This boulangerie and patisserie was originally at 1 Fox, but has recently opened up shop at the elite Hyde Park Corner. For those who are rusty in French, a boulangerie specialises in bread while a patisserie offers up delectable pastries. At Just Teddy, you can expect the most divine tarts, cakes and high teas – available in a meat or vegetarian option. They also have an a la carte menu, if you want to fill up before dessert.
