Heads up! We’re working hard to be accurate – but these are unusual times, so please always check before heading out.
Bread is a food staple. It’s something that many of us eat every day. We don’t even think about it. Instead, we pop slices into the toaster and smear it with our favourite spreads and get on with our day. But as one of the oldest man-made foods on the planet, perhaps we owe it to bread to care more. Luckily, London’s best bakeries know this and in the last decade there has been an explosion of artisanal loaves in the capital (seriously, who isn’t making a sourdough these days). However, there are loads more than the sour stuff on offer – fruit loaves, rye bread, brioche. It’s why we’ve made ourselves very bloated and tasted some of the capital’s best loaves. Here are the best breads in London.
