Yay! Here it is finally, the second part of my mom’s and I city trip to London with some of the nicest places we discovered over the weekend. This list is not meant to be exhaustive and never will be. London being the kind of city where cool places just pop up in seconds I feel. Enjoy, and as usual I hope you’re hungry! <3
In Shoreditch and around:
Leila’s Shop: A sweet cafe and grocery serving simple and fresh food. Menu is small but appetizing.
O’Dell’s store: Fine quality goods for the classiest of our men.
Luna & Curious: Attached to Odell’s, a little boutique full of pretty paper goods (i.e. Rifle Paper & co – my all time fave!), books, jewels and home accessories.
In House Studio: Well actually it was a creative design studio in the middle of Shoreditch but what a pretty one with all these green apples ad rustic decoration.
BoxPark: I told you about it some time ago (here). Went and liked it again this time ; ).
In Soho and Fitzrovia:
The Riding House Café: North of Oxford Circus, a brasserie type of restaurant. Brunch is amazing there (and popular so arrive quite early)! Take one of their fresh juices, it’s excellent!
Kaffeine: In front of The Riding House Cafe, a little cafe and expresso bar with a relaxed vibe. Apparently very good coffee too.
One Leicester Street Hotel: The hotel we stayed in. Great location, beautiful (yet small) room with, as a bonus, L’Occitane products and Skinnymini teas, delightful!
In Chelsea and Parsons Green:
Hally’s: I still dream of the eggs Benedict I took that day at Hally’s, magic (the English breakfast my mom had doesn’t look bad either, hun?!). Well worth the ride all the way to Parsons Green, this small restaurant (again arrive early, people are queuing) serves DELICIOUS and fresh food in a Californian-inspired set up. Gosh, I wish we had something like this here!
Gail’s: Artisan bakery selling wonderful bread, cakes and pastries (this chessecake… mmmmh).
