Crosstown Review: London’s Most Loved Doughnuts

Crosstown Review: London’s Most Loved Doughnuts

Crosstown Doughnuts are dotted across London, from Victoria to Spitalfields. With a wide selection of sweet treats, from doughnuts to cookies, and with great options for vegans, it’s no wonder this place is so popular with Londoners.

What is Crosstown?

Crosstown was first opened in 2014 on Leather Lane in Farringdon. They now have over 20 locations all over London, and a few in other parts of the UK. From permanent shops like those in Soho, Victoria, Marylebone, and Canary Wharf. To doughnut vans in Spitalfields and London Bridge.

Crosstown rolls all their own dough by hand, with all the fillings, jams, and glazes also made by them. Although this takes extra time, they don’t believe quality should be sacrificed for quality – and that’s easy to see in their products.

Crosstown Doughnuts Review

We visited the Crosstown truck in Spitalfields and ordered the peanut butter cookie and pistachio doughnut. We’re big fans of Spitalfields Market and it’s the perfect home for Crosstown which has its own industrial feel that matches Spitalfields’ own.

The pistachio scroll was a seasonal flavour that is no longer available. However, it was created using their vegan dough which is rolled before being filled with pistachio custard. It was then dipped in a pistachio glaze and topped with crushed pistachios. We really enjoyed this flavour (who doesn’t love pistachio) and would highly recommend it if they decide to bring it back!

The cookie we tried was the vegan peanut butter and choc-chip. It’s created using deep-roasted peanut butter with dark chocolate chips. Again, this London crafted cookie was delicious and the perfect snack for a cold autumn or winter day.
