    Okay hands up, who's the comedian who stole all the patisseries from Muswell Hill?

    Recently went there for my wife's birthday with the intention of buying a cake from one of the 3 high end patisseries, as we had done on previous occasions.

    We left completely discombobulated by the fact that all 3 patisseries had closed down. 😠

    Not cool dude.

    🙂

    Muswell Hill still boasts an award winning fish and chip shop, but those patisseries will be sorely missed.

    Everything keeps changing. The older one gets, the harder it is to just go with the flow. I think I just explained conservatism.

    Conditory that is making pastry business is dying off.
    Usually mancan buy cakes and layer cakes only in bakeries as secondary offer.
    I kept tracking of disappeared pastry shops in Belgrade since 1978 and I could write a baedeker for lost sweet tooth oases.

    Just like instead of a book store one can over night find a gambling house.

    Will be at work old chap, but if you happened to be near Enfield I might be able to free up a little time. (Was just visiting Muswell Hill).

    I am at Marylebone, but the sub is running to Enfield I presume? Great Northern and Victoria according to Google. It takes about an hour.

    Yeah, about an hour. Best way i think would be to get to London Liverpool street or Kings Cross and get the London overground (To Enfield Town and Enfield Chase respectively).
