Monarch Cakes and The Acland Cake Shop are highly recommended. Try to huge French Vanilla Slice or Glaced Fruit Tarts. Delicious. Readings bookshop is also a must visit. A coffee at Veludo on a sunny winter afternoon was enjoyable.

No poppyseed Gugelhupf? Sacré bleu!! Sadly the traditional East European favorites are not replaced by the more popular creamy delights.
