It has not yet becoming a habit to have cake whenever I go and see some art, but maybe it should. Many big museum have a café attached to their exhibition spaces. And if that’s not your thing…most are also located in areas that have a wide range of bakeries and coffee shops surrounding them. So I will keep this little list of mine going until I’m bored of it.
My favourite cake and cultural hang out near home is the South London Gallery in Peckham. The restaurant attached to it is called No67 and it is amazing. It offers great outside space at the front and also a glass encased back garden bit.
I’ve been several times now and the cake is always amazing. The Guinness cake with poppy seeds was so far my favourite, as the sponge had the right consistency and wasn’t too sweet. The coffee is decent, but not my favourite.
Next time around I tried the banana bread and it was equally lush. I had it with a bottle of ELB (East London Brewing Company) Quadrant, which doesn’t seem to be an obvious choice with cake but it goes very well together.
No67 offers everything from brunch to dinner. I’ve only heard great things about it. So far I hadn’t had the chance to go for a proper meal but I’ll let you know as soon as I sampled more than the cake. But for now it’s my favourite cake place in town.
