It is probably one of the most popular images that you will see on Instagram at the moment but with good reason! The Peggy Porschen cake parlour truly is one of a kind. I have been past this shop several times over the years but have never actually visited, but after seeing so many fabulous photographs online I just had to go and see if it was as amazing as everyone was saying.
Located in Belgravia, and a short walk from Victoria Station, as you start to get closer you can see the beautiful pink building in the distance. It is covered in pretty hanging flowers and pastel colour wooden bee hives by the front door, and there is a selection of tables outside the front. The road itself has a lot of lovely stores, many of which are covered in large flowers which is so nice to see and an Instgrammers dream for the perfect photo opportunity! If you visit Peggy Porschen I recommend walking up the street to have a look around the area as it really feels like a secret little part of London. Even the local chemist is covered in hanging lilac wisteria.
We were seated very quickly and were handed a pretty menu to look through but we decided to go into the actual store to have a look at the rows of cakes that were available to help with the decision making. Choosing which one to have is the hard part! There were rows and rows of stunning cupcakes decorated with real attention to detail, as well as beautiful whole cakes which you can have a generous slice of. I decided on a slice of the English strawberry and champagne cake which was so light and delicious I was really impressed. Alongside this I had the classic English pot of tea. I love how all of the plates and tableware are all pink, running along with the whole colour scheme of the brand. At the moment there is a special Summer collection as part of the menu, including a really sweet range around bees, named Queen Bee. You can view this new special range here
I really loved the whole experience of visiting Peggy Porschen and definitely recommend it if you are ever in London.
