When we think about London bakeries we tend to leap to those of a French persuasion or more so now the more elaborate cupcake making options. But there are some amazing Italian Bakeries in London, some more new than others but all doing great things for breads and cakes.
Our top three are below.
Exeter Street Bakery

A huge favourite of many for a more special take away meal, Ottolenghi's makes very special butter croissants and a great double-baked chocolate mousse cake, but bread, tarts and biscuits are all equally perfect. There are two Ottolenghi's in London but you can also buy online with free postage for orders over £50.
