London eateries are more than just fish and chips and a pint. There are so many beautiful places you can take a seat and enjoy a meal, where you can also take a gorgeous photo if your food and the interior. If you like to eat at a place where the food is just as pretty and the facade, this list will be a great place for you to start your foodie journey in London.
FARM GIRL CAFE
This is one of the most Instagrammed cafes in London, so get there early or on a weekday to avoid a queue for a table. They have a lovely rose latte with real roses and their menu is on point.
Coffee is obviously great, but it’s even better when sipped in a beautiful setting. This cafe is in a gorgeous old church and hidden away from the buzz of the city.
The hottest new Instagram craze in London is Elan Cafe. It’s perfectly pink and just screams to be photographed. Because of its popularity, there may be a wait to get in, but it’s worth it. There are a few spots around the city, so you have options for which one you visit.
If you like pink, feminist themes, and tasty cocktails, go to Tonight Josephine. This hotspot is near Waterloo Station and will draw you in with its neon lights. It’s best to make a reservation to ensure you get a table.
LADY DINAH’S CAT EMPORIUM
Afternoon tea is great, but add in cats and it’s even better. The ambiance of the building is very chic and it’s always wonderful to be in the presence of cats. It’s definitely something to do in London if you have the extra time and want to at least say you’ve done it. Make sure you book far in advance though, as they have a reservation system required to enter.
If you’re into vegan food and love the millennial aesthetic, head out to Hackney to find Palm Vaults. Here you’ll find lattes with glitter and tasty, healthy treats.
JARDIN DU JASMINE
This Middle-Eastern inspired cafe is making the rounds on Instagram, and it’s easy to see why. The food is great, but the interior is so unique and beautiful and makes for a lovely place for a meal.
HACKNEY COFFEE COMPANY
If you need a spot to get some work done, Hackney Coffee Company is a great place to do that. It’s the epitome of hipster cafe, but it’s got a lot of space to set up your laptop and get to work.
