On our way to an event in London, Fay and I recently found ourselves with a spare hour to kill. This struck us as the perfect opportunity to check out Crosstown Doughnuts. This quirky doughnut stand, located a stones throw from Victoria Station is something special in the doughnut world.
Crosstown started its life in London street food hub, Leather Lane Market, back in 2014. The business now has several stands across London with more on their way. You can find them at several markets and even order them online.
The donuts all have unusual and unique flavours. I love the sound of Kiwi and Green Apple and Sea Salt Caramel Banana. There are also 3 vegan option, so theres definitely something for everyone. The donuts are made fresh daily using a hybrid sourdough and all toppings and fillings are made in house.
I tried the Peanut Butter Berry flavour and Fay opted for the Matcha Tea option. Mine was absolutely amazing! The texture of the donut was absolutely beautiful and the peanut butter was gorgeous too. The tangy berry flavoured jam with chunky berry bits complimented it perfectly. You could tell that the doughnuts were freshly made and with lovely ingredients. They are definitely worth paying a little extra for.
As well as picking up a juice from Crosstown, I also grabbed a coffee from nearby Note coffee on my way past, which is why thats also in the picture. Crosstown do offer speciality coffees too.
The staff were really friendly and were happy to discuss the flavours and make recommendations to us. I really can’t wait to go back and try a few more flavours.
You can find a list of London locations on their website.
