Our first Instagrammable space is the simple yet stand-out, radical yet refined Restaurant Ours, which is set in Knightsbridge. I love how nature has been brought into the space to create an unexpected ambience. It has a European menu and is stylishly chic.
Here we have the art deco inspired afternoon tea room in Sketch.
“One vision, one afternoon tea… In a room refined by a curious mind, a touch of humour…
It’s a work of art, a striking backdrop… It’s David Shrigley’s Gallery…”
Sketch has definitely worked its magic in creating a menu which is sure to delight. The pastries and macaroons are also delicious and with an interior to match this is definitely one of London’s top places.
Full of French culinary creativity, Aubaine, which has various locations in London has some of the best ingredients and pretty interiors which make anyone want to take out their camera.

Farm Girl Cafe
One of my favourite places for a quick brunch is Farm Girl Cafe in Notting Hill. They have various locations around London and a new restaurant that has just opened up in Chelsea. The interior reflects the Australian brunch scene and the food and lattes are deliciously healthy and incredible.
It’s a little hard to find green spaces in London, but wait until you enter Palm Vaults in Hackney. It’s a total Urban Jungle bloggers paradise. The Cafe is filled with hanging baskets and a offers a light interior for simple cafe dishes and cakes.
Dalloway Terrace named after the eponymous character created by Virginia Woolf, is an elegant, poetic and quintessentially English space. Set in Bloomsbury, the beautiful indoor-outdoor space is just a two-minute walk from Tottenham Court Road station. The terrace is fully heated in winter and the restaurant and bar offers the peace and charm of a secluded secret garden in the winter and a light, elegant and beautiful alfresco offering in the spring and summer months.
Grind is so cool. It’s urban and industrial, yet stylish. Set across various locations in London, the Grind is a group of cafe-bars and four restaurants. The Grind restaurants serve a breakfast menu, all day food menu and weekend brunch menu.
Bourne & Hollingsworth Buildings
Bourne & Hollingsworth Buildings is made up of seven distinct spaces. The space is filled with hanging baskets, full grown trees and trailing creepers, effectively bringing the outside in. Throughout the space there is an array of whitewashed floorboards, classic cornicing and light walls juxtaposed with bespoke ironwork, warm wood and antique armchairs and sofas reupholstered with thick patterned fabrics like Kilim and hessian.
Bar Douro was created as a way to bring authentic Portuguese food to London. With ties to Portugal traced back through the family, Bar Douro has matched exquisite Portuguese wines with all the tradition of the local Portuguese food.
