Cutter and Squidge

Cutter and Squidge is a place I visit on a regular basis. No, I mean it - regular means once a month or more! Love their cakes, their bisquies and I can't wait to take some of my friends there! Located in Soho, Cutter and Squidge was founded by two sisters. Their philosophy is using [...]

Spring in London

We've spent the last few months in London visiting some new places and revisiting some of our favourites. One of our guilty pleasures is breakfast at The Mandarin Oriental Hyde Park overlooking Hyde Park! Last month we had the waffles, made to order and absolutely delicious. The Mandarin Oriental Hyde Park is the perfect place [...]

Favourite bakeries in New York

I discovered some new places this time round in New York and thoroughly enjoyed these experiences! Bouchon Bakery in Time Warner Centre I have already been to but the two others were mere coincidences that I happened to be walking past of. Bleecker Street was my favourite new spot in New York this fall. Filled [...]

Bar Boulud is one of my favourite places in London. People don't even realise it is located below the Mandarin Oriental Hyde Park - it is hidden and easily missed but it has one of the best atmospheres a restaurant can have in London. The bar, the friendly staff and location give it a great [...]

Breakfast with Chantal Coady at The Rococo Chocolate Cafe

Chantal Coady's story is a chocolate fairtytale coming true. Now 32 years old, Rococo Chocolates have recently started serving breakfast at their Motcomb Street location (has to be ordered and booked a day in advance) but the all day cafe serves some delicious cakes and chocolates from Chantal's book. We attended a blogger's breakfast last [...]

American Bar at The Beaumont

We visited the place as soon as it opened last year and felt service was still slow and not up to the mark. However, it takes time for a new hotel to settle and now it is definitely one of my favourite places in Mayfair. Understated, hidden and not overpriced - this bar is excellent [...]
