What is the point of living in London and being obsessed with Instagram, if I can’t share my favourite spots with you guys. I constantly get messages about where I go, or what are the best places to visit when in London. I compiled this high level guide for you my darlings – good food and Insta friendly. The places that do not judge you for stepping on a chair or so, to get that perfect shot. Or possibly spend the first 30 minutes snapping and then needing your food re-heat it.

Chiswick Fire Station
197-199 Chiswick High Rd, Chiswick, London W4 2DR
It took me a while to get to visit this place. Once you do, there is no going back. It is cheap and the food is absolutely yum. And that decor!! Well you can’t really go wrong with pastels and cacti, can you?
Drake and Morgan, King’s Cross
6 Pancras Square, 6 King’s Blvd, Kings Cross, London N1C 4AG
I have already written an article about them, which you can check out here. Love the location, vibe and food. Again, not pricey at all, so very much recommended.
116 Ebury St, Belgravia, London SW1W 9QQ
The queen of pink everything. This place is a must visit when you are in London, even to just take a snap with it. If you are into gorgeous cappuccinos and cupcakes though, allow yourself an hour or so, to sit and enjoy the mastery.
Friends of Ours
61 Pitfield St, Hoxton, London N1 6BU
OK, I am not a super fan of East London but I appreciate its charm. Friends of Ours is a tiny establishment, that serves beautiful coffee and prepares yummy food. Go EARLY, it gets super busy and people wait in line for ages to get a seat.
75-77 Marchmont Street, London WC1N 1AP
My lovely @ailsacargill always takes me to the trendiest places. A couple of weeks ago we went to Bon Vivant and the food was fab, the interior is great for pictures and they have bottomless brunch. What else do you need?
10th Floor Montcalm Royal London House, 22-25 Finsbury Square, London EC2A 1DX
While we are talking about @ailsacargill and her enormous knowledge of all the best brunch spots, here comes the Aviary. Roof top venue in North East London with some of the best pancakes I have tasted. Writing this post, I learnt something about myself – I seem to like pancakes. If you ever do visit the Aviary, check out the bathrooms – pretty cool too.
I hope you enjoyed these venue tips. Part 2 is on its way.
