On a recent visit to Ipswich town, my friend and I found ourselves fancying a delicious cake to round off our afternoon of shopping. We often visit the likes of Costa or other mainstream coffee shops but we wanted something different. We stumbled upon a little cake shop on the corner of the high street which we must have walked past numerous times. The shop was a small independent shop which was great as I’m all for supporting local and small businesses and it seemed to sell exactly what we were after. The shop ‘Bonbon’ displayed in its shop windows an array of traditional pastries and cakes such as cannoli and the offering drew us in. As well as the pastries on offer, the counter hosted cupcakes and brownies topped and filled with popular chocolate bars and sweets.
The pricing was really good too with a number of offers available. We opted for the 3 brownies for £5 and I was really surprised with the size of the brownies for the buck.
There was quite of bit of choice for flavours but I went with a double decker, a twix and a mars brownie while my friend opted for an oreo.
There were a couple of tables and chairs outside the front of the shop which meant we could stop and tuck into our treats before heading home. I’m glad this was an option as it also gave us the opportunity to consider further purchases before leaving.
The actual brownies were delicious. They were gooey and had a good amount of chocolate bar in- enough to taste and enjoy but not so much that it was sickly.
Bonbon have recently launched a selection of savoury foods including paninis and grilled German sausages.
I’ll definitely be going back next time I’m in town. It’s really important, especially now to support your local high street and independent retailers.
