It has been a while since I've posted, I've been busy with deadlines, work and moving back to London for Christmas so it's always a bit hectic around this time of year. So I've decided to share with you what I've been up to. I recently took a trip to a new cafe/restaurant that's opened up in Tooting called Graveney and Meadow. By day it serves cakes, baguettes and coffee's, then transforms at night to a pub and restaurant serving tapas and cocktails.
My delicious carrot cake, and in the background you may be able to spot my boyfriend's hazelnut brownie, which I can also say was very nice!
This was my second visit to Graveney and Meadow and it will certainty not be my last. So far I've tried their gluten free chocolate cake and the carrot cake, both of which were delicious. The layout of the cafe itself is really lovely, there is plenty of space for mums with buggies but also great for groups, it has a very cosy and welcoming environment. Another aspect of the cafe I loved was that they had some of their products ready and bagged for you to take home, (pictured above) so if you were in a rush and fancied a treat you're able to grab a bag and carry on with your journey (they would also make great Christmas gifts!) I particularly like the look of the flapjacks, pastel meringues and hazelnut chocolate, and they're not too expensive either prices are mostly around the £2 mark.
Have you found any secret treasures like I have in your local area? I'd love hear about them, especially if it involves cake!
