Located on Francis St this is one of my favourite cafés in Leicester! Calling it a café is probably not correct actually, this is most definitely cake shop! In fact it is a macaron and cake boutique and it is as wonderful as it sounds!
This is a tiny little shop, on the lovely stretch of shops and cafes that is Francis St/Allandale Rd in Stoneygate. There are a few tables in a beautifully decorated setting. The décor is very well thought out, with lots of pastel colours and flowers which create the perfect backdrop to their stunning cakes.
The cakes and patisserie items are beautifully decorated and look very elegant! And honestly they taste as good as they look! I had a salted caramel chocolate cupcake and my boyfriend had a white chocolate and hazelnut one, both were amazing with some really light cream on the top, and the best bit? They are really reasonable at about £2.50 a cupcake! I’ve not tried the pastries or macaroons, but they look equally delicious.
This little shop was founded by Naeem and Nailah, a couple who have travelled across the world tasting sweets and this inspired their cakes. They started the business from their home whilst keeping up day jobs, and now they have a successful business, often selling out of their popular cakes by the end of the day! They make the products fresh each day, and also offer a range of hot and cold drinks to have in the café.
Overall this really is an exceptional cake shop and I highly recommend you to visit!
