Our little journey in London

For Cyril’s birthday, we had the chance to organize a beautiful surprise. Let’s quit the pastry laboratory, take a bag and jump into the plane for a night in London ! So let’s go from Bordeaux to London for 24 hours !

Crazy « week-end » at the beginning of the week !

So I just wanted him to rest a little bit, with all the work we had for Christmas in the patisserie. It was such a great surprise ! We even took his son Matheo with us so we could have a real family time abroad.

London : a welcoming beautiful city

Even if it was short, it was nice to discover this beautiful city. Everybody was so sweet and welcoming.

London food and english breakfast

The only thing that is still to understand for us is food. We would love people to suggest us new and great typical restaurants.

For now we just really appreciated the English Breakfast and little typical english pubs to have a beer or delicious hot cider.
