A list of the 22 most Instagrammable desserts in London you have to try. From the warm and delicious Humble Crumble to the cold candy-floss of Soft Serve Society, here are the best desserts in London — the perfect content for your ‘Gram.
Humble Crumble serves a decadent crumble dessert that perfectly blends creamy filling with crispy toppings. If you love crumble, then a visit to the Old Spitalfields Market or the Borough Market is essential.
Saint Aymes – Hyde Park Step into the pink wonderland of Saint Aymes, one of the most delicate and floral-infused luxury dessert places in London. Owned by two sisters, the cafe is set around the concept of “magic you can touch”.
You could walk away with heart palpitations by merely looking at the menu, but the ‘just a spoonful of sugar’ churros are worth the risk. The treat includes three cinnamon churros dipped in strawberry, Belgian chocolate, and sprinkled pink.
There are the two-tier cakes, which are gently indulgent in appearance, and the red velvet cupcakes that look as soft as their names suggest. The baked treats are so beautiful that it feels like a sin to consider biting into them.
People flock from all around the city of London to taste (and photograph) the UK’s first candyfloss, ice-cream cones. The experimental parlour serves some of the best desserts in Covent Garden for sweet junkies.
Soft Serve Society – Shoreditch Out of all of the tasty items on their menu, the Cloud 9 and matcha ice creams are fool-proof. The Cloud 9 has a fluffy cloud of candy-floss balancing on vanilla ice cream and strawberry sauce, with popping candy offering an extra crunch.
Imagine bright colours neatly moulded into a sizable treat. With the crunch of a cookie and the melting sensation of a creamy filling, Yolkin’s ice cream macarons are both mouth-watering and inventive. Even better — they photograph beautifully!
