THE BOOMBOX BAKESHOP: The Deliciously Healthy Veg-Friendly Bakery

Written by The Editors

Taking the cupcake and its kin to the next level, The Boombox Bakeshop is one of the gems of London’s Old East Village. Creativity is expressed in every corner and in every deliciously decadent bite.  

Locally Roasted Coffee

The Scene

The charming shop features a comfy seating area to enjoy a treat and a cup of excellent coffee. Unique music-themed decor extends to a record “swap and drop” for fellow music enthusiasts. An enticing array of the day’s baking is displayed for take-away orders, in cutely designed “boombox” boxes. 



The veg-friendly bakery and cafe specializes in vegan goods and gluten-free vegan goods, ranging from their signature cupcakes to popovers, cookies, cakes, mini pies and other delightful seasonal surprises. “We are also all about supporting local,” notes owner Alexandra Connon, who has combined her love of baking and music in the shop. “Whether this means supporting local bands or sourcing our fresh organic produce from local farmers and distributors. Even our coffee is roasted locally and specially blended for the shop.”

This is a small batch bakery where every­thing is baked daily. Not all flavours on the extensive online menu are available every day, but can be ordered. Similarly by order, amazing Special Occasion Cakes & Cupcakes — “classical” or “funky” — are available.
