There are more cafés in London than you can shake a teacup at, but few have the power to make people literally stop in their tracks.

L'ETO - with branches in Chelsea, Belgravia and Soho amongst others - does just this. Their array of delectable cakes have people practically licking the window in appreciation.

LETO-1

And it gets even better when you venture inside. As well as the cakes (all homemade), there are a selection of chocolate truffles, and healthy yet hearty salads for a that bit of savoury before you indulge in the sweet.

If you happen to be passing in the morning, it's worth trying their new breakfast menu. From avocado on toast to fluffy pancakes to quinoa porridge, there is something to cater to every fancy. Their freshly squeezed juices are delicious too.

LETO-3

Part patisserie, part chocolatier, part fresh and vibrant café, it has swifty become a firm favourite for us Young Ladies About Town. See you there for breakfast, a light lunch of afternoon tea (most likely all three)!

Make brunch that extra bit special with this recipe...

Croque Monsieur

Serves 1

Ingredients:

  • 1 whole egg
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 tablespoons of butter, divided
  • 2 thick slices of bread
  • 2 teaspoons of mayonnaise
  • 2 teaspoons of Dijon mustard
  • 4 thin slices of ham
  • 2 slices of Gruyere cheese

Method

1. In a shallow dish that will be large enough to dip your sandwich in, whisk the egg with some salt and pepper.

2. Melt 1 tablespoon of butter in a frying pan over medium-high heat. Spread the mayonnaise and mustard onto one slice of bread. On the other slice, layer the ham and cheese. Place the slices together to enclose the ingredients.

3. Carefully and quickly, dip each side in the beaten egg, and place in the hot buttered pan. Cook until golden brown on the bottom, then melt the remaining butter in the pan. Flip the sandwich, and cook until browned on the other side.

Everyone makes fun of how rigid I am as a parent. Whether it’s to my face or behind my back, I know that the thing about me, the thing that people snigger about, is how neurotic and to-the-second I am about timings, how strict I am about bedtime routines, about sitting in high chairs for meals, about not getting a toy back that has been thrown out of a buggy more than once, about not napping after 10.30am so that the lunchtime sleep goes well.

You know my sort, I’m sure. Maybe you’re the same.

But we are living back at home with my parents at the moment, while there is building work done to our house, and being around my mother has had a surprising effect.
