Cinnamon Bazaar

Discover Cinnamon Bazaar's selection of innovative and vibrant plant-based dishes where vegans and non-vegans alike can indulge in a four-course vegan menu (£35 per person) inspired by some of India’s favourite dishes-with a modern twist.

We loved the whimsical #AccidentallyWesAnderson style interiors, and we were blown away by the flavours and textures of the chef’s cooking. Highlights include the grilled aubergine with sesame tamarind and peanut crumble, Kolkata style jackfruit curry, Punjabi style curried white peas with Turmeric lemon rice-served alongside spiced potato parathas. Save room for the delicious dessert: Coconut rice kheer (Indian rice pudding!), with chargrilled pineapple and raspberry crumble.

Floozies Cookies

Floozie Cookies is a passion project by pastry chef Kimberly Lin who's worked everywhere from Claridge’s and The Savoy to Dominique Ansel Bakery. Her bakery serves up vegan stuffed cookies in five flavours and a seasonally changing sixth option. We especially loved the Triple Chocolate and Oozy Chocolate Chunk Cookies-as well as the new seasonal special-the Toffee Apple Cookie! You can also order a range of plant-based milkshakes and hot chocolates at the bakery-or by delivery.

Morelli's Gelato

Every morning since 1907, in a tradition continued to this day, the ice cream at Morelli's is made fresh in every store. It began in Scotland when Giuseppe and his young son Mario, arrived from Southern Italy, set off on their bicycles every morning to sell their ice cream–not returning home until every last scoop was sold out.

The first Morelli's Gelato in England was opened by Mario on the Broadstairs seafront above the picturesque Viking Bay in Kent in 1932. Fast forward to 2023, you will find Morelli’s located right in the market building of Covent Garden. There are a large number of vegan friendly options including: dark and rich Venezuelan Chocolate, silky smooth Hazelnut Gelato (made with roasted Hazelnuts and oat milk), creamy and tart Raspberry Ripple, plus delicious sorbets too (lemon, mango and more!)
