Restaurant: Gail’s Bakery – Queen’s Park, London

On a cold and crisp Wednesday morning with a multitude of bags and ready to head back up North, my time in London would only become complete with a trip to Gail’s. I’m going to miss it! A stone throw away from Queen’s Park station is what has become our favourite London coffee shop and bakery, and it’s a real wonder we haven’t written about it before.

The moment you step in to this wonderful place you feel the aura of luxury, quality, and the most dreamy smell of fresh bread. Using the finest and natural ingredients, every item sold is made fresh each and every day on site and they use their own blend of house coffee. It comes at a slightly higher price than your average coffee chain or independent, but we have and never will doubt its worth.

A special shout out to their Chai Latte, which we think is perfect in terms of strength and sweetness – and finding a good Chai isn’t as easy as you might think! From the window display of sourdough loafs and baguettes, to the fridges of yoghurt pots and shelves of sausage rolls, the endless options has had us coming back time and time again, and we’re definitely still not done! We are yet to try their breakfast, lunch and afternoon tea menus so expect more to come of Gail’s in 2018!

    This post is so gorgeously written, I really got a feel for this wonderful coffee stop off! Walking through the doors and inhaling the delicious scent of fresh bread is enough to make your mouth water, even if you're just imagining it like me! So glad you've found it to be worth the price as well – good quality, fresh and natural food coupled a lovely ambience really is worth a few extra pennies!Abbey xx

    Wow this looks so so yummy I’m glad I’m on lunch reading this or I might lick my phone screen�� That almond croissant looks so perfect and flaking I feel like I can almost taste it from thousands of miles away. So lovely! Mary Lane @NewYorkClicheHttp://newyorkcliche.com

    Those yoghurt pots look amazing! I'll certainly head there if I'm ever in the area. Sausage rolls and baguettes are enough to persuade me to go to any cafe and this cafe looks amazing!ALiceLive Life, Love Life and Laugh Through It! adventuresofanarrow.co.ukxx
