Konditor and Cook – Waterloo


Near Waterloo station there are three small streets, Theed Street, Whittlesey Street and Roupell Street which are three of my favourite streets in London. According to a book I read about the fashion stylist Isabella Blow who lived on Theed Street, they were built in the 1820′s to house florists and hat makers who worked across Waterloo Bridge in Covent Garden when it was a flower and fruit market. They are so quaint and romantic. On the corner of Roupell street is a brilliant bakery modelled a bit on how bakeries where back in the olden days. Their bread is delicious and at christmas you can get mince pies. I just love how everything is so pretty and homemade, I’m a sucker for that kind of thing, you can charge me twice the price for a loaf of bread and I still feel like it’s a bargain.
