L’Eto Caffé is a beautiful little café situated next door to Hummingbird Bakery on Wardour Street in Soho with the most fabulous window display of cakes and desserts that you can feast yours eyes on. I discovered it during my months as an intern at a busy PR office in Soho where I indulged in their Honey Cake on a regular basis when cake felt like the only option for survival! However, I had a meeting with my personal tutor from university, having recently finished, to discuss the future, and I decided that one of L’Eto Caffé’s fabulous-looking cakes would be the perfect present to say thank you for all the help I had received throughout my time at university. Therefore, I chose a decadent Chocolate Cinnamon Cake that stood tall in the café window. After all, who doesn’t love a good chocolate cake, and one with a cinnamon twist at that?!
Unfortunately, it did turn into the leaning tower of cake after fighting my way through the bustling crowds of Oxford Street, but it most certainly did not affect the taste. The sponge was rich and moist, and the chocolate was deliciously decadent. Each mouthful was a chocolate, heavenly dream. This was made even better by the chocolate and cinnamon cream that sandwiched the chocolate layers together. I would honestly class this as the best chocolate cake I have ever had the pleasure of putting in my very welcoming mouth! It looks the part and tastes the part, and you can not ask for much more than that!
If you happen to be in the area, or fancy a coffee date with a special twist, I would thoroughly recommend L’Eto Caffé to fulfil your sweet cake cravings any day. Their cakes are wonderful and the service is warm and friendly. A visit to L’Eto Caffé could never leave you disappointed.
