The icing on the cake at Princesshay

In need of a sugar boost to energise you mid-shop? We’ve rounded up our favourite places to grab a slice of something sweet…

Breakfast treats at Carluccio’s Deli

For the ultimate mid-morning snack, drop by Carluccio’s Deli and take your pick from the delicious range of pastries including sweet almond croissants, pain aux raisins and much more.

Traditional tray bakes at Costa Coffee

When you’re on the hunt for yummy goodies, nothing beats a classic tray bake. Pop by Costa and choose from slices of buttery Millionaire’s Shortbread, fruity Raspberry and Almond Bake or rich Chocolate Tiffin – the perfect accompaniment to a punchy flat white.

Freshly baked goods at Chandos Deli

With an ever-changing menu and different, freshly baked goodies popping out of the oven throughout the day, you’ll be spoilt for choice at Chandos Deli. In particular, we love their Blueberry and Lemon Drizzle loaf cake – a delicious blend of zingy citrus and sticky sweetness – a guaranteed winner.

Afternoon Tea at Coffee#1

A strong cuppa (served in a proper pot), a buttery fruit scone, sweet strawberry jam and Rodda’s Cornish Clotted Cream for one – Coffee#1 have created the ideal afternoon pick-me-up for any flagging shopper.

Vegan goodies at Starbucks

Finding a decent vegan cake can be a bit of a challenge, but we reckon Starbucks have got it spot on with their Mini Chocolate & Raspberry Cake. A rich vegan chocolate sponge sandwiched with a layer of raspberry icing and topped with (yet more) chocolate and a sprinkle of dried raspberries. Yum!

Naughty Natas at Nando’s

Nando’s isn’t all about chicken you know. These tempting Portuguese custard tarts are freshly baked each day and make the perfect accompaniment to a mid-morning black coffee (or squeezed in after devouring a plate of Peri Peri, plus sides).
