Hans & Gretel, London (Review)

I was inundated with messages about our latest trip to Hans & Gretel, so I thought I'd throw together a post about our experience.

Where to go

The closest stations are Chalk Farm and Camden Town – they’re about the same distance but Chalk Farm is probably the best option during peak times as Camden get super busy (just check accessibility first). You’ll find it at Unit 91, Camden Market (North Yard), NW1 8AJ (near the Amy Winehouse statue).

When to go

Get there early because it gets busier as the day goes on, especially if you want to sit inside the small wood cabin tree and not in the main area where the chairs are high and not so suitable for younger children. You can’t reserve any seating either.. I’d also probably avoid it during the weekends as its not a huge place.

What to get

They have a small selection of Gelato on offer as well as crepes, waffles and beverages but the highlight of the cafĂ© are the chimney cakes (which are basically like swirly pretzels filled with ice cream). You can also personalise your base with a choice of sprinkles and sauces. There’s also a wall of sweets too!

We had the most random concoction – the half chimney cake filled with Kinder Bueno sauce, mango ice cream topped with strawberry sauce and dusted with rainbow sprinkles and a side of candyfloss. I don’t know how but it tasted amazing! I could chug the Kinder sauce all day long! When making your selection I’d say go big or go home! Did the dessert look Instagrammable? No, not really. But who cares! It was delicious
