It’s not every day you discover a new type of doughnut

Especially on Gray’s Inn Road, in the King’s Cross hinterlands.

But French bakery Aux Pains de Papy has just opened up there, at number 279.

They’re a small French chain that has looks set to take London by storm with their secret weapon of bugnes: mini doughnuts that they flavour with orange blossom water. Very light, sugary and perfumed. £3 for 15. Smaller than regular doughnuts, which means you can eat lots of them!


It looks the business, with Gallic bakers in the back of the shop kneading furiously. They’re from Marseille apparently. I imagine sales of pastis and Gauloises in the area are up!
