I am going to be in London for 5 days in early September. This is my second trip to London in as many years. Last time we happened to stay at a hotel that had a small bakery/ sandwich shop on the way from the Tube station to the hotel so we would pick up little snacks to take back to the hotel at night.
And it was fun trying the various pastry available in London such as the treacle (sp?) tarts and such.
This time it does not look like we will have that as we are staying in the Tower Hotel and I don’t see any “local” shops like that in the area. So it looks like I will have to go find someplace.
Back home I enjoy baking for family.
So the question is what Baked goods or other deserts (and I suppose other foods but mostly deserts) are worth seeking out?
We are NOT foodies and have no perticular interest in “fancy” food. Those of you that do, that is great it is just not our thing. But baked goods and deserts on the other hand our something we are interested in so any advice would be good.
Actually we will be in Germany, Switzerland and Paris on this trip so the same question really applies to those also.
