What better way to kick off the new year (finally, sorry about the wait!) than by discovering a brand new watering hole?

This little gem has been flying under the radar but I just know you’re going to love it.

How could you not when greeted by treats like these?

Pinterest worthy interiors like these…

… and walls like these?

Even the menus are millennial pink!

I was hoping for a place to banish the grey of January, and this place most certainly rose to the occasion!

It’s called Elan Café and it’s hidden away on an unremarkable stretch of the Brompton Road, a short walk away from Harrods.

They serve brunch, lunch, tea, coffee and cakes.

All of the usual cappuccinos and flat whites are on offer, and they’re pretty good. But when in wonderland, you really ought to order appropriately.

Rose latte, matcha latte, pistachio and raspberry croissants.

We popped in for brunch, so ordered up avocado toast and baked eggs.

Which I’m sad to say were pretty disappointing and only just edible.

But to be fair a place as sweet as this was always going to be about the cakes.

I wouldn’t go as far as to say this place is purely “for the Gram”, the coffee and cakes are delicious and well worth stopping in for should you be passing by.

The photo opportunities however are arguably worth crossing town for.

Find them at 239 Brompton Rd, Chelsea, London SW3 2EP

Open every day from 7.30am until midnight, ask for a table in the back.

For an Instagrammer’s heaven, this place really takes the cake!
