Artisan cakes, pastries and chocolates
Tucked quietly between buzzy, Arab-friendly Edgware Rd and Hyde Park is a village-like London pocket marked by pretty-pretty Connaught Square — the armed guards testify to Tony Blair's continued residence — and its genteel tributary of shops, Connaught St, which is where you'll find this excellent, rustic-like and rather precious tea room, patisserie and chocolatier. Not unlike what you've see in a window display at Ottolenghi [see entry], eye-catchingly beautiful cakes and pastries haughtily show themselves on plates positioned at various heights for theatrical effect. Everything is at least very good here, with much that is exceptional, including the sugary cinnamon bun. Opened October 2009 by a trio with a pedigree stretching from Agent Provacateur to Liberty, who then sold the business in early 2015. The new regime, but with the same chef, re-opened on 27 March 2015, and it's even better and more cake-adventurous than it was before. Cake production has a certain link to small cakes-and-pastries chain Gail's. Tube station: Marble Arch. Sadly, Cocomaya shut for good in May 2017.

    All of a very good standard, especially the chocolate-pisatchio croissants and the cinnamon buns.
