Spotted / London / Lily Vanilli Bakery


Columbia Road and The Courtyard on Ezra Street has really become my favorite spot in London. So many lovely gems are tucked throughout, including this super adorable and tasty bake shop with its picnic seating outside. It’s the perfect spot to take a coffee and sweets break away from the hustle of the Sunday market. In fact, I stopped in Lily’s twice that day. Once in the morning for the maple bacon cake, and again in the afternoon for their stuff on toast (aubergine, caramelized onions, and cheddar.)
