Violet Bakery + Hackney City Farm
So Violet is this little bakery in Hackney, you wouldn't really know it was there unless you knew, you know? Anyway, it's a must if you're in the area. Just look at that cake!
The bacon and egg SCONE!
Just look. at. it.
The choice was hard, but I decided to go for this fudgey, gooey chocolate cake with a Rum and salted caramel icing. Yep.
It was as good as it sounds.. and more. I actually couldn't finish it all because.. well that sandwhich. So I took half of it back home.. which I later forgot about in my fridge. Between you and me.. stale or not that cake was GOOD.
Hackney is slowly becoming one of my favourite parts of London. Mainly because Freya's there and also because of the markets, the greenery, the cute little cafe & shops..
and the city farm! Seriously. I don't care how old I am, if I can go pet donkeys, goats, rabbits, chickens.. and other farm animals. I'm a happy girl! Especially when living in the city.
You can take the girl out of the country but you can't get the country out of the girl... or something like that?!
I was almost attacked by a goose - she didn't like to have her photo taken. Clearly.
I wouldn't mind a few chickens on my balcony for fresh eggs every morning...
Freya is trying to convince me to move there, so we can go for cake and yoga classes together at a moment's notice but we all know there isn't much convincing to do.. If only finding a place to live in London wasn't so daunting (and expensive - subject for another time maybe.. but how do you find a place without going insane?! huh?)
