The best cinnamon roll I’ve ever eaten and a pizza bigger than me. September’s food finds are in, and there are some crackers.
Ole and Steen are the newest Scandinavian bakery that’s taken London by storm this year. As well as breakfast, lunch and dinner they do a whole load of cakes and pastries including what I would say is the best cinnamon roll I’ve EVER had. Not like your average bun, It’s wider in shape and filled with dots of creamy custard as well as layers of gooey cinnamon sugar. Make sure you get a glance at the big versions they do that feed about 8 people (or one hungry one if you don’t want to share!). They look crazy good! With 5 across London and another 2 opening this year, go find one and get your cinnamon fix. You won’t regret it.

If you don’t know how big 20 inches is let’s just say it’s pretty big. Homeslice serve 20″ pizzas with quirky toppings all for £20. The menu changes often and you can find things like cauliflower cheese, beef shin and even carrots adorning their pies. Challenge you to finish a whole one.

3. Hotcakes, Angie’s Little Food Shop.
Brunch places are not hard to come by in leafy Chiswick and Angie’s is one to add to the list. A kitsch little cafe doing brunch the Australian way and these hotcakes are part of the menu. Don t be fooled like me and expect sweet pancakes, these and completely different and almost savoury. Until you add the cinnamon syrup of course! Arrive early, it gets so busy.

Oree is a French boulangerie in London doing brunch, snacks and treats. They have a whole load of beautiful cakes and French pastries, as well as a Croque Madame that’ll make all you cheese lovers very happy. Get one of those and a croissant. You won’t go far wrong.
p.s the oven sits at the back of the shop in full view so make sure you go when the almond pastries are going in! You won’t regret it.

A new cafe that has opened in the lovely Neals Yard, Covent Garden. This little place only seats 10 people and if you’re looking for a little sarnie or salad for lunch, or maybe a quality treat that’s not full of E numbers this is the place! Their ethos is seasonal, healthy, great tasting food; and they got that spot on!
