A mix and match this June with my favourite discoveries and some old favourites. The beauty of London is that it is the gift that keeps on giving when it comes to spots to have a cuppa.
One unexpected new favourite this month. I mean have I been living under a rock never to have visited this place before? Smack down in the middle of Piccadilly Circus? I was a bit shocked with my own lack of knowledge about this place’s existence. Thanks to my beautiful friend @anamaria.marin I got to discover it. Brace yourselves – it is huge. The top floor Brasserie does not do justice to the space that occupies 3 rooms 2 floors down. However, the decor of the Brasserie literally stole my heart and I cannot wait to go back to London and get there for an early morning coffee, where there would be no people. The restaurant is beautifully decorated and I did not get a chance to snap it this time but hey, it is an excuse to go and visit again. The food was delicious and relatively on the decently priced side for what it was. So thumbs up. You need to book if you fancy dinner.
This Notting Hill gem is nestled away from the main hustle and bustle of the area. The decor is Insta top spot in Notting Hill and their bowls are the healthy meal you need to kick start the day. Just pop in when you are around the corner and during the sunny days, you can hang outside too.
A bit of a detour for me, back at the canals behind Paddington station, an area I have never really explored. KUPP is a Scandinavian inspired restaurant with funky breakfast food (OK, funky for me, probably not that funky for the Scandi guys) and beautiful decors. It is good for groups, as it is huge and it is also right off where the GoBoat boats start, if you are into floating around the canals.
Zetter, this absolute legend for day and night. I love Zetter Townhouse, the decor, the food and the stuffed cat. The light in this place inspires me, and I can keep on taking photos of that 1 cup of coffee forever. I do think it is more of a winter, cosy venue, however the ‘Geraniums at the door’ campaign brightened it all up and brought summer in and out.
