Welcome

The London Review Cake Shop is brought to life by an eclectic team of people drawn together by a love of soulful food. At the helm is Terry Glover, who has been the manager of the cafe since it opened in 2007.

Terry grew up on the outskirts of Melbourne. Her Irish grandmother taught her how to bake and an international community of neighbours shared their meals with her, sowing the seeds of a culinary curiosity that would take her across the globe. She has now called London her home for two decades.

Terry has studied at the National Bakery College and Leith’s School of Food and Wine. She holds a degree in Business Management and is working towards another in Nutrition.

A tireless explorer of global foodways, Terry is fascinated by the role that food can play as an agent of cross-cultural connection, understanding and celebration. She draws inspiration from London’s myriad local communities and the food cooked in small family-run restaurants, street markets, corner shops and community centres across town, which provides a way to travel through taste. The generosity of people within these spaces, who share not only meals but stories, has changed the way Terry eats and the ingredients she uses.

The welcoming energy of Terry and her team turns customers into regulars and staff into family. She attributes the London Review Cake Shop’s ongoing success to her hardworking employees who motivate each other to push the boundaries in their approach to food. The woman-led team has an ethos based in feminist teachings and a firm investment in ongoing staff development.

Their aim is to bring the spirit of backyard veggie gardens to inner-city plates, dished up with great service and a side helping of laughter.

We’re known for our bold and beautiful cakes, and you can now order from a selection of our favourite recipes. All our cakes and cookies are baked in our Bloomsbury kitchen by our small team. We also make custom cakes upon request, which may be tailored to suit wheat-free or vegan requirements or to celebrate someone special with a hand-painted design.

Everything we bake is hand-made with love.
