Violet Dalston

I had a few well deserved days off work last week.

On one afternoon, we ambled down Graham road in search of cake!

If ever you find yourself in need of cake in Dalston, then pop into Violet Cakes



47 Wilton Way,
E8 3ED,
London


I had a cuppa Earl Gray and a Violet cupcake which made the walk in the rain worthwhile.


The wall by the cake shop.


DID YOU KNOW........

That this unremarkable square was the inspiration behind Albert Square?
Nice bit of Monday mornin' trivia for you!
