The Most Instagrammable Cafes in London

London is famous for its pretty cafes and the foodie that I am was very happy to discover some of them! I have gathered here for you the list of my favorite addresses to enjoy good food in a lovely environment. Here are the most Instagrammable cafes in London!

I mentioned in the details if those places offer vegan, gluten free or dairy free options. 

With its cute pink facade and pretty cupcakes, Peggy Porschen was on my list since ages. Many places do not live up to their reputation, but Peggy Porschen didn’t disappoint! That’s why it deserves to be number 1 of the most Instagrammable Cafes in London! Founded in 2003, the company is headed by award-winning cake designer, author and Creative Director Peggy Porschen. This is the reason why the cakes are so elegant and full of flavours!

I had the opportunity to try the seasonal autumn cupcakes in 2019 and the Christmas ones in 2022 and they were all cute and delicious! They are worth the hype!

I have been to the Chelsea and the Belgravia parlours: they are both nicely decorated and cosy. Their storefront decorations are seasonal and beautiful, so you shouldn’t leave without taking a photo!

Vegan and gluten free options

LocationsPeggy Porschen Belgravia and Peggy Porschen Chelsea . The Chelsea parlour is the flagship store and it’s bigger.

My secret tip: they also serve brunch so you shouldn’t limit yourself to the cupcakes and explore the menu! I recommend the Peggy’s pink breakfast bowl and the Eggs Benedict.

Elan Cafe

EL&N Cafe (aka Elan Cafe) is definitely has some the cutest cafes of London! I am obsessed with their flower walls and they have the prettiest pink cakes I have ever seen! Two reasons to put them high on the list of the most Instagrammable Cafes in London 🙂

On the table you can see the pink raspberry croissant, the cheesecake, the red velvet cake and the eggs Benedict. They also have a very cool selection of lattes: the pistachio latte and the charcoal latte were very good!

Locations: they have several locations in London


Vegan, gluten free and dairy free options

I did not hear a lot about Feya before my 2019 trip to London… But this cafe was such a great surprise! I didn’t hesitate to add it to the list of the most instagrammable cafes in London! 

A beautiful tree with white blooms is ornating the place with comfy pink velvet design chairs and bench seats. The cakes and  pastries are presented on the counter and all look very appealing!

The bicolor pastel rainbow smoothie bowl was delicious as was the red velvet cake! Their recipe of the Eggs Benedicts with a pink beetroot hummus sauce is yummy a and original. And on top of that, they create really beautiful and tasty latte art, the prettiest being the hot chocolate (the one with the tree in the photo)!

The team behind Feya is quite impressive: the chef Zahra Khan is a graduate of Gordon Ramsay’s Tante Marie Culinary Academy and the breakfast menu is designed by Finnish Award-winning blogger and cookbook author Virpi Mikkonen.

Vegan and gluten free options

Location: Feya Bompton Rd, Feya James St, and Feya Marble Arch.

Dalloway Terrace

In the heart of the vibrant area of Bloomsbury, you will find the Dalloway terrace. This outdoor restaurant has a fully retractable roof but also heaters and blankets, which makes it a perfect restaurant to visit whatever the weather! Their seasonal floral decoration creates the atmosphere of a secluded garden and is very photogenic! Therefore Dalloway Terrace had to be part of my article about the Most Instagrammable cafes in London!

In autumn it’s all about fall colors and cosy vibes as you can see in the pictures. Therefore you will feel like you will never want to leave the terrace after your meal!

I experienced their afternoon tea. In the menu you have a selection of sweets, scones, savories and tea/coffee for £40 person. You can also add a glass of champagne for £10 to £20 more. It was very tasty!

Fait Maison

With its flowers on the facade and its girly and elegant decoration indoors, Fait Maison is one of the most Instagrammable cafes in London! Om Waleed (aka Yvonne Osman) is the Executive Chef and Creative Director at their flagship tea room branch in Gloucester Road SW7.

The extensive menu will make you travel with many Middle Eastern recipes and some great traditional brunch dishes with a twist.

Saint Aymes

Saint Aymes was for sure designed to take pictures! As soon as you arrive, you will see the flowery storefront and understand what I mean: it’s a real piece of art! The cafe is full of flower walls and pretty corners to capture. It’s for sure one of the most instagrammable cafes in London!

Food wise, the menu is full of cute and yummy options: among others their signature Unicorn Lattes, 24ct Cotton Candy and Rose Teapuccino. I had a cupcake and the pink berry granola with coconut yoghurt. They also have a list of savouries.

Brasserie of Light

Brasserie of Light is such an original location with an art deco vibes. Contemporary, artistic and elegant, the place features bold, colourful and light filled interiors. The centrepiece to the restaurant blew me away: Pegasus, a piece of artwork by Damien Hirst, is a 24ft crystal encrusted statue with a 30 ft wingspan which soars over diners with hooves lifted! The bathroom is also very photogenic, it deserves a visit! Put Brasserie of Light in your list if you want to visit Instagrammable cafes in London!

I went there for breakfast. The menu is a mix of British and internationally-inspired dishes. There is a great choice of eggs, a full english breakfast, a vegetarian breakfast and some sweet options like pancakes or yoghurt and granola.
