Feeling peckish, post Alexander McQueen exhibition at the V&A
in South Kensington, my friend Dylan and I jumped on the London Underground to Covent Garden
; to check out and eat in the renown Primrose Bakery
, just off the central area of Covent Garden’s square.
The yellow fascia of the building beamed happy sunshine (Pretty much the theme of Primrose Bakery.
) and the warm pre-welcome colour continued in store. We were served by a super assertive lady with awesome black-rimmed glasses (I forgot to get her name, poor journalism!
Helped out with my flavors of cupcakes
, I opted for a cake / cheesecake /
brownie that caught my eye and to wash it down, a pot of earl grey
Dylan took a lot longer than I did selecting his cupcake; Dylan is from
Taiwan and it’s the first time he’s celebrated Easter in the UK, for him
it was love at first sight as soon as he locked eyes on the delectable
and beautifully created Easter themed cupcakes,
complete with Easter
rabbit and sparkles
– what more could you ask for!? He took some of the
other flavors back to our flat to try out later, who can blame him,
they’re totally yummy.
Each day the bakery have new flavors as well as their old, classic,
staple favourites such as: Carrot, chocolate, red velvet, salted caramel
and vanilla. B
irthday and celebration cakes are available too, all too
tempting. Whilst sat chatting with Dylan and eating away, a group of
friends came in to purchase some cupcakes for a friend's welcome home
gift, what a sweet welcome home gesture.
Primrose Bakery is Instagram ready
; cute, kitsch and British, this
bakery packs a punch on social media. Their photos are flawless and
ready. They’re good enough to eat.
Dylan and I really enjoyed our cake and tea in a really relaxing
with good magazines
(Art/ fashion/ food) and nice clean
I’ll be back next time I need to step out of London’s hustle
and bustle for a few quiet moments and a nice cuppa tea.
