I love exploring new parts of London and seeing the creativity and unique ideas the independent businesses are bringing to the local community. Shoreditch is a brilliant example of this, and recently, many other London boroughs are following suite.
Just recently, me and the boyfriend stayed in a hotel in Hammersmith for a weekend in London, and decided to explore what the area had to offer, having only ever visited for the Apollo.
We were looking for somewhere to have breakfast, and just opposite our hotel was this adorable little place. As an Alice in Wonderland obsessive, it would be absolutely sacrilegious for me to walk past a place called Drink Me, Eat Me and not go in.
Cute is the word that comes to mind when trying to describe the Treat Boutique, but it just doesn't cut it. Cath Kidston style florals and candy pastels beautifully embellish the interior, whilst the atmosphere is buzzing and cosy.
The homemade sausage rolls and quiches were tempting and went down a treat, but had to be followed up with a slice or two of the mouth-watering selection of cakes on offer. It's never too early for cake when they look like that.
As well as tasty temptations, the boutique is full of local artwork, crafts and glamorous fashion accessories for littluns.
Even though this is a perfect place for kids, with a froyo machine and a variety of candy toppings and private parties, I didn't feel out of place here. Don't get me wrong, I'm definitely in touch with my inner child, but there's something for everyone here, no matter how old you are.
This is a place that deserves being patronised not only by the local community, but London visitors too. I'm definitely going back and getting my greedy paws on that froyo machine!
