I have been consuming Outsider Tart goodies for a couple of years now and they have never failed to impress me. I believe that I am seriously hooked on this amazing company. I have recently purchased the new Outside Tart cook book and I must say that I have probably already made half of the recipes and every single one was delicious!
Not only are the amazing products that come out of Outsider Tart brilliant but so are the two amazing men who have set up this gorgeous place.
If you visit – my favourite sweet option are the cheesecakes …. yum yum yum!
Very delicious. I had the Chef’s special, followed the servers suggestions , and finalized off along with a fabulous frozen treats dish .
Classic cookery, offered in an unassuming dining area without a whole lot of fuss. The dish definitely speaks by itself, and though vegetarians could find their choice quite limited, it’s a carnivore’s paradise. A number of business-types here on a weekday the afternoon meal, but the environment was still fairly casual.
Services was favorable, attentive and considered without getting pushy or stuffy. Will absolutely get back on try a handful of the way more ambitious bowls
These guys are fantastic. I had the good fortune of sampling some of their goodies at various events. The quality of ingredients is top notch, the products are fresh, expertly made and utterly delicious. I had never had fresh, home made marshmallows (in different flavours, like peach!) before and it was a revelation. Recently, I purchased a birthday cake from them. My partner had requested a rum cake. I had no idea what it was, so I asked various bakers and they didn’t know either. I emailed Outsider Tart and presto! Not only did they know what it was, they make 2 kinds!! They were extremely helpful and super friendly. So, I ordered it and it was a huge success. It was cakey, moist, nice smooth crust, buttery, but not too much so, and sweet, but not overly so. It wasn’t cheap, but good food never is. Totally worth the expenditure. Oh, and follow their Tweets. I love reading about what’s coming out of the oven.
A couple of weeks ago I was lucky enough to get my hands on an outsider tart meringue brownie and I have to say, it was 'bloody scrumptious’, so much so that after i’d finished the easily visible crumbs I then donned my tweed jacket and hat and set about investigating my desk with a magnifying glass 'Sherlock Holmes stylee’ in the vien hope of finding any uneaten crumbs.
Go there, buy a cake, a brownie, maybe both, you’ll love it!
I was kindly invited along by Qype to sample some of Outsider Tart’s cakes and I came away with a great impression of the sweet things on offer. They don’t limit themselves to one particular type of cake/sweet, as they do a range of things from muffins to brownies, marsmellows to cakes… etc, if it’s sweet, they will likely have it.
Anyway, so highlights for me as follows:
Personally am a fan of white chocolate and I really lit up when I saw that their version of white chocolate brownies - which is a very rare thing to see. They coloured them green just to be different - but they really tasted so heavenly. All the pure milkiness and creaminess of rich white chocolate was within the brownie and I was most impressed.
I was also surprised by the peach marsmellows which were rather like soft meringues infused with fruit.
The highlight of the night for me was the bourbon and pecan pie and a sort of maple syrup (I forget the myriad of ingredients). The pie itself had a crumbly and nutty crust, and inside was a luscious and dense - almost like a melting jelly centre with lots of rich honey-like flavours with just a slight hint of bourbon on the aftertaste - it really was pretty glorious and my only regret is I didnt eat more… and I shoulda taken a picture (I think it’s on the Qype blog) .
I highly recommend it. I like sweet things - esp sweet things which are hard to come by and I thoroughly recommend Outsider Tart.
My oh my oh my if I don’t get me more of that pie I think I’m gonna die!
I was privileged to be able to try some of the delectable Outsider Tart goodies recently and WOW what a flavour sensation in my mouth! I can honestly say that the Bourbon pecan pie is possibly the closest thing to sex I’ve found in a baked good.
The brownies they have produced rival many I have tried and exceed expectations. They are a chocolaty symphony of delights that dance upon the tongue like a circus of jugglers. I’ll let you just imagine what that must have felt like.
The apple and cinnamon cake was a treat I have not had for such a long time. Even fussy eater husband relented and admitted that he did, in fact, like the apple and cinnamon “thing”.
This place is not cheap but you pay for quality and this quality is well worth it. If you need to cater a corporate event and need reliability and quality, you can depend on Outsider Tart.
Be still my sugar-overloaded tart, erm - I mean, heart. Outsider Tart is fantastic.
I’m an American living in London and having a baked goods around like OT’s is a necessity.
The white chocolate brownies and pecan pie are among the best I’ve had on either side of the Atlantic.
I love the fact that I’m supporting a small business as well. (I think I might even have to make the trek out to Chiswick once the store opens)
Yum, yum, yum!
My sweet tooth just got a happy fix and it came in the form of homemade goodness from the delightful Outsider Tart gang.
Brownies, muffins, cakes and pies… Oh heaven, sweet icing covered heaven, where has this place been hiding? As a lady from the South, these gents have provided my homesick self some soul food.
I look forward to visiting them at the markets and anywhere their future ventures have them sharing their delights.
(Rumor is… they have grits with cheese and bacon in the works to be shared with London!! Oh the excitement! This girl needs a good Southern-fried brunch, and these are just the men to do it.)
Sweet, sweet indulgence. Aching for the kinds of cakes and sweets they grew up on in the US, the owners make sugary treats worth seeking out, either in this Soho location or at one of the west London markets they sell at.
I was lucky enough to be able to sample several of their concoctions last night, from dusted marshmallows to apple and cinnamon cake to corn and blueberry muffins to marscapone-topped sponge to triple-chocolate brownies to an AMAZING BOURBON PECAN PIE! DEAR SWEET GOD OF ALL THAT’S PRECIOUS, I NEED MORE OF THAT PIE!
Seriously. Good folks, great cakes.
The Double David Duo are fond of the expression gilding the lily… and the moment I let one of their crazy brownies in my mouth I knew why. They have found a toned down way of saying “forget everything you thought you knew about good sweets, and be prepared to take sugar to a new level”! These guys do it American style- bigger better and authentic (right down to importing the ingredients that can’t be sourced here).
Marshmallows with Peach flavour and sherbet style sugar coating, Pecan pie so airy and light that it’s almost meringue like in its centre, large cinnamon muffins, mascarpone icing…
It gets better… They do master classes! Come learn, take home food and recipes, 'gilded’ with laugher and entertainment.
Post binge, I may now being having the largest sugar crash of my entire life, but I shall be biking it out to Putney markets every Thursday (until their shop appears) just to counteract the inevitably decadent sugar intake!
When you think of a brownie, you’ll immediately picture a sort of squarish dark cakey thing, sometimes with a scattering of nuts if you’re lucky. Outsider Tart takes brownies to the max. Dark chocolate and nut, white chocolate cover with a green chocolatey sponge, a white chocolate with a toasted merengue crust - the possibilities really are endless. The bakers put passion into every little concoction they come up with and personally travel to the source of all of their ingredients to check they are top notch.
Can’t wait for the Chiswick store to open but in the meantime catch them in farmer’s markets in the west or get in touch with them directly for a special order.
When I was a kid, I wanted to be American. All the cool stuff was American: The Six Million Dollar Man, CHIPS, The Dukes of Hazard. I even used to practice a dreadful American accent in the privacy of my bedroom. But as I grew older the feeling faded and I was quite glad to have been born and bred in the UK.
Outsider Tart do the kind of cakes you wouldn’t normally see on this side of the Atlantic. They know how to REALLY do Pecan Pie. Their Brownies are actually what Brownies are supposed to be like. And they do things with Marshmallows that make these things you shove on a stick over a bonfire look pathetic.
I never had any of this stuff growing up. And I feel as if I’ve missed out. But fortunately these guys can help me catch up on everything I’ve been missing.
It's no secret how much I love the delectable baked goods offered by Outsider Tart. This “US style cake emporium” makes some of the yummiest treats I've tasted in London, including my last birthday cake - a gigantic rum cake that wowed everybody fortunate enough to have a slice.
Outsider Tart is a hobby-turned-business for David Lesniak and David Muniz, two American business and life partners who set out to rectify what they saw as a dire situation: that “good wholesome, homemade cupcakes, sweet pies and fresh tarts are pretty hard to come by” here in London. I certainly can attest to London being a much more delicious city since they donned their professional aprons.
