Been to many of these bakery as it’s all over London . But only when I have a sugar craving and there’s no where else to go. Personally thus would not be my first choice. I find the cakes very basic and too overrated and...More

Took over 15 minutes to order and then a further half an hour for the food to arrive. The food itself was edible, if a little cold. I won't be back.

Just popped in for a pot of tea, which was delicious, and couldn't resist a fabulous croissant. The best I've ever eaten outside France.

Great for breakfast, brunch or lunch, dine in or take away. The pastries and gateaux looked divine and I can vouch for the pecan and maple tart. Had to have another one a couple of days later.

access to many of London's most popular attractions.
It is also home to some of Britain's most celebrated
museums, including the must-see British Museum.
Despite an understandable popularity with students,
tourists and day trippers, vast sections of Bloomsbury
retain a quiet, residential feel year round and
