Discovering new gems that provide a good cuppa T and dreamy gluten free goodness is one of my fave things to do. Why? Because I am the happiest gal when around baked goods, especially when they are kind to my tum.
I know you also share my love for cake, tea and gluten free delights, so I am taking you along to Pearl & Groove to brighten up this grey Monday in London.
I first discovered P&G last October at Stylist Live, I had a chinwag with Serena whilst devouring the most delicious banoffee cake (I even remember what cake it was, it was that tasty). Due to how badass P&G are, they have recently opened up shop in Portobello Road. Perfect little haven of dreams for GF (and non GF) cake lovers.
The Pearl & Groove cave of wonders is complete with a whole load of events including life drawing, flower crown making, exhibitions, comedy stand ups AND prosecco. What more could ya want?
^ Need this gem in my house. The shop has only been up and running for a few months and is already jam packed full of new art, foodie start ups and a whole load of cute bits and bobs.
All the dreamy lookin’ cakes are gluten free, made with almond flower as a tasty alternative, I think I prefer it to standard flour anyways. They also bake super healthy refined sugar free and dairy free so nobody misses out on the fun.
All bakes are whipped up in the shop by the lovely Flo, so everything is super fresh and keeps emerging from the kitchen aaaall day long. Also, FYI they have Deliveroo so if you are in the area HELLO cake right to your door step. Absolute genius. Shame I live on the other side of London, but probably a blessing in disguise!
After ogling over everything in the shop, I settled down with an Earl Grey Tea cake and a matcha latte (oooh so fancy) it was a dream.
It also helps that Pearl and Groove is surrounded by pastel coloured streets like this.
Oh Notting Hill, I luv u.
