You will find Balthazar Boulangerie on Russell Street

Covent Garden in Central London seems to be getting busier and busier. If you want a break from the crowds then you could do a lot worse than visiting Balthazar Boulangerie on Russell street (not far from the opera house)  for a high quality bread based snack. Both sweet things and savory things are on offer.

Sticky Buns at Balthazar Boulangerie

Enjoy the finest Sticky Bun  you will have ever tasted. A cinnamon spiced firmly textured bun topped with very sticky pecan and treacle syrup. Have this for lunch as this is very filling!

Sit on one of the plush red leather stools and enjoy a coffee or Chocolate Chaud listening to civilized classical music being played delicately through the shop.

Enjoy the Balthazar Restaurant

Next door to this café is the New York style Balthazar Restaurant  that the  Boulangerie belongs . There is a walk in service so there is not need to book – however you may find long queues – certainly this was the case on my visit. If you have been to the one in New York then you will find this to be identical. So if you have enjoyed your coffee and pastry you may just fin yourself having dinner too.
