Finding gems in unusual places is always great especially when you love cakes. Kings Cross has never been a mecca of great cafes or interesting shops but with all the regeneration planned for the area things seem to be improving.
On my lunch break today this Crafty Creature went to a really rather lovely cafe called Simmons on the Caledonian Road. It sells a variety of sandwiches, biscuits, snacks, cakes and drinks but the best thing has to be their cupcakes. Also, when you order tea it comes in a pot with beautiful vintage cup. It made for a very dignified lunch.
