April 2019: London’s bread makers and cake specialists are on a roll, and we’ve added (almost) a baker’s dozen to our list of must-visit addresses, like the Dusty Knuckle (bread with a mission and a social conscience in Dalston) and Aux Pains du Papy near King’s Cross (whose croissants are the best in town). Elsewhere, Jolene (from the folks behind Primeur and Westerns Laundry) is part brunch spot, part bakery, part small-plates eatery, while cult fave Ararat Bread deals in unbeatable Middle Eastern flatbreads (Baban’s Naan does similar stuff from a hole-in-the wall spot in Highbury).
Whittling down the best dough in the city is no mean feat. From Asian patisseries to cronut auteurs and sourdough specialists – when it comes to bakeries, London is a goldmine. We’ve risen to the challenge and eaten our way through the lot to round up yeasty royalty. Quite literally, actually – because the boujie Hackney bakery that did Harry and Meghan’s wedding cake has made the cut.
