Our Sunday afternoon stroll around Soho ended in the perfect fashion at our favourite London bakery, Cutter & Squidge. Having been here before for a themed Hello Kitty afternoon tea and a handful of times for a quick cake and coffee stop, we couldn’t resist the chance to return once more and take advantage of an outstanding offer. Their afternoon tea gift card for two at £39.50 is reasonable enough but a half price offer had us snapping their hands off and coming down on this Sunday afternoon to beat the January blues.
Along with a pot of lychee and peach tea and flat white, the offer consists of a huge slice of cake, two of their famous biskies, four cake truffles and a selection of savoury sandwiches. We chose from the mouth watering display at the front of the shop before taking a seat in the small and characterful store (we know from a previous visit that they also have a downstairs and that we can only assume are using for their current Harry Potter themed afternoon tea).
We started things off with the turkey and cranberry mini buns, closely followed by the cheese and caramelised onions and ending the savoury section with the salmon and cream cheese rolls. Each bite was absolutely delightful and the only criticism we could possibly come up with is that their should have been more savoury and less sweet – we had to take away our slice of cake as we feared not being able to enjoy it as we should after so many sweet treats.
That being said, Cutter & Squidge are known for London’s only all natural bakery and whilst they can’t exactly claim their offering to be healthy, they do keep the fat and sugar content to be at a minimum whilst ensuring everything is still mighty delicious. Everything you see is made from scratch, uses British ingredients and only free range eggs and creamy butter.
Number one highlight of our visit, the day and perhaps the weekend was the chocolate brownie and salted caramels smore biskies! The flavours and various textures are as incredible as they look, especially from the marshmallow smore which added an extra dimension to make this meal one we won’t be forgetting for a long time.
Now back at home and about to tuck into our pistachio and cherry cake, we can’t recommend Cutter & Squidge enough, whether it be for a fully fledged afternoon tea like this or a quick pit stop for a slice of cake. Either way, we’re sure you’ll agree with the various accolades they’ve won as one of the best in the city. We personally can’t find anywhere better.
