From humble beginnings, it is great to see how Miss Poppy Cakes have evolved from a small stall at the Camden markets, to a fully functioning cafe and cakery in the heart of this very same area.
I had the pleasure of experiencing my very first Miss Poppy cake at the markets when its delicious appearance caught my eye as I was exploring the markets with a friend. The winner out of the cakes on display was the salted popcorn caramel cake. Since then, I was hooked and found myself picking up a slice every second week at the stand.

Flash forward to 2017 and the cakes that tourists and locals have come to love have been homed in a quirky little nook of a store, lit by stunning drop lights and an array of mirrors. The colour scheme is so warm and inviting and really does provide an escape from the hustle and bustle of the markets, especially on a Saturday.
Stepping into the venue you almost feel like you have been transported into a quirky dolls house, purely in terms of the character pieces such as wooden chairs, teapots, paintings and wallpaper.
Miss Poppy Cakes Cafe does not only cater for those with a sweet tooth, but has taken a leaf out of many London cake-to-coffee eateries and has a selection of cabinet paninis, sandwiches and savoury quiches. They have also gotten into the various spiced latte trend with available options of a tumeric and matcha coffee also on the menu. Teas include traditional favourites like earl grey, fruit teas and variations of green teas, including the matcha variety.

Miss Poppy Cakes Cafe is open seven days a week and has something for everyone. A great place to pop in on the weekend to load up on some delicious paninis and cakes and also a fantastic atmospheric cafe to dine in and enjoy. Escape into the Camden Markets and give this little cafe a try when you are next in town, you won't be disappointed.
