“Best bakery in possibly the UK”
Reviewed 18 June 2014

I say this because this place has food that is value for money, food that is made with love, food that has such attention to detail, taste and just sheer class without any pretention. I'm really lucky to have a place like this near me, one of the few bakeries that I don't think you can replicate anywhere else - unless you clone Dimitra.

“Best bread and breakfast in London”
Reviewed 4 May 2014

I'm lucky enough for this to be my local bakery/café/restaurant. The bread is, without a doubt, the best in London and it's a great place for a sandwich or a light lunch (although I'm looking forward to the return of evening openings for dinner).

The breakfast is above average quality and below average price with Les Douceurs one of the few cafés to offer the ambrosia which is black pudding.

“Excellent”
Reviewed 18 March 2014 via mobile

This place is lovely. Everything hand made, fresh and beautiful. The cakes are like pieces of art, but the standout by far is the bread. AMAZING BREAD.
The coffee is usual for London (i.e. below par) but otherwise, this is an absolute gem.

“Dimitra is the new Cupid!”
Reviewed 17 February 2014

The best Valentine's dinner I have ever had with my husband, thanks to Dimitra's special talent for creating the most wonderful food in an intimate dining space full of warmth and charm. We enjoyed a six course tasting menu on Friday 14th February, full of amazing flavours and cooked to perfection. They say that food prepared with love tastes better; Dimitra's dishes are proof of this. What better way to celebrate this occasion with your loved one? The sea bass was my favourite, and the crème brûlée was something else!
