With the sheer size of the city and the amount of options available. Navigating through London's food scene can be quite the challenge. If it's dessert you are looking for, keep scrolling to find some of London's best.

Dominique Ansel

My favorite bakery in London. Stop by for lunch, free wifi, and the monthly cronut flavor! Also, the bakery has an impressive case filled with amazing "London exclusive" desserts.

What to get: cronut, eton mess lunchbox, cookie shots, and caramel peanut butter mousse cake 
Where: Victoria


The worlds first department store knows how to put up a bakery case. Be sure to take a few laps around the food room before you order; you won't want to miss anything. 

What to get: pastries, cupcakes, large cakes
Where: Knightsbridge

Gelateria 3BIS

While I'm keeping most of my top ice cream recommendations off this list in favor of bakeries and other desserts, I had to add my all time favorite spot. If you are looking for more amazing ice cream, I've got an entire post for it!

What to get: dark chocolate, stracciatella, custard
Where: Borough Market

Crosstown Doughnuts

I happened to wander into this fantastic coffee/doughnut shop in Shoreditch one morning and haven't been able to stop telling people about it. With sourdough donuts baked fresh daily, fantastic flavors, and a {slightly} healthier mini doughnut option, this place is one for the record books.

What to get: sea salt caramel banana, apricot & lavender (pictured), yuzu & passionfruit
Where: Shoreditch

Cutter and Squidge

The perfect little bakery to try something you've never had before. Try their specialty invention, the Biskie, a cookie/cake hybrid filled with buttercream and a variety confections. I highly recommend pairing it with their ice cream!

What to get: biskie with ice cream, huge cake slices
Where: Soho

Pastéis de Nata

Find Pasteis de Nata, Portuguese custard filled tarts, at one of London's many markets! One of my favorites can be found in Portobello Market but these little bites can be found all around the city.

Maitre Choux

One of London's bakery staples and eclair heaven. Almost too beautiful too eat, Maitre Choux is a must for any traveler or local.  

What to get: anything! my favorite was the blackberry (pictured above)
Where: South Kensington
