Hackney - 373 Helmsley Pl, London E8 3SB
The Bread Station has two top chefs behind it - you may remember Christoffer Hruskova from his Michelin-starred Clerkenwell restaurant North Road. He teamed up with leading Danish baker Per Brun to open this Danish bakery in London Fields. Order Danish Rye or maybe Hackney seeded loaves along with the marvellously named Hindbaersnitter - raspberry shortcake slices.

Soho & Camden
Chin Chin may have made their name from their experience of making ice-cream in front of you using liquid nitrogen, but they’ve also got plenty they can deliver. There are ice cream pies, cherry pies, brownies, cookies and more. And because they freeze with nitrogen, they can even delivery their ice cream by post!

Soho - 20 Brewer St, London W1F 0SJ
