bakery-hopping in london


Recommended Posts

Im going to london this easter, and want to make sure that I've visited the avant garde bakeries in london, if there is such a thing, and the brits are concerned about the bread they eat :-)

I've found this promising bakery, close to where we are going to stay ; http://www.lepainquotidien.com/

Is there any bakery i "must visit" during my stay? (willing to travel around a bit of course)

Le Pain Quotidien do a really good baguette at the moment - much better than Maison Blanc or Baker & Spice, I think.

However, Baker & Spice (in Salusbury Road, Queens Park/Clifton Road, Little Venice) are good for many other breads, including miche and a potato & rosemary bread. Hard to beat their croissants, too - mind you, it's harder to pay more for one either.

De Gustibus in Borough market (leek & bacon bread) is worth a try.
