Lovely, Instagramable London: Pretty Cafes

PP5This pretty pink cafe, Peggy Porschen was on the top of my list of cute coffee spots to visit in London. The city is filled with darling cafes and tea rooms, but I was particularly excited to see this place in person. Located in Belgravia, nestled between the very posh row houses, you’ll spot Peggy Porschen’s beautiful flower arch.

A city like London can be a bit overwhelming to try to do everything on your list, but it’s amazing how much you can do if you plan ahead. Knowing what is near the neighbourhood you’re exploring is key. Peggy Porschen is just minutes away from Buckingham Palace, which we had visited in the morning, and on the way to the Saatchi Gallery, our afternoon stop. Belgravia is a lovely area to explore, and we enjoyed our walk through the beautiful neighbourhood on our way here.

I went to my fair share of pretty cafes during this trip, so below is my London List of favourites places for delicious (and instagramable) treats!

Peggy Porschens
116 Ebury St, Belgravia

It’s easy to see what makes this location so popular. Build a flower arch, and they will come! Peggy Poschen serves lovely cakes and coffee, but the scenery is really what makes this place a must see. We grabbed a table off to the side and ordered two flat whites. The staff were friendly, and patient with everyone snapping photos. It’s always interesting going to instagram famous spots. I was amused by some of the other guests antics. Hundred and hundreds of photos were taken! As someone who is always taking photos, I’m aware of how ridiculous you can look sometimes. But hey, who cares? Take 100 photos of your pretty cake and lovely latte. Your insta followers will definitely be liking any photo taken at a place like this!

Lyndi’s London List: Pretty Cafes and Tea Rooms

Farm Girl
59A Portobello Rd, Notting Hill
Notting Hill is such a lovely area to wander around, with all the pastel row houses. Located on a quieter part of Portobello Road, is Farm Girl. They makes beautiful latte art, in so many unique flavours. Their to-go cups are particularly fun. Check out my instagram photo here

Biscuiteers
194 Kensington Park Rd, Portobello
Biscuiteers are the original luxury biscuit boutique located near Portobello . They have a wonderful range of hand iced delicious biscuit and treats. The sign outside is really pretty and insta friendly, and located quite close to Farm Girl too.

Sketch Tea Room
9 Conduit St, Mayfair
This all pink tea room is an instagram favourite. It’s a delightful, but very popular spot, so be sure to make a reservation ahead of your visit. There are other tea rooms in the restaurant with delightful decor, but the pink is the favourite. Sketch has some of the coolest (and slightly odd) bathrooms too, with each loo in an egg pod. See what I mean here

The Lanesborough Hotel
Experiencing afternoon tea is a must during your London stay. We visited the Lanesborough for a spot of tea and treats following a day of shopping. It was a very quintessential British way to spend the day. The tea sandwiches were delicious and the desserts were decadent. The room is exquisite and brightly lit, which is great for photos.
