The cakes can be on the expensive side, especially if you eat in (good luck with that, seating area is small), but they are consistently good when so many places in London will sell you good cake one day, then complete rubbish on the next.

This is such a cute place! The atmosphere is so welcoming, I loved it. The staff was sweet and friendly to me, and everyone was nice. I got a salted caramel cupcake which was delicious. My friends I was with also said their cupcakes were delicious. Nice place for a treat! more

Seeing that I'm British and been living in California this Bakery is an interesting one to try and was keen to see if the items are ''authentic American''. Well.. They come pretty close! Can't say I am all that impressed though.

Red Velvet Cupcake - The frosting is so sweet and the Cake a little on the dry side. I like my Cakes to be moist. They're pricey too at £2.65 a pop. I thought paying... more
