The government’s ‘Eat Out To Help Out’ scheme offers diners a discount of up to £10 per person, excluding booze, when they eat out from Monday to Wednesday throughout August.
When you hear Eat Out to Help Out, you probably think of what you could save on lunch or dinner. But what you’re forgetting is the most important meal of the day: dessert. From layered crepe cakes, to cronuts, here are five of our favourite dessert spots taking part.

Crosstown Doughnuts & Coffee
There’s no denying that Gregg’s can make a great jam doughnut. But imagine that great little doughnut went to a self-improvement seminar and two TED talks on how to unlock its full potential and you end up with Crosstown’s homemade raspberry jam doughnut. With that being said, you don’t want to miss out on the chocolate truffle and cinnamon scroll either. With prices starting at £3.50 for a doughnut, that 50% off will definitely come in handy.
Do you even need a reason to eat ice-cream? Amateurs will say you need sun, but true Londoners will tell you that ice-cream tastes just as good in the rain. And the shaved ice at this bingsoo spot in Soho is no exception. You can get flavours like fresh mango, strawberries, and Oreo. All delicious in, or out, of the rain.
Flour And Flowers
You know what’s better than a peach and double chocolate turnover? A half-price peach and double chocolate turnover. Why? Because that means you’ll have enough leftover for a yuzu and white chocolate choux, and some banana and pistachio cake. Basically, double the amount of cake for the same price? We’re in.
Kova Patisserie South Kensington
We love crepes. And we obviously love cakes. Which means it would be physically impossible to not like crepe cakes. It’s just science. And the ‘mille crêpes’ at this Japanese-French patisserie in South Kensington support our very legitimate theory. They have flavours like Oreo and matcha, as well as a sea salt cheese lava cake which is a fluffy sponge chiffon cake covered in pastry cream and topped with crispy crêpes. Yes, it tastes as good as it sounds.
