My top 10 places to eat and drink in London

Everytime I head down to London theres nothing I love more than exploring all the different food and drink they have on offer, because theres a hell of a lot - and its usually pretty spectacular so heres a look at my top 10...

Duck and Waffle
I've wanted to visit the Duck and Waffle for well over a year now, from the delicious looking food to the setting 40 floors high with views over the Thames. When we arrived the maître d heard it was our first time at the restaurant so gave Ryan and I a table which looked directly on to the Gherkin which was pretty spectacular. I had fresh orange juice and banana brûlée waffles which were divine, wonderfully sweet and caramelised. Ryan had Columbian eggs which I tried and were also delicious and wonderfully flavoured,
The Breakfast Club
I'd heard so many good things about this eatery, its American themed good wholesome food made from amazing ingredients. It took me ages to decide what to order but I wasn't at all disappointed with the Berry and vanilla cream pancakes, I also ordered a chocolate milkshake which was perfectly thick and creamy.

Cereal Killer Cafe
The most overwhelming place I've ever eaten, it took me so long to decide what to order but eventually I went for the 'Double Rainbow' cereal cocktail with extra party rings on top, and a stacked Nutella hot chocolate - sugar overload. I loved the quirky vibe of the cafe and the staff were all lovely. I was in desperate need of something salty after though to counteract the sugar rush of all my cereal goodies.

Five Guys
Even though we have this in Scotland now, Five Guys is still a real treat. The burgers are so juicy and packed full of flavour and the fries are so crispy and salty - you can really tell they are cooked to order. The drink machine is pretty cool to use as well with hundreds of different drink options - I went for raspberry Fanta and it was fab.

The Hummingbird Bakery
I got the Hummingbird cookbook for my 16th birthday and ever since I've used it to bake different recipes so I was thrilled to finally try some of their cakes - made a little more professionally! I had a slice of rainbow cake which was so moist and looked amazing, and the red velvet brownie cheesecake to go which was also amazing. I would highly recommend checking this place out when your next in London.

The Ivy
For my 19th Birthday meal my Mum took me here and it was divine, I loved the cosy interior and the Covent Garden location. I had the fish pie which was beautifully flavoured as well as a green juice - which was surprisingly good! The dessert was the real showstopper though Chocolate Bombe - a chocolate sphere which melts away when a hot caramel sauce is poured over to reveal a vanilla ice cream, honeycomb and milk foam centre - too good.
My one stop shop for macarons, pretty pricy but so beautifully made and in the most delicate flavours. I love the almond flavour and the raspberry the most, plus the packaging for them is beautiful.
The setting inside Sketch is beautiful, flowers and greenery everywhere and the most amazing pink parlour. I only came for cocktails as theres no way I could afford to eat here! The bathroom is insane with giant eggs as toilets and bird sounds playing throughout - oh and the ceiling is like a rainbow dance floor. I had the peach melba cocktail which was lovely and fruity, Ryan went for the evil genius which was pretty strong an spicy which looked pretty spectacular.
The Chalet on the Roof
Selfridges' seasonal cocktail bar which changes with the season - Ive visited a few times and the cocktails are always lovely and the view over Oxford Street is pretty special to. Perfect for a treat, the food always looks pretty good there as well - maybe next time!
Although this is a chain, I loved how many stores were situated around London and how convenient they were to grab on the go. My fave was the Wasabi box, with extra pickled ginger - so full of flavour.
