Book online here.

3. Florentines from Fortnum and Mason.

An iconic London treat. Yes they're expensive, but opening that beautiful blue bag is worth it when it reveals chewy fruity chocolaty Florentines. Yum yum yum.

£9 for a small tube. Buy in store, or online here.

5. Meringues from Ottolenghi.

The most perfect meringues in the city.

Buy a large meringue at one of the four shops (Notting Hill, Angel, Kensington or Belgravia) or pick up a mini bag online for £4.50.
