Hey! Just heard about this today, when I stopped by the Dortmund Cakes 'n' Treats. Haven't gotten to eat there yet, but the crowd looked happy and the food looked good!

Right, I'm just saying if the London branch is as good as the Dortmund, you'll have a good time there.

I've tried 6 things here now (two visits with take away cake) and I won't be going back. I'm surprised to hear other people are enjoying the cakes here as I was so disappointed - these cakes aren't like anything else I've had in the UK and not in a good way!

Everything I tried was frankly not good at all, the cake texture was dense and stodgy like pudding (I want nice light, airy sponge). If it had been just one cake I might have thought maybe it wasn't properly cooked but it seems to be their style. Maybe how they like their cakes in Germany. The cream filling/piped on top was a strange thick cream which wasn't very sweet (I like sweet frosting). Even the brownie wasn't very good in my opinion. I didn't try the tarts or any savoury food (the savoury food reviews on Happy Cow weren't good).

That's a shame to hear, because everything looks so good. I was mostly excited to try the croissants and sweet pastries, as I can make good cake myself (although it's always nice to have someone make it for you) but croissant dough stuff seems like a real chore to make. Although I'm thinking of attempting it myself, just to see if I can.

Have you tried the Jus-rol croissant dough in a tin? They do pain au chocolate as well but I tend to just put my own chocolate in the croissants. And Vx have Danish pastries etc.

I went yesterday and tried a bit of holylopez's chocolate cake and it was pretty delicious! I like that it wasn't too sweet.

I had a bagel with tofu scramble in, it was really good! I bought a vegan snickers cake thing as well from there, but I haven't eaten it yet. Which reminds me I must go eat it!

I'd go back.

i was there this afternoon! their pear pie (more like a tart, but whatevs) was delicious. i had two types of croissant (almond and chocolate) on a previous visit, and both were good, if a bit pale. i'll have to try an actual breakfast or lunch menu item sometime.

does holylopez work there?
