Treating ourselves at BB Bakery

This is one of my favourite places in London. Tucked away on a side street in Covent Garden, this French tea salon offers ridiculously good cakes. And, you know, tea.

My friend, Grace, introduced us to it a few weeks ago, and I went back the very next week when my sister came to visit because it was one of the cutest places I could think of to show her. It is pricey, but if you’re meeting someone for lunch or coffee and a cake, then it’s a real treat.

I got a BB lunch deal at £18.50: a sandwich, cake and drink. I got fizzy juice, because tea is just dirty water, and a brie and bacon sandwich.

Brie and bacon is one of the top five food combinations you can get, so they’re on to a winner. The sandwiches are served with vegetable crisps, which are nice considering they’re made from beetroot and stuff.

And that was followed by this:

This is easily one of the three best cakes I have ever had. There is chocolate mousse inside, then vanilla cream right in the middle. And there’s gold on it.

The second time, I got this cake:

It is soft on top with caramel in the middle, but the base was quite hard to break. Not as amazing as the Darling cake, but still good! They have a decent selection of fancy cakes and cupcakes, so I’m bound to go back to try another one soon.

All in all, it was a delicious – if indulgent – two courses. It was as filling as going out for a meal, and you’d pay just under £20 in most restaurants for a main and dessert.

They also do afternoon tea, Champagne afternoon tea, and afternoon tea on a big red bus – obviously on my list of things to do this year.
