Best Places for Dessert in London

The Peanut Butter & Jelly Sandwich from Spuntino, 61 Rupert Street, nearest tube: Leicester Sq.

Dessert is definitely my favourite part of a meal and sometimes, my only part. I’m a firm believer in never eating too much so that you’re too full for dessert.

With a relaxed atmosphere, friendly staff and quick service as well as reasonable prices (a tenner can get you a main and a drink, or better yet a light meal and dessert) it was most definitely worth the trip to SoHo.
