Dominique Ansel Bakery, London

After much anticipation, the legendary cronut by Dominique Ansel Bakery has finally made it to London. So the queues started last Friday on Elizabeth Street in Belgravia. After being far too inpatient to queue in New York, and being second time lucky in Tokyo, with Dominique Ansel virtually on our doorstep we had to stop by.

img_4450The cronut of the season is apparently Salted Butterscotch and Cocoa Nib. I say apparently, as it seems we were far too late in the day to taste them ourselves. Arriving in the afternoon in the first week of doors opening, there was really no chance we would get our hands on one. We really should have known better. We were just lucky to make it through the doors and see the sign that 350+ had sold out already.


It still doesn’t make sense why they just can’t make a few more if they know how popular they are, but it was the perfect excuse to try some of the other things on the menu. The DKA is a caramelised layered croissant like muffin with a sweet crunch on the first bite. It would make a delicious breakfast pastry.


Forget dipping cookies in milk, the cookie shot is just pure genius. Tahitian vanilla milk in a warm chocolate chip cookie lined with dark chocolate. The milk is infused with cookie and the cookie is gooey and divine. It has to be eaten quickly so the milk doesn’t seep away.

The Frozen S’more brought back fond memories from Tokyo’s Dominique Ansel Bakery. Torched honey marshmallow filled with chocolate wafer and ice cream on a wooden stick. There’s something special about sinking your teeth into the warm, fluffy marshmallow with a crispy, ice cold core.  Dominique Ansel Bakery London Frozen S'more

The salted caramel éclair was simple, elegant and rather sweet.

Dominique Ansel has a pastry for every occasion and we can’t wait to go back for S’more and perhaps next time we will brave the early morning queues for a cronut.
