Happy Scrapbook loves to celebrate ventures that combine creativity, quality, entrepreneurship and passion, leaving the customer with a deep smile on the face! Lumiere is a cocktail juice emporium that serves up delicious cocktails, smoothies, shakes, cakes and teas, but that summary doesn’t do it justice. On first arrival I was offered a taste of [...]

Drink Shop Do

Drink Shop Do is a new design shop and café bar selling products from emerging designers alongside vintage furniture and home wares. An eclectic range of evening events include talks; (e.g. founder of Etsy talking on the 14th Sept) the opportunity to get creative yourself and no doubt connect with like-minded people over a cocktail, [...]


Readers from way back will remember Happy Scrapbook’s excitement on discovering multi-award-winning Mexican eaterie Wahaca, and whilst newly opened Lupita near Embankment cheekily claims to be London’s first authentic Mexican experience, this town’s big enough for the both of them. A similar menu offers fresh ingredients; my guacamole was lovingly prepared at my table; and [...]

Indali Lounge

When in India last year, I became very used to eating curries made with a finely balanced blend of spices. Indali Lounge is a rare find in London, offering the same attention to the delicate balance of spices and herbs according to Ayurvedic tradition; avoiding the usual calorie-laden blend of ghee and cream, whilst being [...]

Kati Roll Company

For any readers who have enjoyed the entries on Street Food eateries Wahaca, Yalla Yalla and Mooli’s in recent months, you should also like The Kati Roll Company. Happy Scrapbook is a bit behind the curve on this one, as its Soho branch has been open for 2 years, but it’s one of those places that’s [...]

Saltoun Supper Club

Many of you will have observed the recent trend of underground restaurants popping up, focused around the concept of a chef creating a dinner party meets restaurant in his or her home. They’re flourishing due to a combination of social media, the growing foodie culture and creative evolution of the average night out. I’ve chosen [...]

Scandinavian Kitchen

I came across Scandinavian Kitchen by chance whilst walking through the back streets of the West End, looking for a quick bite to eat, sit down and calm refuge from the rain and noise from Oxford Street. What a treat to be able to pick from the wide selection of traditional Scandinavian food, browse their grocery [...]

Marky Market

    Recently Happy Scrapbook featured Le Dolci Cake Club that delivers quirky cakes to your office. Another offering that may appeal to any busy foodies reading is Mark from Marky Market, your ”man at the market” who’ll go to Billingsgate or Smithfield markets at four in the morning, ready to source the best fish and meat and deliver [...]
