If you haven’t jumped on the cronut bandwagon yet, well then I advise you to do so immediately!
By now you must have heard of the cronut. If you haven’t, where on earth have you been! The cronut is the croissant-donut phenomenon created by the New York City pastry chef, Dominique Ansel. Having opened his very first bakery in Soho, NYC in 2011, another establishment followed in Tokyo in 2015 and now in Belgravia, London.
The bakery is charming and playful, bringing a modern twist to old-school pastry making.
And you get more than just the cronut here.
Cakes and cookies and muffins and tarts, you name it! All with a unique Dominique Ansel touch.
We made ourselves comfortable in the conservatory area at the back and stuck right in.
Lo and behold, the infamous cronut!
Made with croissant-like dough, filled with flavoured cream, sprinkled with sugar and a giant milk chocolate button to top it all off.
This piece of work is not for the faint hearted!
Best consumed using one hand (you can use two if necessary), open wide and chomp down.
Another favourite, the DKA, a crispy caramelised croissant with flaky and tender interior.
Borderline sugar overload, last on our list were madeleines. Incredibly soft and fluffy with a hint of sweetness. Light as air!
We left the Dominique Ansel bakery a little dizzy from the sugar and giddy with full, happy bellies. It’s a great place to grab a few girlfriends and spend the afternoon with a few cups of tea and lots and lots of pastries!
The bakery is located in Belgravia and the closest tube stations are Sloane Square and Victoria.
