Regular readers will be well aware of the fact that there are few things I enjoy more than a slice of cake- and as such I'm always on the lookout for new foodie favourites to try out. A few weeks ago I had the perfect opportunity to pay a long overdue visit to Peyton and Byrne- a lunch date with the lovely Sophie! I've walked past their beautifully decorated Covent Garden bakery countless times over the last year or so, so the chance to sample their menu rather than just gaze adoringly and cake through the window was one simply too good to pass up!
Although I could have sampled one of everything on display on the counter, restraint won the day and I opted for a handmade sandwich (the staple combination of ham, cheese and mustard!), accompanied by some millionaire's shortbread and a hot chocolate. It goes without saying that everything was delicious, and it was lovely to sit down and have a chat in such relaxing surroundings- especially on the first Monday back to work after the Christmas break!
Have you sampled any new foodie favourites recently?
