Popular Bakeries In London
In the UK, especially in London, the melting pot of multi-ethnic cultures, it is still fun to develop a delicious bakery here. The bakery can not only serve as a breakfast shop, but it is also very appetizing to buy a few breads to eat when you have nothing to do. Here are a few popular bakeries in London worth trying.
1. Aux Pains de Papy
This is a French country-style bakery that is said to start with long queues in the morning, near King’s Cross train station. Every day, the bread with traditional southern French flavor is hand-made on the spot, so that you can feel the three irresistible sensory temptations of sight, smell and eating in the store.
Its croissant has long been regarded as the No. 1 bakery in London by diners. It is crispy on the outside and tender on the inside, and the aroma of butter is full of butter. You must buy it when you go to the store. In addition to bread, there are many good French desserts worth trying.

2. Brick Lane Beigel Bake
There is such an American bagel shop called Brick Lane Beigel Bake in Brick Lane Market in East London. It is said that the owner is Jewish. Although the store is inconspicuous, it is an "influencer" snack bar that cannot be missed when visiting London.
When you go to this store, you must buy the signature flavor Salt Beigel. The marinated meat is very tender, smooth and refreshing, served with a traditional English mustard sauce, and a slice of pickled cucumber. Other flavors like salmon stuffing and cheese stuffing are also super tasty and cheap.
But it's not easy to buy, usually you have to queue up, fortunately, the business hours are long, so it is strongly recommended to buy several flavors at one time and enjoy them slowly!
