Marylebone High Street is an area I always gravitate to, for a light lunch at La Fromagerie, followed by a browse around Daunt Books, which has a discerning, hand-picked selection of titles in a space that has the feel of a reading room or library, with lots of warm carved wood and a huge skylight.
I’m a chocoholic, so I always go to Rococo. I am particularly drawn to its Coffee & Cardamom Wafers. And I love the packaging, with vintage drawings of marine life and nature. The interior of the store. is beautiful, too: it has an extraordinary sea-themed chandelier.
