St John Bakery 1/1 by Tripoto

St John Bakery

The pleasure doesn't come in a finer form than food: in particular, a plump, warm custard doughnut from the St John bakery in Bermondsey is a must. I'd call this patch around the Malty Street the food mecca of the new Borough Market. The tantalizing sign of pig seems promising and is worth your money. Under the bridge arches near Tower Hill - St Johns serves the best sourdough, mince pies, and, more than anything, those heavenly Eccles Cakes with caramel-burnt bottoms, a filling generous enough even by New Russians’ standard, drunk with soaked raisins – seemed to be waiting there for me. You will love the atmosphere of this warehouse like place.
