Coffee & Cake
It's very hard to walk around Soho and not be tempted by a devilish cake and if it's not a cake then its a bubble tea either one is very sweet and naughty. I'm going to share you a few of my favourite places I like to eat cake first one is Leto. They have a window full of cakes that make's it very difficult to walk past without licking your lips and popping in for a cheeky slice. They do a good selection of fresh juices too juice. The price for a slice of cake doesn't come cheap at around £4.90- £5.20 so consider it a cheeky treat. There's a good mixture and age varies from mid 20's - 40's. Don't go in without trying their delicious Cherry Kirsch £4.90 and Millefeuille £5.20

Another favourite is Princi just a couple of doors down from Leto. It's much bigger and always packed full of shoppers. It's quite famous for its pizza's although I've never tried one myself they're supposed to be really good. Unlike Leto you would need to go inside to look at the cakes along the bar. They have an excellent selection all hand made Italian. There is no waiter service so you need to order and pay at the bar. I chose a delicious Mixed Berry Cheesecake and it was just as good as it looked. Mum chose a fruit pastry with strawberry and custard which she really enjoyed. Expect only the best Italian cakes here. The atmosphere and good cakes makes this place a winner for me. Prices start from £4.50-4.75 and worth every lick.

Maison BertauxThe Queen of cakes because this is one of Soho oldest and most famous bakery. We often choose this place to make our family birthday cakes, Lilly Allen had her wedding cake made here so that just tells you how it good it is. It's not at all modern but more cute and traditional. The crowd is much older than the ones mentioned above and you can see that it has some long standing loyal residents who've been coming for years. Apricot & Almond tart is a favourite £3.80 along with the small mixed tarts £4.20
