We find it almost impossible to walk by its cheerful yellow facade without popping in for a small treat.

Primrose Bakery began life in 2004 when friends Martha Swift and Lisa Thomas started selling homemade cakes at popular local deli Melrose and Morgan. Their beautifully decorated, light and fluffy cupcakes proved to be an instant hit with the Primrose Hill residents and after opening their first bakery across the road on Gloucester Avenue they have since expanded to two other stores in London’s bustling Covent Garden and Kensington High Street.

The bakery prides itself on creating proper old-fashioned cakes made with high quality ingredients. Flavours range from traditional chocolate or vanilla to speciality cakes such as Jaffa cake flavour, cookies and cream and salted caramel. As well as cupcakes the bakery also takes orders for special occasion cakes, which can be delivered to you on the day.  These show stopping creations look and taste incredible and are guaranteed to steal the show at any party.

If you fancy trying your hand at recreating some of the delicious treats on offer at Primrose Bakery you can now sign up to one of their cupcake decorating masterclasses held at the Covent Garden branch. You can find out more about these on their website. Or you can simply pop in a grab a coffee and a cake (or two) at any of their pretty cafes. We’ll see you there!!

Melrose & Morgan
Two years ago our Christmas got canceled on Christmas Eve -- well the trip we had planned to Switzerland did anyway. It was our first Christmas with a child and you know how important they are! We were devastated. I think the only thing that saved us was Melrose & Morgan, our local deli in ...

Encounters with the Big Cats at London Zoo - Regents Park
London Zoo in Regent's Park is the world's oldest scientific zoo. It also happens to be my kids number one favourite place to visit in London. Wandering around this familiar local haunt it's hard to believe that the doors were first opened to the public way back in 1847. At this time some of the ...

Gallery 196
With its entrance tucked around the corner from the main shopping street in Primrose Hill, this charming shop can almost be mistaken for one of the many pretty homes lining the street - or be overlooked entirely if you're not careful. And yet, it's one of my very favourite shops in the neighbourhood and worth a visit ...
