The Utterly Extra Elan Cafés Are Opening Two New Stores Off Oxford Street

share on:
Elan Cafe Pink London

The pink-perfect Élan Café is the best place in London for a cheeky ‘gram of cake.

The good people of Elan Café know what the internet loves. And not content with their two existing stores in west London, they announced today they’ll be opening two more – one in Market Place near Oxford Circus, later this month, and one in Selfridges, in October 2018.

That’s double the opportunity to soak in some of these vibes:

Elan Cafe Brompton Road

These guys dish up breakfasts, brunches, lunches, cake and coffee in a pink-hued paradise.

Elan Cafe Knightsbridge

Why yes, that is a ‘ruby latte.’ The whole place is just deliciously extra.

I say ‘place’, but there are currently two Élans in London: one just off Park Lane, and the other in Knightsbridge.

Let’s talk about the food. There are wholesome breakfasts as colourful as they come. Think chia porridge with cashew milk and blueberry and maple toppings, and various fruit bowls.

For savoury daytime meals, their menu is infused by Middle Eastern flavours – flatbreads with grilled pepper and chicken, aubergine and harissa, or a Syrian cauliflower hash.

This transparent teapot holding a floral brew is pretty natty, too.

The Knightsbridge branch is perfectly placed for a jaunt around the V&A Museum’s latest art exhibition, while either would be a good staging post before a wander through Hyde Park – perhaps to the Serpentine gallery?

But mostly it’s a chance to Live Your Best Life™️ and rack up those likes.
