London Eats and Treats – Part 3

Time for the final post in my current series of London Eats and Treats. I’m sure that you have already spotted something that caught the attention of your taste buds in the first two posts! (here and here) I have tried to cover a variety of types of foods and budgets so that there is some thing for everyone. Don’t forget to let me know if you try out any of my recommendations, I would love to hear what you think!

Stax, Carnaby St.


You may recall me mentioning Bea’s of Bloomsbury in my first post of this series and this is owned by the same person, Bea Vo.
At Stax she takes inspiration from her U.S. upbringing so it’s all about delicious diner food- finger licking southern fried chicken, ginormous burgers and some brunch favourites  too – waffles!!! In fact my favourite dish on the menu is unusual fusion of savory and sweet, chicken and waffles (pictured in the intro image – delish!!) It sounds wrong but please be assured that this tastes oh so right!!! Oh I really want it now- this the trouble when you write mainly about food!! (Current location as I write this is on a crowded tube far from the tasty comforts of Stax!!) It’s quite a small restaurant so you may need to leave you name with them to be called back when a table becomes available but honestly there are so many fab shops and boutiques near by that you won’t be bored waiting! Alternatively if you are in the mood for pizza you can pop down stairs to try my next recommendation…

Pizza pilgrims, Carnaby St. and Dean St.

IMG_4067 Located just down stairs from Stax this another fab pizza place. You will have probably guessed if you have read my previous post that I’m a big fan of Neapolitan style pizza! As you can see above it seems that when I was too busy tasting the Italian beer that I didnt take any pictures of the food!! They also serve really delicious Arancini risotto ball which have a gooey mozzarella centre – yum! This is a very reasonably priced option offering great value for money with pizza loaded with Italian flavors and tastes.

Pierre Marcolini, Marylebone High Street

imageThis is a relatively new discovery since I started working in Marylebone. These guys are choux pastry artists, you would nearly feel bad eating something so delicately crafted if only it didn’t taste so deliciously delicious! Now it is a bit of a treat as the eclairs are the small (but perfectly formed) and cost just a under £5! But you have to indulge in a treat every now and again! I got the passion fruit flavor and it was amazing!!!

Duck and waffle, Heron Tower

imageIf you want great food and great views then Duck and Waffle has both in abundance. The last time I visited was for a birthday brunch with David and I have been wanting to go back again since for breakfast at sunrise. The restaurant is actually open 24 hours but make sure to book well in advance as the weekends book up quickly!

Primrose Bakery, Covent Garden and Primrose Hill

IMG_4270I love this little cake shop, it’s so cute! They have a branch in Primrose Hill as well as one near Covent Garden. They have a core selection of cupcake flavors that are served all week as well as some tasty daily specials. It’s a great place for a sweet pick me up if you have been on the tourist trail around Covent garden and if you are lucky you might grab a free table (there are only 3/4!). How pretty are the cupcakes?!

I hope you have enjoyed this series. Time for me to start planning some new food adventures so that I have material for the next series! Don’t forget you can keep up to date with Bake My Style on Instagram and snapchat (bakemystyle)

Happy dining!
