Kipling Pâtisserie & Prose at Sanders

Sanders is the home of one of our patisseries which features an open kitchen influenced by Rudyard Kipling and his love for cakes.

"one day he took flour and water and currants and plums and sugar and things, and made himself one cake which was two feet across and three feet thick. It was indeed a Superior Comestible (that’s magic), and he put it on stove because he was allowed to cook on the stove, and he baked it and he baked it till it was all done brown and smelt most sentimental."

As a tribute to our namesake, Kipling, our highly trained & experienced pastry chefs have created a Signature Plum Crumble Cake that utilises the same fine ingredients as described by Rudyard in his infamous quote.

Our in-house Chef de pâtisseries believe that pastry is different from cooking because you have to consider the chemistry, beauty and flavour and be in tune with its all sourcing secret and unusual ingredients.

Our pâtisserie range is indeed a little celebration in itself intended to delight and tantalise your palette.

Whether it’s for that long overdue catch up with friends, birthday celebrations or that first hot cup of coffee of the day, there is something for everyone and we are more than happy to cater for any allergies or dietary requirements you may have. We recommend booking in advance for one of our beautiful afternoon tea experiences, which can be done in store, online or over the telephone.

We look forward to welcoming you soon!
