Baking News! Meghan’s Favourite Wedding Cake Baker Is Opening A Wine Bar

Fancy a royal slice of cake? Well we can’t quite promise you’ll be chomping your way through Meghan and Harry’s ol’ wedding cake (it’d probably be a little stale by now anyway…) but the Hackney bakery behind the royal’s cake is set to open a larger site, and they’re bringing the wine!

The Soho Brunch Spot We Can’t Stop Waffling On About

Oh Old Compton Brasserie, you had me at brunch! If you know anything about London’s restaurant scene, you know their brunch game has to be hella strong in order to keep the punters coming back for more.

While we can’t guarantee you’ve saved yourself any beloved annual leave for a quick getaway from these dreary months, Autumn does have its perks. The leaves begin turning to a crisp auburn, fluttering down from the branches, and there’s a faint lingering scent of pumpkin spiced lattes coming from every angle, but hey, that’s the perk of strolling through London’s finest parks.
