Freshly baked goods which will make your mouth water. The doughnuts are HUGE and filled with delicious homemade jams, well worth a visit if you are wandering around borough area on the weekends

Tasty donuts - I tried the vanilla cream donut and it was very tasty. Walked to the bakery from Tower Hill which was very enjoyable!

Visited St John bakery with very high anticipation for those renowned doughnuts - while they were yum, but I wouldn't say they are any different from a supermarket equivalent
