This bohemian cake shop is just off Old Compton Street, Soho’s main thoroughfare and the heart of the gay scene. All the sweet, tasty delights come with lashings of unpretentious character and charming service.

I’m a big fan of the vanilla slice—one of many wonderful homemade cakes and pastries full of all the lovely dairy and gluten that the faddy types tell us we should be avoiding. Piffle, it never did any of us harm.

“Nestled between the elegance of Mayfair and the creativity of Soho, the Oscar Wilde Lounge is the space where great minds came together to change the world. It is in this very room that Oscar Wilde fell in love with Lord Alfred Douglas, Aubrey Beardsley debated with Whistler, David Bowie retired Ziggy Stardust and Mick Jagger, the Beatles and Elizabeth Taylor danced the night away. Dating back to 1865 and formerly known as the Grill Room, the gilded room was renamed in honour of our most famous patron becoming the Oscar Wilde Lounge. Today, this dramatic setting is home to Hotel Café Royal's award-winning afternoon tea service.”
