The most Instagrammable cafes in London

Cute cafes in the city 

Recently when I was in London I noticed a trend for aesthetically pleasing floral cafes. When I visit a new place I always have a look on Instagram for ideas and inspiration. With my blog, I am in London a few times each year and I always try and visit a cute spot when I am there. I have compiled my list of all the ones that I have visited so far starting with the most recent ones. If you have found some cute ones then please do comment below and let me know or you can send me a DM over on Instagram. 

Élan Cafe

When I was staying in Kensington recently I strolled to the Élan cafe on Brompton Rd. I had also popped into the one in Mayfair and I was quite disappointed by that one, however, the one on Brompton Rd is fab! So I recommend going to that one. I went around 3pm and there were no queues and I was able to get a nice seat. The decor is amazing, from the pale pink chairs with pops of gold to the faux cherry blossom trees and flower walls this place is Instagram heaven. I only stopped by and had a coffee but the food did look really good. You can have a look at the menu here.


If you are rambling around Notting Hill then check out Biscuiteers. The staff were so lovely when I visited. I stopped for tea and a chocolate brownie and had some of their cute biscuits too. The cafe in Notting Hill also has an icing school where you can do a class and learn some of their techniques. I haven’t done a class but it sounds fun. The front of the shop is a head turner, it looks like it has been sketched onto the wall. Definitely worth pencilling in when rambling around Notting Hill. They also have a second Cafe in Battersea.

Fait Maison

This was one of my favourites. I went to the one on Gloucester rd and I stopped and had some brunch. The decor is adorable here. It is very me! Cute tea cups, french style furniture and inspiring floral wall displays. I got an ommellete, juice and a coffee. The menu stood out compared to the other cafes as it was middle eastern inspired. I went on a Sunday afternoon and it wasn’t too busy. It is not far from the Gloucester rd tube station .

Saint Aymes

Get your wysteria and sugar fix in Saint Aymes cafe. I got off at Paddington tube station and strolled up to the cafe on Connaught St. On the outside it is decorated with pretty faux wysteria, inside it has pretty floral walls and is famed for its 23ct gold unicorn lattes. Now, as pretty as this was it my least fave, it was quiet when I was there but they do operate a one hour table time slot as it gets so busy.

Peggy Porschen 

I have been to Peggy Porschens twice and I always try and even walk past as they change up their deisplays each season and I always love to see what its like. This cafe is a lot smaller than I expected but still beautifully decorated with delicious cakes. The cafe is situated in Belgravia and it is only a 5 minute walk from Victoria tube station. If you are in the area then do pop by and check out the displays and treat yourself to a cupcake.

If I find any more cute cafes when I am on my travels I will add them to this post. I am often over in London and when I do go I always try and visit a new cute spot. Also, if you have any recommendations then comment below and let me know.
