Good bakeries seem to be me and L's thing these days. That and me always waiting for her. I count half an hour late on her part very fortunate. Like the day we met up to go to Flour and Stone. It's a bakery a bit of a walk away from Town Hall station so away from the usual hustle and bustle of the city area. We came so late that all the savoury pies were sold out to our disappointment. No fear. They had plenty of sweets left much to my teeth's dismay.
The bakeries front is clean and well lit with the decor not really going for anything eye poppingly dramatic; rather it's laid back and carefree. The seating is quite comfortable as opposed to many 'hip' cafes around the area and even then, if it's filled, there's always Hyde park which is a few minutes away.

Not too far from the station for those willing to walk, it rewards the calories you just burnt off with even more calories. Not that you'd care. The pastries are delicious and well priced and I'll be back a lot early to avoid missing out on the savouries next time and maybe a good coffee next time.
