I was looking at a website for the top 5 doughnuts in London and discovered that there was one place I hadn't been to. I must have passed it loads of times but, in a rush for the station, not noticed it. 'Crosstown' donut shop is located in Piccadilly Circus station. It is a clam oasis amongst the hustle and bustle. I don't know how I haven't seen it before! The doughnuts are made fresh everyday and come in deliciously tempting flavours - it took a while to choose! You could have sea salt caramel and banana cream, creme brulee with vanilla cream, classic raspberry jam (oozing with fresh fruit), apple and pear crumble, Belgian chocolate truffle, rocky road... Not cheap at £3.50 each but they have a smooth creamy filling, bouncy soft dough and great flavour. The shop has some stalls inside and benches outside. The calming music blocks out the noise of the tube and, along with the trendy white victorian toilet tiles and wooden crates, it provides a perfect pit stop. Worth a visit!
