Surrounded by books and fragrant with tea, the London Review Cake Shop is the modern answer to London’s long-lost literary coffee-houses. On our menu you’ll find vibrant flavours, seasonally inspired ingredients, bright colourful salads and altogether out-of-the-ordinary lunch options. We have teas to suit every taste, from fresh green teas and complex oolongs to soothing herbal infusions, and serve Monmouth coffee. Our cakes are baked in-house by Terry Glover, with guest cakes by Nick Fu. You’ll find an ever-changing selection at our counter, all of them invitingly homespun and gloriously indulgent.

Visit the London Review Cake Shop at 14 Bury Place, London WC1A 2JL. You can get in touch with us on 020 7269 9045.


The London Review Cake Shop is known for its bold and beautiful cakes. Order from a selection of our favourite recipes.

All our cakes and cookies are baked in our Bloomsbury kitchen by our small team. We work with fresh cream, seasonal fruits, a wide spectrum of spices and a lot of zest. Our recipes introduce fresh flavours to indulgent classics, highlighting the ingredients which inspire us from around the world.

Cake Shop pioneer Terry Glover makes custom cakes upon request, which may be tailored to suit wheat-free or vegan requirements or to celebrate someone special with one of her own hand-painted designs.

Everything we bake is is hand-made with love.
