Desserts In and Around London
Dessert Selection

If you have a sweet tooth and are simply after dessert, here are some suggestions of great places in London. These chain restaurants can also be found outside of London. Everyone has their own favourite type of dessert whether it is ice cream, cake, fancy biscuits or a mixture of everything. These are a few places that never fail to deliver and I personally would go there again just for their dessert menu.

1) Las Iguanas

To be honest this Latin themed restaurant is just something else, each component of its menu is fantastic and the staff are always friendly. There are a variety of desserts on offer ranging from cakes to sundaes, something for everyone. The great thing about this dessert menu is that everything has a Latin twist to it. The Aztec chocolate fudge cake is particularly interesting; it is basically a chocolate and orange cake with vanilla ice cream and the twist is that it has been spiced up.

2) Patisserie Valerie

Chocolate Desserts

This patisserie is basically a dessert heaven with all the different options of cakes, gateaux, tarts, mousses and much more. For a full list of their menu and to find the nearest Patisserie Valerie near you have look at their website. I would definitely recommend the double chocolate dream gateau. It is even topped off with a bonus bit of chocolate in the form of a profiterole.

A hot beverage completes the notion of a dessert and you most certainly will find a wide range of teas and coffees to choose from here.

3) Pizza Express

Chocolate Fudge Cake

Yes the pizza is exquisite here but it does not just stop there - the dessert menu is pretty impressive too. The chocolate fudge cake is served with ice cream making it perfect. If you are full you can get dolcetti, which are described as mini desserts to accompany coffee. Very convenient if you just want a little something. Being an Italian restaurant, Pizza Express has a tempting range of gelato and their own version of tiramisu. Everyone is accommodated and a lot of their desserts are vegetarian.
