Muriel’s Kitchen – Soho: The best coconut frosting in London?

“Seize the moment. Think about all of those women on the ‘Titanic’ who waved off the dessert cart…”
― Erma Bombeck

Is there a better way to enjoy the final few days of London summertime than with a spot of lunch at Muriel’s Kitchen?

Featuring a superbly nutty, sweet potato-infused platter of Goats cheese pizza (AKA: combo WIN!) in the sunlit terrace of Muriel’s Kitchen; which was totally followed by a slab of delicious (swirly frosted!) coconut cake and some soft serve vanilla ice cream…

…The answer is no!

And why so?

Because “Home cooking” in London seldom gets better than this:

You wish you were there…

Should you be lucky enough to stumble across this home-comfort filled gem that overlooks Leicester square, then you will be thoroughly treated to Grandmas cooking a la Muriel; Muriel’s kitchen is a classy cafe, brunch spot, and the perfect ideal dinner date all in one. With a menu that emphasizes wholesome ingredients that are both ‘locally sourced’ and ‘authentic’ – Muriel’s promises real, honest food that has been perfected by generations of family filled kitchen adventures. And better yet, these values today are gifted to Londoners by a granddaughter + her husband who are determined to keep this legacy running throughout Muriel’s’ ever changing monthly menu’s/seasonal specials…

You will also be served by wonderful waiting staff who are completely okay with annoyingly indecisive customers (I am so guilty) who hover around over the home-made cake selection for  extended periods of time, before going on to change their mind, re-deliberate, and repeat – *just to be sure* that they’ve chose the best possible option (guilty again). With that said, here goes a big shout-out to Vlad (our waiter), and to the tanned Asian waiter who somehow remembered me from the last cake-choosing episode) – Sorry about forgetting the second name, but you guys were so lovely!

Warning: If you come here and finally manage to choose something off of the menu, you will most likely change your mind as soon as you see the food arriving for the table next door…Everything just looks so fresh, huge, and tempting! Food envy is likely.

And the cakes…oh, the cakes…

Or more specifically: the frosting

I highly recommend taking out a couple of afternoons and lots of tea. You don’t just come here once. You can’t. There are just too many options. So visit twice, even if it means ordering the same fluffy coconut thing again and falling into the same sugar coma you took home with you the first time… I haven’t even begun to mention the giant scones, bread/butter pudding with custard, and the Dulce de Leche brownies (you heard right) yet! I blame beautiful swirls and a dauntingly delicious display counter…

You will be quickly welcomed, well fed and…Addicted.
