South Kensington's Paul Patisserie

We have been enjoying exploring the various parts of London and all it has to offer...especially tea shops and bakeries. If you know Michael and I, you know our life isn't complete without one or the other! Yesterday, we popped in at Paul's Patisserie tucked in between other quintessential shops/buildings at South Kensington and fell in love with their leek quiche´ and chocolate filled miniature donuts.

As you can see in the photo above, it's quite popular. Inside is a tiny but delightful area filled with every baked delicacy you could ever want. To the right of the entrance is a steep, wooden staircase, winding it's way up into a cozy room where one can sip on their latte while getting lost in their favorite book....or blogging!

With that said, I couldn't resist quickly doodling out a sweet image of a little girl having her very own teatime out front of the patisserie. Isn't she precious? Keep an eye out for her appearing on an upcoming greeting card.

  6. It looks like London is providing you with inspiration. The small amount of pink and blue is a nice enhancement to the cute scene with the little girl. I stayed with my brother many many years ago when he was living in West Kesington. It was my first trip abroad, and London has remained one of my very favorite places. Enjoy.
