Pretty cakes, girls and deco is what you get in this lovely little shop in my street! Just opened about a month ago and I am addicted. These cakes are so ridiculously good that I would travel miles and miles to come and get them. On top of this, they are beautifully presented almost like a piece of art. For £47 you can have a pre ordered box of 12 cakes and if you buy a single one they are £3,95. Not cheap but they are worth it! Do check them out please!  341 Portobello Road, London, W10 5SA | Mon – Fri, 9.30am – 6pm, Sat, 10-6pm & Sun, 11-5pm | £££ | Website

Sex, Coffee & Rock n Roll in what is says outside their ‘shop’ which makes you curious… I was contemplating what to do and peeking inside (drawn in by the red lights) and then the nice guy at the counter persuaded us to come in and check it out. We first had an espresso in their upstairs bar (which was seriously good) and we then moved down into their tiny little basement floor for an Espresso Martini. Love this concept of coffee & cocktails which makes it the perfect stop for after dinner. You leave your restaurant after dessert, head here for a great coffee of any kind and then have a few cocktails downstairs to finish off a great evening. However, I just read on their website that they offer food of all kinds during the day as well (from porridge and eggs to salads, cold meats, filled croissants and soups) There are two other Grinds in London (Picadilly and Shoreditch). I am in Love.
