Artisan cakes, pastries and chocolates
Tucked between buzzy, Arab-friendly Edgware Rd and Hyde Park is a village-like London pocket marked by pretty-pretty best-kept-secret Connaught Sq — 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'd see at Ottolenghi [see entry], eye-catchingly beautiful cakes and pastries haughtily show themselves on plates positioned at various heights for mouthwatering, theatrical effect. Prices reflect the high quality on display. Owned by a trio with a pedigree stretching from Agent Provacateur to Liberty. Opened October 2009. Tube station: Marble Arch. A further outlet can be found in Chelsea, just off Sloane Square at Unit 10, 186 Pavilion Road.
