My London: Sweet treats

January 30, 2012

Hello from Singapore! Thank you so much for your well wishes before I left. I’ve now been here for 3 days and am settling in fine although have not really ventured around the island much. The warm weather (about 31°C in the day) will take some getting use to as it seems to bring on bouts of lethargy – I just feel like sleeping all the time! Or maybe it was the crazy last couple of weeks before we left London that’s tired me out.

I want to continue sharing with you, a few of my personal favourite places to dine at in London, and this post will cover briefly, some of the places I visit for the times I crave little sweet treats.

Name: Monmouth Coffee

Location: 2 Park Street, SE1 9AB (next to Borough Market), also located in Covent Garden

Go for: Really fresh coffee delivered daily from their roasting site in Bermondsey and possibly the best flat white I’ve had in London.

Name: Rococo Chocolates

Location: Photo below show the shop in Motcomb Street in Belgravia but there are 2 other locations around London

Go for: Rococo is obviously a chocolate specialist but I come here for the thick, delicious hot chocolate.

Name: Pierre Hermé

Location: The standalone boutique is located at 13 Lowndes Street, Sw1X 9EX but it is also located in the Selfridges Food Hall

Go for: Macarons, Macarons, Macarons!

Name: Bea’s of Bloomsbury (see my earlier review of Bea’s here)

Location: The photo below was taken at the St Paul’s store but it has various locations around London

Go for: The best red velvet cupcake in London

    I agree with you on Monmouth, love the Covent Garden shop, so tiny but perfect! Hope you are settling in well and hope to hear some news of where you eat over in `singapore too 🙂

      Thanks Laura, hopefully I’ll start posting on Singapore food soon, once I get a feel of where to go for good food over here!
