HOT: Gail's Bread, 138 Portobello Road, Notting Hill
Gail's Bread was opened by Gail Stephens, founder of Baker and Spice (another HOT entry) and you can tell from the quality and the display of the delicious baked goods. The pastries were buttery and flaky, the omlette sandwich was filled with a bright yellow organic egg omlette. Best of all was the green olive loaf I took home - I polished off 4 slices slathered with avocado and tomato for dinner! Plus if you buy their reuseable canvas bread bag for 5 pounds (it comes attached inside a larger carrier bag, very cute) then you get 10% every loaf. What a fantastic idea - I'll definitely be going back, bag in tow.
