Over the weekend we visited the new Elan Cafe in Knightsbridge. I've been so looking forward to trying this cafe since stumbling upon it back in December when we were on our way to Harrods. On that day there was a huge line outside so I thought it must be good! Lucky I wasn't disappointed. Not only is this the most instagrammable cafe in London, it also has really great coffee and impeccable service. The staff brought a high chair for our baby before we'd even asked and were really attentive our entire visit. We were really happy with our coffees and the kids loved their flavoured croissants. I hear the Spanish Latte is the best so will need to head back soon to try this!
You'll be blown away by the decor. An Instagrammers dream with marble, endless flowers, and coffee related quotes in neon. After our visit I was interested to learn who actually started such a pretty cafe. The brand was founded by Alex Miller, with the first cafe opening in Mayfair last August. This unstoppable Girl Boss then opened the Knightsbridge location in December and is also launching beauty products.
The Knightsbridge cafe is in the perfect location if you're after a day of museum hopping or shopping. The Victoria and Albert Museum, Natural History Museum, Science Museum, and Design Museum are all a short walk. If it's a day of shopping you're after then head to Harrod's which is just up from Elan Cafe.
