London is littered with brilliant bakeries and quaint cupcake cafes, but the trend in baked sweet treats and savoury delights has had somewhat of a cool-over of late. Whether you fancy a boulangerie with a twist, a Scandi-style experience or a gluten-free feast, these venues all offer quirky yet cool characteristics. From biskies to cruffins, these cool eateries sell more than your usual donut.
Located on the corner of Goodge Street and Charlotte Place, this cool, contemporary cafe serves up artisanal French food with an Asian-inspired twist. From green tea croissants to ‘banh mi’ sandwiches, MoBa Boulangerie fuses authentic Vietnamese flavours with French baking methods to create mouth-wateringly good East-meets-West style pastries.
The Hole Donuts
Fancy trying a Guacamole or Katsu Curry flavour-filled panko crumb-topped donut? Look to London pop-up The Hole in Hackney, where they create imaginative and bizarre sweet and savoury style donuts. From Rosemary and Salt to Raspberry and Coffee, there is no flavour combination The Hole won’t make a donut out of.
