We all have the good fortune of living and studying in London and so readily available to all of us are some of the best shops, cafés and fashionable establishments in the whole world. As an introduction to some of the MODO recommended places in London I thought I’d start by telling you about some of my favourite places in London.
“The Chanel of ribbon and trimmings shops” Red Magazine
Needs no introduction, just visit their Oxford Circus shop, you will fall in love several times over!
Hummingbird Bakery brings American cupcakes to London; their three stores stock delightfully sweet and beautifully decorated cakes, cupcakes, brownies and pies. They even have a daily cupcake giving you the perfect excuse to visit again and again. Their cute pink and brown décor is adorable and makes every cupcake a relaxing and enjoyable experience. Although be prepared to queue if you go to their Portobello store on a Saturday.
Comptoir Libanais is a stylish and modern Lebanese café, offering delicious Lebanese food at an affordable price, in bright and colourful surroundings. You can choose between meze, wraps, and tagines or perhaps all of them! And make sure you try their halloumi bread; it’s cheesy, salty and absolutely delicious. Also, they have an unusual selection of lemonades, which are all delightfully refreshing; my favourite is the pomegranate and orange blossom.
