Sweet treats at Feya cafe, London

Feya Cafe, London

I can never resist a beautifully decorated cafe or restaurant and Feya was one of the top places that I wanted to try out. As you’ll know from one of my previous blog posts HERE, London has an amazing selection of Instagrammable cafes, with new ones popping up all of the time. I have been to a fair share of these and love to visit new places that open. So how does Feya compare to the other luxury cafes out there at the moment and would I recommend visiting? Let’s get into my review…

Interior design

Due to the popular success of Feya, they have opened up a second cafe. The original cafe opened in Marylebone just behind Selfridges in London and the latest venue to open is based in Knightsbrige, a short distance walk from Harrods. I have been to both branches and as expected, both are beautifully decorated. I love the attention to detail and the pretty girlie touches everywhere, right down to the little things like the gold cutlery. Each cafe has it’s own style of interior design.

The Marylebone branch is quite small but if you try and plan your visit earlier in the morning to avoid the lunch time rush, you should be able to find a table. This cafe has a pastel pink exterior and you are greeted with a counter displaying all of the delicious cakes and treats. Hanging from the ceiling are gorgeous white faux flowers and there are intimate seating areas with luxurious velvet chairs. The perfect setting for a coffee break on a day out shopping!

The Knightsbridge branch though is my favourite of the two. It’s a much larger space, filled with more seating area options. To the right hand side of the cafe are lush purple and green velvet scalloped edge chairs placed around marble tables and this side has an enchanted woodland type feel to it. To the right hand side of the cafe are the most amazing gold bird cage booths, surrounded by handing greenery and wisteria. It’s a gorgeous mix between the marble tables, gold accents and burgundy velvet seating. They have thought of everything with the design of this and even the ceiling is a beautiful navy blue with twinkly lights across it.

The Food

Ah the food! This should be the real reason that anyone goes to one of these places, rather than just for capturing that cute Instagram shot. Feya offer a brunch menu, a savoury menu, or a choice from their dessert menu. Each time I have visited I chose from the brunch menu and I ordered the Wisteria waffles which is like an actual piece of art when they bring it out to you! A delicious warm waffle, topped with pretty edible flowers, a scoop of ice cream, white & dark chocolate drizzle and a selection of mixed berries. HEAVEN!!

If you don’t have such a sweet tooth, then the savoury options are great such as a three cheese tortellini, avocado on toast, pasta, salads, toasted sandwiches or poached eggs with muffins.

Also to mention, apart from a lovely selection of coffees and teas, they also offer smoothies and the most delicious coolers and pressed juices which are a great refreshment for a warm day in the City.

Worth the money?

With these sort of high end cafes, you can expect to pay a premium so you expect it to be good, from the food, to the service and to the decor. I have been to other cafes in London such as Elan where I always find the service to be pretty rude, to the point where I don’t think I will ever go back to one of their cafes again. But with Feya, I have been more than once and would definitely go back and highly recommend visiting one of their branches when you are next in London. If you have a day out shopping, this would be just the sweet treat to finish off your day perfectly.

Breakfast at the Fendi Cafe, Harrods

Fendi Cafe Harrods

Fendi is one of my all time favourite designer brands, so as soon as I heard that Harrods were hosting a pop up Fendi cafe for the Summer I couldn’t wait to visit! Located on the 5th Floor of the famous department store is the brand new cafe which is fashionista heaven.

A couple of weeks ago I went to try out the new cafe and luckily chose a good time to go as when I as leaving there were queues to get inside. I believe the queues can be up to an hour long so plan your visit in advance if you want to go to avoid waiting in line for eternity.

Fendi Fabulous

The cafe itself is a contemporary, monochrome design with the Fendi logo everywhere you turn and it was designed by artist Joshua Vides. We were shown to our table and presented with the menu – which of course was also covered in FF logos.

There were quite a few delicious choices from breakfasts to full Italian style cuisine such as antipasti, insalate (the beef carpaccio is a house special) and mains of lasagne, aubergine parmagiana and more. As it was still early for me, I went for the breakfast pastries. The coffees are also decorated with Fendi logos and they are presented with an adorable logo biscuit. It is an Instagrammers dream!

Peekaboo bag customisation

At the till, there were some fabulous cakes which were replicas of the Fendi Peeakboo handbags that looked exactly like the real thing.

In July, there was a pop-up Fendi Peekaboo bar, allowing shoppers to fully customise their own Mini Peekaboo bags. Customers were able to mix and match the body, handle and straps, to create their own unique style. There were over 20 different options for the body of the bag, 25 variations of handles and a further seven strap possibilities.

The cafe is likely to be seen all over your Instagram feeds throughout the summer, from the branded walls, tables, menus, plates and crockery. But if you want to visit, it will only be open at Harrods until 31st August.

Trend Report: The rise of Instagrammable cafes

It seems like every other week there’s a new cafe or cake shop opening in London that gets everyone excited to visit. I love finding new places to try and there is a real trend at the moment for these Instagrammable hot spots.

Pretty Interior desings

The interior design of these places is what grabs the attention of visitors from friends, mums and daughters to influencers and bloggers, all looking to get that perfect Instagram shot whilst indulging in gorgeous treats. The interior design of these places are getting more and more extravagant too. It’s not just neon signs and flower walls anymore – its moved onto walls covered in love hearts, flower swings and even flying unicorns!

For today’s blog post, I’ve put together a list of some of the most Instagrammabe cafes in London that I love at the moment for you to try out.

Plan your visit before you go

The most important thing to remember before you go to one of these places is to plan your visit. I would aim to go on a week day when it’s a bit quieter rather than at the weekend. They are not always the largest of venues and they can tend to get a bit mobbed, especially on a Saturday. I would advise to go quite early too. Nine times out of ten, you cannot book a table so if you go during lunchtime hours you will have to wait and queue and there’s nothing fun about that.

1. Peggy Porschen Cakes

Peggy Porschen is one of the original famous cake shops in London, as well as being the most recognisable on Instagram. She certainly draws in a crowd! The pretty pink store is always decorated with flowers around the doorway and they change the displays throughout the year. For example Halloween last year they had a pink crystal flower skull, and for Valentines day they had a huge floral heart display.

The cakes are really good and its the perfect place to sit outside on their cute pink tables and watch the world go by. Due to how popular this place is, there is a time restriction on your stay but it’s definitely one of my favourite places to visit. They have also just opened a brand new store in Kings Road which I’m excited to try out soon. You can read about when I first visited the original store in a previous blog post HERE

2. Elan Cafe

Elan Cafe is one of the more recent places to rise to Insta fame and they are expanding at a rapid rate! There are now several branches to try and they are the most boujee cafes in London. Each branch is decorated differently so you will want to try them all. They all have a pretty pink theme throughout and are covered in stunning florals and fun displays such as the love heart wall and hanging unicorns. These cafes are literally every girls dream venue. They offer a lovely selection of lunches and pastries too. You can see the photos of my recent visit in a previous blog post here.

3. Knot Churros

If you have a sweet tooth then you will absolutely love this place. Choose from one of their signature churros with cinnamon, or one that’s dipped with Belgian or white chocolate. Or if you are really feeling extra, you can go all out and have a churro served with ice cream, topped with candy floss. I had to try this option of course!

It’s quite a small venue with cute booths and the tables have decorations on them as well as the beautiful swing which is decorated with hanging flowers in a sort of jungle chic setting.

4. Maitre Choux

From leopard print, to rainbow striped, to covered in sparkly gems, Maitre Choux pastries have it all. I love the pretty designs and when you see their decorated choux pastry fingers all lined up in the counter looking beautiful, you will just fall in love with them! I didn’t realise that these fingers actually have a chilled cream centre and I’ll be honest and admit that I don’t actually like the taste of them which is such a shame. But, they do have other styles that are non-cream filled options if that’s not your thing either. However, I love the Kensington store and it’s definitely worth a visit!

Saint Aymes

This place is on my to-do list of Instgrammable cafe places that I need to visit. It always looks so beautiful and the window is of course, always dressed to impress with gorgeous flowers. They are well known for their pretty pastel coloured unicorn lattes and 24 ct gold milkshakes. Watch out for future Instagram posts as I cannot wait to try this place out!
