Unique coffee versions have been popping up all over London, from the charcoal-coloured in Notting Hill, to the yellow turmeric ones in Shoredich.
But despite its pretty pastel streets, I’ve had such a hard time in the past in finding really tasty and unique coffee spots in Chelsea. I don’t just want the pretty coffee- it’s got to taste good too! There are a couple of nice spots to enjoy one, like Juicebaby and L’eto, but as much as I love them I’ve always felt that I haven’t found the place.
We headed over to Kings Road in a bid to try and find a new place to enjoy a caffeine fix, stopping in some of the pretty roads along the way (with all those gorgeous hues, we couldn’t resist!)
Shop similar/the look: (some of these items are special edition/bought abroad or a while ago but I did my best to be as close as possible! Others are the exact finds:)
I’d definitely recommend Saatchi Gallery if you’re in the area! It’s one of my favourites for modern art. Normally we go to Saatchi and then after to Partridges (a super lovely food shop) for treats.
We’d gone on the perfect day- the sun was out (I could get used to this amazing weather in London!) and there were, despite the weather, not too many people around.
We soon realised why there weren’t too many people around- practically everyone had flocked to the nearest cafe to enjoy a drink (or more…)! We’d gotten carried away buying truffle cheese and snacks at Partridges, and all the food and the exhausting hunt for fattening foods (hihi) had left us parched.
So we decided to resume our search for unique coffee spots in the Chelsea area, this time heading over to quiet Belgravia and my favourite street in London- Elizabeth Street.
While walking through Elizabeth Street, we came across Tomtom Coffee House, a spot I’d always overlooked. I was about to walk past it for maybe the thousandth time, when suddenly I spotted it:
Two people inside having a pink latte and a green one too. Unique coffee spot quest completed!
We chose a table outside because the weather was so lovely, and asked the waiter for one pink [beetroot] latte, and a matcha. They couldn’t have been more perfect.
I’d changed my pink sweater for a more casual blue and white striped sweater with matching bag, never expecting that the colour would clash so nicely with our drinks hihi…
… but match the ice-cream perfectly. Was it a sign? We definitely thought so 😉 You can guess the rest…
