Last week Nicole & Jenny headed to London for a day of inspiration and the odd cake or two! With a list of MUST VISIT places, Saint Aymes was one that stood out from the rest. While there we were lucky enough to meet the beautiful Lois, one the the sister duo who own Saint Aymes.
Lets jump right in with our B&G Interviews to hear more about the brand, the sisters & their inspiration:
1. We adore your beautiful cafe & shop. What inspired you to open your business?

Wisteria is beautiful, naturally occurring on exteriors. It is also very seasonal, making it a real treat with bits seen. We love wisteria and wanted it to have it last a bit longer!
4. We see you work within your cafe, do you think this is an important factor for an independent business?
