The only way to get to know a city, is to be an insider; to explore places that tourists never hear of, places that aren’t on your typical guides. London is our all time favourite city – we wouldn’t be based here otherwise, duh- and we’ve spent our fair share of time strolling aimlessly, discovering all its hidden gems. So, if you’re spending the weekend in the capital city, don’t miss these places between a ride in the London Eye and a snap with the Big Ben:
Kua Aina: feel the fresh Hawaiian breeze while you enjoy a delicious avocado-teriyaki sandwich & Draugh Big Wave Golden Ale beer; you can thank us later. Carnaby Street & Goodge Street.
Cereal Killer Cafe: yep, you heard it right; definetely not your typical cafe. Located in Brick Lane & Candem, it’s the first cereal-theme cafe in the UK, where you can try crazy cereal from all around the world, humongous pop-tart milkshakes and be a happy kid.
Oddono’s Gelatto: fersh, natural italian gelatto. Oddono’s Ice Cream Parlours are full even during London’s chilly winter. It’s just too good to wait until spring. South Kensington, Hampstead, Battersea, Chiswick.
Humming Bird Bakery: London’s very own version of Magnolia’s Bakery in New York City. As you might have guessed, the red velvet cake & cupcake are a must. There are three in London so whatever sight you’re admiring, the best vanilla frosting in town isn’t too far away: Spitafields, South-Kensington & Soho.
The Breakfast Club: breakfast is the most important meal of the day and if you have it at TBC, you won’t need any other dose of foods. Pancakes, eggs, milkshakes and endless bacon. Just like in our dreams! Soho, South Wark & Shoreditch.
Dozo: for all japanese food lovers, this is your place. One of the most original japanese cuisine menus, and the prices are even better. Also, it’s super cosy. South Kensington & Soho.
