Beloved Belgravia patisserie Dominique Ansel Bakery is closing down for good at the end of this month, meaning you've got one last chance to try the chef's famous Cronut.
The bakery opened in London in 2016. It became known for Ansel's signature croissant-doughnut hybrid, which helped him win the title of World's Best Pastry Chef.
Each month, a different flavour of Cronut is served, and Ansel is bowing out with 'The Last Cronut', a milk chocolate banana & peanut butter Cronut, filled with milk chocolate banana ganache and silky whipped peanut butter ganache. It's available throughout August, from £5, though the bakery is taking part in Eat Out To Help Out, meaning you can tuck into one for £2.50 on Monday-Wednesday each week.
In addition to a farewell Cronut, Chef Ansel is serving up three dishes for the final time — the Welsh Rarebit Croissant, the liquid caramel peanut butter mousse cake, and After The Rain, a jasmine mousse, pear and ginger gelée. Each of these items was invented specifically for the London bakery, and will never be served elsewhere.
The fruit and vegetable patch afternoon tea and the what-a-melon soft serve ice cream will both be served until the closure, giving you a final chance to snap a shot of that famous flower wall backdrop. All menu items are available at half price for dine-in customers on Monday-Wednesday as part of the Eat Out To Help Out Scheme.
Dominique Ansel's Covent Garden restaurant, Treehouse, has also closed for good, despite only having opened its doors in early 2020.
Treehouse has already closed, and Dominique Ansel Bakery closes at 7pm on 31 August 2020.
