The Proof


Dalston Square, London
View WebsiteEarn 3X Points

There are baked cheesecakes, pastries, and red velvet numbers at The Proof. But the main reason to visit this Dalston bakery is the profiterole bar. At the small, bright space, lean over the marble counter to pick toppings like warm chocolate sauce, crushed Biscoff biscuits, mini marshmallows, and sprinkles. But the profiteroles—crisp on the outside but air-light, and filled with sweet cream—are so divine on their own, we’d happily inhale them plain. There are a few window seats to have a tender moment with choux pastry and a flat white, but it’s mostly a takeaway setup.
