Are These London’s Prettiest Biscuit Shops? Biscuiteers Icing Cafés

You may well have seen Biscuiteers’ Icing Café’s striped black and white awnings plastered across your Instagram feed, and for very good reason, these sweet little biscuit shops in Notting Hill and Battersea bring a touch of nostalgic sweetness to the UK high street.

Founded by Harriet Hastings and her husband Stevie Congron in 2007, Biscuiteers was created to provide beautifully iced and packaged handmade biscuits as an alternative gift to more traditional flowers or chocolate. What followed was two cookbooks, collaborations with everyone from the National Portrait Gallery to Selfridges, two Icing Cafés, and a devoted following of biscuit lovers and instagrammers looking for the perfect shot in front of the pretty shopfronts.

At the Icing Cafés you can find the perfect gift for every occasion, enjoy afternoon tea and even learn how to ice biscuits yourself. But we love just how darn sweet they are, the inside every bit as charming as the outside, and of course, the delicious biscuits themselves. From the Queen to Paddington Bear and the Easter Bunny, everyone has had the Biscuiteers treatment.

Biscuiteers is a London destination that we make sure we visit every time we are in town. Don’t worry if you can’t make it to London though, Biscuiteers ship their beautiful creations worldwide, so while you may not get that perfect Instagram shot, you can still enjoy their sweet treats.
