Food | I Love Nata | Covent Garden

I Love Nata Covent Garden London

I love food. Trying it. Eating it. Exploring it. And London has so many different cafes, pop ups and restaurants I have not yet discovered. So thanks to the wonderful world that is this blogging community, Carrie from WishWishWish made me aware of a little cafe in Covent Garden that only sells one thing. Portugese egg tarts. And after visiting Macau which once upon a time was a Portuguese colony and sampled Lord Stow's egg tarts, this obviously meant I had to wander down to try them myself.

A large hung blackboard proudly declares, "Voted best custard tart in London's Gastronomic Festival for 2012, 2013 and 2015", and for that it's only fair to guess that I Love Nata must be doing something right. But what are natas to begin with? They are little bites of deliciousness filled with custard and sweetness, slightly reminding me of Maids of Honour in London (another great place to go). The natas are served warm and the table have little shakers - don't mistake them for salt and pepper like I did! If you look carefully. They have holes in the shape of C and A - cinnamon and icing sugar respectively. 

A pleasant short walk from Covent Garden station and a stone's throw of Carnaby Street, this little cafe happily serves natas all day long. With yellow walls and monochrome tiles as well as free wifi, it makes a lovely place to compose this blog post. Taking centre stage is the wooden bar where you normally can find Maria and George cheerily saying hello, with the large blackboard hung behind detailing the cafe's offerings and the constant whirring of coffee machines churning out customer's orders - order the latte, it's made with love by Maria and a good one at that. 

In short, a perfect hideaway from the hustle and bustle of Covent Garden. A great place to relax for your mid morning snack or do what I did and have a cheeky Friday treat. Be warned though - you might start with one but I promise you, you'll be there for at least two.
