 If the weather is not one your side then you can head to Pizza Pilgrims to enjoy some of their delicious slow proved Neapolitan Pizza. Dogs are welcome and we are massive fans of their Aubergine parmigiana pizza and if you still have room their Nutella Pizza Ring it's the ultimate in indulgence treats.

Marby & Elm

 We always love to check out and support other independent stores whenever we can and we are big fans of Marby & Elm when it comes to finding the perfect greeting card (we always stock up on them whenever we are there!). The letterpress stationery and design shop is beautiful and all their products are designed in the shop.

Botanique Workshop

 We couldn’t pop to Exmouth market and not pop in and see our friends (along with shop dog Goose) at Botanique Workshop. We featured their Stoke Newington store in our previous post but their space on Exmouth market was their original store and holds the most amazing array of beautifully sourced gifts, flowers and plants.

Gail's Bakery
 
 
Now we normally only feature 5 places to visit but we couldn’t go without telling you about the amazing treats at Gail’s Artisan Bakery. Your not allowed inside with dogs, however they do have an outdoor seating area and all their drinks and pastries can be taken away. Their hot chocolate (which also comes in a vegan option) is out of this world and at this time of year we can all do with a little treat.

Plus all of their takeaway cups are now lined with BioPBS which is made from sugar cane waste and is biodegradable and compostable at room temperature. Being made from sugar cane waste, edible food crop is not sacrificed in the manufacture process.
