Sydenham: Slatters/The Cake Store. Regularly featured on the Generation Game in the 70s, visited by Heston Blumenthal for a telly cooking programme (presumably about cakes) a few year back, made all the scones for Wimbledon. Famously staffed by a vast number of old ladies and gormless Saturday worker teens who don’t know what any of the products are.

Slatters closed pretty much on the bang of the first lockdown and won’t be opening again.
