ocated in Victoria (or what we like to call the Greyest Part of London), Dominique Ansel has brought his sunny New York bakery and legendary Cronut to London. If you don’t know what a Cronut is or why it’s important, it’s the bastard love child of a croissant and a doughnut, and it’s one of the most Instagrammed things in the world at this point, right behind Kendall Jenner and expensive bikinis. If you can get there before 9am, you have a pretty decent chance of acquiring one for your Instagram, and you can even eat it, if you so choose.
For those less concerned with their social media presence, Dominique Ansel is also a great place in Victoria to pass the time in between train delays. It’s a cute, almost neon-bright cafe with outdoor space in the summer. When it comes to the offerings beyond the Cronut, we suggest trying a simple yet amazing croissant, the DKA (their original sweet pastry – better than the Cronut in our opinion), the croque monsieur, the chocolate chip cookie shot, or the frozen s’mores.
What you do with them is up to you, but we highly suggest you eat them.
