Two of life’s greatest pleasures - cheese and cake. Brought together in delicious matrimony, and celebrated on its very own day, International Cheesecake Day. Oh, and did we mention it’s rapidly approaching?

On the 30th of July, celebrate in style by grabbing a slice or two at Creams. They have a variety of delicious flavours to indulge including, Oreo, Berry and Chocolate. Yum! Alternatively head to Lola’s Cupcakes to pick up their variety box of mouth-watering mini-cheesecakes if you are feeling indecisive on which flavour you fancy. You’ll get to try the likes of red velvet, chocolate fudge, and banoffee. Finally, if you’re feeling generous, you could nip into Icakes and pick up an entire cheesecake to take home to enjoy with your friends and family.

But don’t worry waffle, cake and crepe lovers; we know that cheesecakes are not everyone’s dessert of choice. The following places in InIlford town centre are where you should head to grab a sweet treat!

If you are looking for a trendy dessert house (that’s perfect for the gram), we recommend Urban Chocolatier or Creams. Urban Chocolatier has a variety of unique desserts that are sure to tickle your tastebuds, such as their Nutty Profiteroles and Baklava Sizzler. If you are looking for something a little more unique, Urban Chocolatier has got your back.


As well as cheesecakes, Creams Café also has every dessert option you would expect from a dessert parlour (and more!), including waffles, sundaes, crepes and cookie dough.


If you’re too busy browsing the shops to stop somewhere, why not grab a quick sweet treat from Aunty Anne’s. Located on level 2 of Exchange Ilford, they have a delicious selection of sweet pretzels. Choose from the likes of Cinnamon, Vanilla or Sweet Almond. Alternatively, Lola’s Cupcakes, a fresh cupcake stand located at the Cranbrook Road entrance, have cupcakes for every occasion or mood! Browse their sweet collection of unicorn, farmyard and rainbow designs. After all, money can’t buy happiness, but it can buy cupcakes and that’s pretty close!

If you are shopping with friends and feel like having a coffee, a pastry and a catch-up, visit one of the fantastic coffee shops located around InIlford town centre. Starbucks is a brilliant option as their bakery has a wide selection of cookies, muffins and blondies. More of a Costa Coffee fan? They also have a great selection of pastries, muffins and cakes. Oh, and don’t forget to check out the delicious M&S Yumnut! Alternatively, pop into Jamaica Blue and grab one of their famous milkshakes as they are truly delicious!
