Hotspots in London: Élan Cafe
If I am going on a trip somewhere, one of the things I do first is google the things I can do there or cool places where I can eat. Now we are living in the age of social media, some of these places just pop up on my Instagram feed. Élan Cafe in London has the most amazing decorations, has been called the ‘most instagrammble restaurant’ by many influencers and is loved by many celebrities. And for a good reason! Just have a look at how stunning this place is!
The interior features loads of flowers, small cute ones in vases on tables, flower decorations on the ceilings, in baskets, in blossom trees, and- of course, on thát amazing flower wall. The attention for detail in this place is absolutely amazing and the whole interior is absolutely stunning. Light pink pastel chairs match the marmer looking tables and green sofas and walls: there is plenty to take in! But make no mistake, it is not a typical girly place where you will only find teenage girls. There were loads of families, and men and women on dates. Very romantic boys if you are looking for a nice place to take your girl out and have some amazing food!
Of course, a place can look amazing but we are still here for the food! There are actually two locations in London, we visited the one in Knightsbridge, a few steps away from Harrods so perfect to relax after shopping. The cafe in Knightsbridge has an extensive menu, ranging from healthy classics as acai bowls, avocado on toast and salads to warm Middle Eastern dishes, sharing platters, soups and more.
We visited for breakfast, I had the acai bowl with banana, passion fruit, pomegranates and gluten free coconut and granola, and my friends went for avocado on sourdough. Both dishes looked stunning when they were served and more importantly- it tasted delicious! All ingredients we’re fresh and you could clearly see they put a lot of love and effort in their work.
What most people come to Élan Cafe for however is coffee and cakes. When you enter the cafe you are immediately greeted by an impressive display of beautifully looking cakes and pastries.
As we came in for breakfast we did not try any cakes unfortunately- but I cannot wait to be back and try some!
