generous and the cakes are freshly made everyday, along with a selection of soups, sandwiches and wraps.
My favourite cake has to be the unusual lemon, rosemary and olive oil cake. It’s deliciously moist, with a strong taste of lemon and a hint of rosemary that keeps the taste buds interested with its slight perfume. The cake is tangy enough that you can eat a whole wedge and still want more.
This place still feels like a hidden gem even though it has now been rated one of the best coffee shops in London by Time Out! Very well deserved it has to be said.
It is perfect for those cold winter days with its cosy interior and wood fire, and the seasonal decorations make it all the more special. It is also a good spot to be in if you’re a dog lover as this seems to be the spot for the trendiest dogs in the area and their owners to refresh after a brisk walk around the park.
I couldn’t praise it more if I tried, and as a loyal customer, I encourage you to visit – but don’t you dare take my seat!
