Reason 3 is the lack of ‘bakeries’.
I missed them so much in London. Besides the sights and public toilets you never need to search for something delicious in Paris. Bakeries and pastry stores are everywhere. World famous names, a little less known names, charming, cozy, large or small…they are all there! When you visit a city very often you create your own favorite places. That’s why I also have my favorite bakeries in Paris: La Parisienne, Coquelieot en Poilâne and for a delicious bag of madeleines I go to Blé Sucré.
In London, there were also a few bakeries to find, but they missed that cozy atmosphere and local products. I also got the feeling that little bakeries and stores are being overwhelmed by the large advertising signs from brands like the Subway… such a shame. Does anyone know if small businesses get the opportunity to grow in London?
It’s a fact that Paris has a lot more bakeries and pastry shops than London, but Paris also scores some extra points with their macarons and galettes. Both pastries with a history.
The lesson I’ve learned about this is that you have to ” be so good they can’t ignore you”. Stand out in big cities like Paris and London!
Share, share, share! I’m curious about your stories. Who knows a great bakery in London that doesn’t belong to the big names?
Sweet dreams or a really good morning ♥
