This Totally Extra Café Might Be The Pinkest Place In 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 you want. And they are here to give it to you twice.

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

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

I say ‘place’, but there are in fact 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 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.
