Top 4 most Instagrammer cafés in London

Social Media is full of great tips for cafés and restaurants all over the world. We have selected some super popular choices in London.

Café Sou & Bar

This French style café is part of the magnificent The Ned, the stunning 5 star hotel in the Financial District of London.

It serves a very Parisian breakfast that comes with tartine with butter and jam, fresh orange juice and coffee. There is, naturally, a delicious selection of French pastries if that is what you fancy. The interior at Sou is chic yet opulent doing total justice to the breath taking building and its very high ceilings. This is very grand looking yet relaxed and staff are exactly how you would expect them to be.

Peggy Porschen

If you like pink and fairy tale style, this is certainly for you. Peggy Porschen is the queen of pink in Belgravia and Chelsea where you find the two branches of this very successful brand.

Pink and purple flowers everywhere. I had a truly sensational salted caramel cake and a espresso. The staff were some of the friendliest I have ever encountered in this part of London. It can get extremely busy with people wanting to take pictures and a it is expected that those taking pictures inside ask the staff first. Beautiful cakes!

Dalloway Terrace

Another very busy venue famous for its interior and walls covered in foliage, this is a reference to the literary celebrity that was Virginia Woolf. The writer used to live nearby and has written extensively about Bloomsbury. One of her main works is entitled "Mrs Dalloway". A very attractive space serving delicious food all day. I recommend the afternoon tea which comes with adorable and delicious little treats and you can choose to have champagne with it. Staff are attentive and the Dalloway Terrace really is as beautiful as it seems from pictures.


There are six EL&N Cafés so far in London following a very successful story of its founder, Alexander Miller. They also seem to follow the pink and flower trend in the capital with plenty of inspirational quotes, but El&N is less of a fairy tale and has touches of contemporary interior design. Their pastry selection is very hard indeed to resist, even if the brand promotes itself as a healthy eating café. At the Selfridges branch I had a lemon tart with gooey merengue. Busy and dynamic it feels less of a place to relax and more of a café for a quick treat.
