London Eats and Treats – Part 2

Time for a second (belated!) installment of my London Eats and Treats series, Hopefully you will have seen the first post. I hope that you find these useful if you are planning a trip. Finding nice places to eat is always top of my list when I go take a break away, let me know if you try some out!

Breakfast Club, Hoxton, Angel, Soho and various other locations


This is such a great place for weekend brunch and don’t Londoners know it – as a result you may have to queue on Saturdays and Sunday’s! But it is worth it, their pancakes are so good – as you can see from the intro image above! So much so that they even won over David’s taste buds – who prior to that did not understand the appeal of this brunch staple (strange I know, I tried for years to lure him into the world of pancakey goodness to no avail) The Hoxton branch is my favorite as it’s quite big and spacious (handy if there if a group) with a good atmosphere at the weekends.

If you are looking to treat yourself, look no further. Wow. For food, decor and instagramability, Sketch has it all! Now it is one of the pricier options on today’s list of recommendations (afternoon tea will set you back the best part of £60) but it is a really special experience. My friend Sarah and I went to celebrate our respective promotion and new job and we loved it! Everything is refillable (except for the bubbles!) during your 2 hour sitting, so needless to say there was a steady stream of waiters to our table bringing sandwich top ups, extra scones (you can’t beat a good old scone!) and tea refills! The decor is just amazing and so different in each room – I guarantee that you will be taking selfies in the bathroom! Book in advance!

Kimchee, Holborn

IMG_0600There is no greater endorsement of this Korean restaurant that I can give you other than to say that each time I visit the restaurant it is filled with Korean expats eager to get a proper taste of home. And they serve really good cocktails! Like many places in London they don’t take reservations but there is loads of communal style seating so they wait shouldn’t be too long!

Crumbs and Doilies, Carnaby St.

This is a really cute cupcake shop hidden down one of Carnaby’s lane ways but it’s definitely worth seeking out. Crumbs and Doilies is owned by Cupcake Jemma who some of you might recognize from Jamie Oliver’s Foodtube. (Picture credit: Crumbsanddoilies Instagram)

Milk and Honey, Soho

imageFor a liquid treat of the cocktail variety, Milk and Honey is top of my list. I visited with friends for the first time a few weeks ago and we all loved it! It’s a members only bar but if you make reservations in advance you can get a table. It’s like stepping back in time, it’s lit by candle light predominantly which helps create a wonderful atmosphere. The cocktails are only just divine altogether, I had 3 different gin based concoctions which I lapped up! Most cocktails are priced around 10 which is pretty standard (even reasonable!!!) for a place like this.

Keep an eye here, on my snapchat (bakemystyle) and Instagram for news of my next post.

Have a great weekend!
