For some people, Easter is everything. If you’re one of them, and even if you’re not, there’s no better place to celebrate than Sloane Street.
From copious amounts of chocolate to exclusive afternoon teas, here’s where to find the most indulgent Easter treats on and around Sloane Street.
Indulge in a special, limited-edition Chocolate Afternoon Tea at Harvey Nichols, inspired by Easter’s food staple: chocolate.
The Easter Chocolate Afternoon Tea includes classic finger sandwiches, plain and raisin scones with jam and clotted cream and a selection of indulgent chocolate desserts, including a trio of chocolate macaroons created by head pastry chef David Conlon. There’s a white chocolate Easter egg, a hazelnut, caramel and chocolate sponge, a white chocolate exotic mouse, chocolate pavé with passion fruit crémeux and a chocolate verrine with caramelised macadamias.
The afternoon tea is available with tea or coffee for £35 per person, or £45 for bottomless Prosecco, at the Fifth Floor Café until Sunday 28 April, 2019, from 2pm to 4.30pm daily.
In celebration of Easter, The Ivy Chelsea Garden will be serving a limited-edition dessert, the “Easter Egger”. Available for £10.95 from Friday 19 April to Monday 22 April, the dessert will feature a delicious white chocolate mousse covered with passion fruit and mango, making for a perfectly egg-citing treat to be enjoyed over Easter weekend.
On Easter Sunday, Colbert head chef Adam Middleton is planning a special roast beef with all the trimmings. Sure, lamb is the traditional dish but this is guaranteed to be the best roast of your year.
There is no more indulgent chocolate than that at the Artisan Du Chocolat, where, for Easter, every purchase over £30 will receive a bag of complimentary mini eggs. May we suggest starting with the Milk Chocolate Chest Easter Egg? It’s a huge milk chocolate egg, lovingly hand-decorated with luxurious shimmering gold, sitting over a patterned chest that conceals an assortment of mini eggs and shimmering chocolate pearls.
The weekly Duke of York Square fine food market will undergo an Easter takeover, becoming a chocolate-lover’s dream on Saturday 13 April.
London’s finest chocolatiers descend on the Square, overseen by the statue of Sir Hans Sloane – who notably introduced milk chocolate to Europe, with special artisan chocolate market stalls from Sir Hans Sloane Chocolate, Susie Keane, Diana David and more.
A number of the market’s much-loved regulars will be offering exclusive innovative chocolate delights, including chocolate sushi from Aki Maki, chocolate flavoured Vietnamese spring rolls from Rao Deli, and 10 different flavours of chocolate fudge from Cookies and Creams.
