My favorite places in London
Every now and then, I end up realizing that I need to escape my little Swiss town and go explore the world. Nothing better than a train or a plane ticket and absolutely no precise program. What’s your favorite destination guys ? For me it has and always will be Paris. But let’s be reasonable, one can’t always go to Paris. My wallet would be empty if it was the case.. Uncontrolled carefree hectic shopping issues. So for this time I’ll be writing about London, for a change !
Anyways, I wanted to share with you some of my “secret” (not so secret tho) spots, those are the places I like to go every time I travel there.
The Ivy Chelsea Garden
2. Ping Pong - London
This might be my favorite spot ever for delicious yet quite cheap dim sums and bao buns !
3. Abuelo - London
This coffee place is one of a kind ! The interior is so cute and original, plus their cakes and avocados toasts.. to die for !
4. Peggy Porschen
Not my fave place ever but if you happen to go there out of the busy hours.. It’s a cute spot ! Definitely go there when it’s not too cold outside because you’ll have to sit on the terrace, there’s absolutely no decent space inside.
5. Farmacy - London
This place is everything ! Do book a table if you go there for lunch tho.. Or you’d have to endure rejection at your arrival unfortunately.
6. Elan Café - London
This place got it’s fame thanks to the Gram, countless bloggers wanting to pose with their cute slice of cake an the excessively flower decorated walls and ceilings. I love this place ! Also hate it for the same reasons.
It’s definitely a love-hate relationship. If you go there, don’t waste your time having a salty dish by the way, not that impressive, focus on the cakes. Special love for the vegan pumpkin/coconut/pineapple cake.
7. Bluebird shop - London
Such an amazing shop ! I love this place, all the brands they sell are amazing, the space is amazing, all of it is great !
8. The Avo Bar
Best place ever ! If you are an avocado addict, like me. If you go there definitely order the avocado on the sweet potato “toast”. This was my 2018 revelation.
9. The Liberty’s flower shop
I always loved the scent of flower shops ! This one is particularly pretty, I always like to make a quick stop there.
