London is a place sprinkled with many bakeries and patisseries. Here is a short list of places where you can find the best pastries in the city. 

Violet Cakes

This modest shop boasts its mouthwatering cinnamon buns that are so popular that they are sold out by lunch. The charming little café is run by a Californian named Claire Ptak and it features an open kitchen with and big-table shared seating area upstairs. One of the highlights of the shop is its amazing vanilla cupcakes that sports a different icings every season but their salted caramel icing is a favorite all-year- round.

Dominique Ansel

The shop is a titular Belgravia bakery of the French chef, Dominique Ansel. It introduced to London the infamous Cronut which is actually a fusion of croissant and doughnut. Ansel crossed the Atlantic following the success of the hybrid pastry in the original New York bakery. Though it seems unusual, the pastry is spawning quite a line in the corner of Elizabeth Street in London.

Maison Bertaux

Next stop is the vintage patisserie of Maison Bertaux. You can visit the 1870s memory lane through the retro vibe of the shop as the deep history of the bakery brings you back in time. According to Visit London, the patisserie was founded on 1871 and up to this day, they are still producing some luscious fruit tarts, indulgent pies, creamy eclairs and marzipan figs.

Belle Epoque Patisserie

When it comes to authentic French pastries, Belle Epoque Patisserie is one of the best places to go. It is one of the few bakeries in London that boast of genuine cakes, quiches, and traditional French bread. The place is run by the husband and wife team Eric and Hulya Rousseau. Aside from sugary creations, patrons can also enjoy light lunches and amazing Parisian coffee.

Aux Pains de Papy

When you ventured out near the King's Cross station, Aux Pains de Papy is certainly a stop you cannot miss. As per Financial Times, this bakery and sandwich bar serves meals for breakfast, lunch and dinner plus good coffee all day round. However, the main attraction of the shop are its wide array of pastries that includes Paris-Brest, éclairs, tarts, macaroons and delicious pains au chocolat.
