Violet is a Hackney-based cafe/bakery where the decor is as sweet as the cupcakes. The influence of the American owner Claire Ptak is felt in the sunshine spread of pastel-frosted cupcakes and red velvet whoopie pies laid out in the bakery’s rustic interior. Also serving a simple menu of savoury dishes, the bakery is a charming - if slightly overpriced - spot to pick up a mini salted caramel cupcake to go or a slice of almond polenta cake with Jersey cream to be enjoyed in the lantern-strewn garden out the back.
