The Most Instagrammable Cafes in London

1. Biscuiteers

Biscuiteers is known for its mouthwatering and beautifully decorated biscuits. Whether you want to learn how to ice or have a delicious afternoon tea, Biscuiteers is the place for you.

Their cafes, located in Notting Hill and Belgravia, have unique decorations – and painted in black and white –  that stand out in the neighbourhoods.

Biscuiteers’ luxury afternoon tea is an experience. Enjoy finger sandwiches, freshly baked scones, delicious patisserie, and of course, their signature icing biscuits.

2. Chestnut Bakery

This bakery and cafe is located in the cool neighbourhood of Belgravia. It’s a fairly new place which has gained lots of popularity in a short period of time.

What is special about this place is the variety of delicious pastries they have. You can see they bake everything as you order or on the day, so you can tell it’s all fresh.

Although many people will order takeaway, it’s nice to eat in – you can choose to sit at the front or back of the cafe where they have a nice small patio where the sun comes through and which is decorated with oranges.

If you decide to eat in, you’ll be surprised how simple the menu looks, but after visiting the bakery twice, I realised that the flavour and type of pastries or savoury items may differ from day to day. But what doesn’t change is the fact that they have some exciting flavour combinations from other cuisines.

Two sweet things you must try are the apple crumble monkey bread as well as the strawberry jam doughnuts. 

If you opt for savoury, you won’t regret trying one of their big flatbreads, which you can easily share with someone else, or the avocado and pastrami sandwich.

3. Dyce Cafe

If you love a pink cafe, you must visit Dyce! Its pink booths, turquoise neon lights and details, and food make it a very instagrammable cafe.

However, not only is the cafe beautiful but the food is amazing too. They serve brunch as well as desserts.

Eat anything from smashed avocado on sourdough and a smoothie bowl to cookie dough with ice cream, Eton mess and a cinnamon bun.

4. El&N Cafe

You’ve probably come across Elan Cafe on Instagram at some point. It all started with their cafe in Park Lane, which opened in 2017. At the time, there weren’t any instagrammable cafes in London, so as you can imagine, it was a big success! 

Therefore the owner opened more and more Elan cafes across London (there are 10 cafes), and you can also find them abroad too. Elan opened in international destinations like Paris, Dubai, Doha and Milan!

Every location has a different theme and, therefore, decoration. However, the predominant colour continues to be pink, of course. Elan cafes are definitely some of the most aesthetic places in London.

The eggs benedict and acai bowl are my favourite dishes. However, if you’re after a quick coffee or tea and pastry, they also have great options – including instagrammable drinks. Whatever you end up ordering, you won’t regret it. 

Wondering which is the biggest Elan? The one in Hans Crescent in Knightsbridge has two floors!

5. Fait Maison Salon de Thé

A quaint and beautiful cafe is Fait Maison. There are several locations, but Fait Maison Salon de Thé is one of the best ones.

Here you can enjoy delicious traditional breakfast dishes like a Full English Breakfast or Eggs Florentine as well as a Middle Eastern breakfast with dishes like shakshuka and hummus.

On top of this, Fait Maison is an excellent place to have afternoon tea with friends.

6. Farm Girl 

Farm Girl is a cafe chain that serves healthy food and good hot drinks. You can find these cafes in different locations across London – Notting Hill, Fitzrovia, Knightsbridge and Soho!

Every cafe has a beautiful simple, and neat decoration, and the one in Notting Hill is definitely my favourite – the cafe is just behind St Peters Church and has a beautiful interior with a Californian vibe.

Some of their popular food items include rose latte avocado on toast.

7. Feya

Feya isn’t only a pretty cafe but serves good food. There are two Feya cafes – one in Knightsbridge and another on Bond Street.

Feya Knightsbridge stands out for its pretty tropical decoration and purple marble. It’s one of those cafes you want to take pictures in. However, if you decide to visit Feya Bond Street, you’ll love the pastel colours on the walls and seats. It’s the pink paradise.

Their menu offers a good variety of hot drinks, smoothies and milkshakes as well as all-day brunch and dining. 

Feya can be a bit expensive, but it’s worth trying their hot drinks and cakes!

This cafe is a great place to grab something healthy on the go or sit in their lovely minimalist cafes. They offer smoothies, sandwiches, salads, etc., making it perfect for a quick lunch.

You’ll find Joe and the juice in different locations across London.

A must-try is their delicious smoothies, especially the Pick Me Up smoothie that contains strawberries, apples and bananas.

9. Maitre Choux King’s Road

Maitre Choux King’s Road is located in the upmarket neighbourhood of Chelsea. Although you can find other Maitre Choux across London, you definitely want to choose this one – cosy vibe and flower mural.

Although prices are a bit high, it’s absolutely worth trying their eclairs. They’re the best I’ve ever had.

My favourite one is the passion fruit eclair which has a rich passion fruit flavour and is fluffy and filled with delicious pastry cream. 

If you’d love to try them out but want to save a bit of money, get them for a takeaway which will save you two pounds.

10. Milk Beach

Bringing all the vibes from Australia to London, Milk Beach is the perfect place to enjoy all-day brunch or an evening meal.

Their brunch is to die for – buttermilk pancakes with berries, smashed avocado on sourdough, eggs benedict and a good selection of boozy drinks like the classic mimosas.

But if you fancy dinner, you won’t be disappointed either.

11. Peggy Porschen

Peggy is one of the most famous cafes in London – its pretty pink facade and decorations and cakes attract many people to the cafe.

There are different branches – including Chelsea and Belgravia. No matter how many times you visit it, you’ll fall in love with the decor! Especially they change the entrance decoration depending on the season. 

Apart from this, you’ll also love their food. Although they specialise in cakes and cupcakes, they also have an extensive menu with other delicious sweet and savoury dishes. 

My favourite breakfast dish is the brioche French toast served with berries, maple syrup and cream.

12. Saint Aymes London

Saint Aymes is the perfect cafe to go to with some girlfriends! From the moment you see their beautiful floral outdoor decoration, you feel that girly vibe.

It’s one of the prettiest cafes in London, with breakfast, lunch and afternoon tea options. The avocado waffles are one of the popular choices as well as the unicorn latte, which has 24ct gold in it.

Fancy some cocktails? They have great cocktails and mocktails too. Don’t miss the happy hour to enjoy 2 for 1 on some of their cocktails from 4 to 7 pm.

13. The Ivy Chelsea and Victoria

I know, I know The Ivy isn’t a cafe (although they do offer a breakfast and afternoon tea menu) but I have to mention it!

If you’re looking for a unique dining experience, you must go to The Ivy Chelsea or Victoria. Not only are the restaurant decorations beautiful, but the food is outstanding, plus the Ivy restaurants have some of the best instagrammable cocktail bars in London.

No matter which Ivy you’re visiting, all of them are beautifully decorated with plants that give you the feeling of being somewhere tropical. At the same time, the bar looks amazing – just like those you see in American films. 

If you sit near the bar, I can guarantee you won’t stop watching the bartenders preparing incredible cocktails. 

Some of the dishes you may want to try are the arancini with truffle cheese, the blackened cod or the lobster linguini. The blackened cod was full of flavour and seasoned with some Asian condiments and sauces. 

I can’t forget to mention the creme brulee! It’s probably one of the best I have ever had! However, if you’re crazy about chocolate, you must try the chocolate bomb, which is melted with a hot caramel sauce poured by the waitress in front of you. So satisfying to watch! 

If you’re vegetarian or vegan, they also have a full menu with vegetarian and vegan dishes.

14. The Knot Churros

Who doesn’t like churros? If you’re looking for churros in London, then you’re lucky because The Knot Churros is the place to go.

Not only will you find the regular sugar-coated churros but many different dipping sauces – from white Belgian chocolate to strawberry chocolate and lots of toppings. 

But that’s not all; you can also have your churros with ice cream and pink candy floss!

And in case you aren’t a big fan of churros, they also serve savoury bagels and a good range of hot drinks.
