Butterscotch
At street level, Butterscotch is yet another of London's sumptuous cake emporiums, joining the likes of Bea's of Bloomsbury (whose founder, Bea Vo, it shares) on a trending tide of Instagrammable sugary decadence. Its window display is certainly easy on the eye, and its afternoon tea isn't too bad either...
