Blondies Kitchen

You may have seen them pop at various festivals, with their huge (and very instagrammable) American style cookies made with signature flavours. Well now Blondies Kitchen have finally arrived in Covent Garden and it's the perfect place to stop by for a sweet treat.

The signature cookies are crispy on the outside, yet chewy and soft in the centre - so each mouthful is just a taste sensation. The giant dark chocolate cookie with sea salt is a personal favourite ~ and there's also a vegan and gluten free cookie on the menu, which is super popular too!

For special occasions such as birthdays, proposals and anniversaries - they even offer personalised messages on their giant cookies. Could they be any sweeter?!
