Food:★★★★★  Service:★★★★★  Ambiance:★★★★★   Overall: ★★★★★ Price:£ I know I bore everyone with my boring cake reviews and so I will make this short and sweet. While spending a leisurely weekend in Copenhagen my friend an I really took to this amazing café on the fringes of the city centre.

Honey and Spice Deli, Fitzrovia

You know those restaurants that you and your friends keep saying “Hey we need to try that” and then you never do because they are tiny and a pain to book? Honey and Co. is that restaurant for me. I’ve been wanting to go for ages. I tried to book for six people and the…

Art and cake III. – No67, Peckham 

Food: ★★★★★ Service: ★★★★☆  Ambiance:★★★★★   Overall: ★★★★★ Price:££ It has not yet becoming a habit to have cake whenever I go and see some art, but maybe it should.

Art and cake II. – Au ciel, Dulwich Village 

Food:★★☆☆☆  Service:★★☆☆☆  Ambiance:★★☆☆☆    Overall:★★☆☆☆ Price:£ So here’s the big reveal: I’m looking for work. So I had some time off and decided to go to the Dulwich Picture Gallery.

Art and cake I. – Anderson & Co., Peckham 

Food: ★★★☆☆ Service: ★★★★☆  Ambiance:★★★★☆   Overall: ★★★★☆ Price:££ I’m a little bit like Grant when it comes to cake: I love eating it, but … somehow the English never get it quite right. Even so, once in a while I’m going for a “Kaffeekränzchen” as the Germans say. It means …literally the translation says a small coffee…

Crumbs & Doilies, Soho

Some days I want cake. (Okay. EVERY day I want cake, but I don’t actually eat cake every day.) On this occasion, our usual cake vendor was closed for a special event. It was pretty devastating actually, standing around outside the shop watching everyone inside enjoying themselves at a private event eating that cake that…

Colourful Afternoon Tea at Refuel, Soho Hotel

I recently had to explain the concept of Afternoon Tea to my Mum (who lives in Germany). The only thing that came to mind was that you drink tea and eat sweets from a multilayered cake stand. She was not convinced. To be honest it’s so much more. It’s the atmosphere of going into a…

Yasar Halim – A Turkish Bakery in Green Lanes

For a while I lived near Wood Green in North London, and I was quite happy there. It has a rough outer shell, but it can be a really nice spot. Green Lanes was a favourite of mine, as it offered a few very good Turkish restaurants as well as shops and supermarkets . In…

The Little Tearoom – Dartmoor National Park

I love to travel. Especially to visit friends and family. The parents of my good friend Sarah have recently moved from Hertford to Tavistock, near Dartmoor National Park. What other reason than the beautiful landscape of the Moor do I need to visit? I actually had some more important ones: Sarah now lives in Germany and…

Cutter & Squidge, Soho

Being in possession of Malaysian DNA, I usually err on the side of savoury over sweet if given a choice. However, occasionally, something comes along which makes me disregard my natural instincts. Cutter & Squidge used to have a brick and mortar pop up further down Brewer Street in Soho but they have just opened…
