There’s no need for rose-tinted glasses in London when you have these cotton candy coloured delights right on your doorstep…
Palm Vaults, Hackney
Termed the most instagrammable café in London, Palm Vaults is a slice of paradise in London’s east end. We’re talking a plethora of plants, pastel cakes and – did we mention – pink? Lots of pink… Aside from a delicious (and decently priced) plant based menu, the café offers what we believe to be the best rose latte in London.
Kensington Roof Gardens, South Kensington
Tucked behind South Kensington High Street and resembling a Game of Thrones’ set is one of London’s best kept secrets – the South Kensington Roof Gardens. Okay, so you might be wondering why this made the short-list of pink places… The grass might still be green but it is home to the most popular bird on the planet at the mo- the flamingo of course! Enjoy a drink upstairs in their bar and hang out with your new feathery friends!
Peggy Porschen, Victoria
If the fact that the cupcakes have been hailed the best in London by Vanity Fair isn’t enough to have you running to this South London café and cake shop, the pink interior (and exterior) certainly will be! The entrance is embellished with flowers and the seating will have you feeling like you’re in a doll’s house. As for the cake, we recommend the strawberry and champagne cupcake. Yum!
Franks Cafe, Peckham
If it’s good enough for Joanna Kuchta it’s good enough for us… If you visit Franks’ roof bar in Peckham it’s compulsory that you take a photo in their bright pink stairway. It’s also a fab space to check out some indie art, grab a drink and enjoy the views of the city from above.
The Chapel Hairdresser, Angel
Not only will you find yourself sitting on a chez-lounge as you wait for your appointment, but this hairdresser dishes out flapjacks and millionaire shortbread with your creamy cappuccino. But the real reason it’s our favourite is for it’s beautiful pink hallway decorated with plants and complete with a grand chandelier. The perfect back-drop for your post cut selfie!
Sketch, Oxford Circus
We couldn’t write a list of pink places in London without mentioning the Sketch Parlour. Half art gallery, half fine dining restaurant, this is without a doubt the most picturesque rose restaurant in London. Perfect for a special occasion, you will feel like you’re in a fairy tale. Oh and whilst your there, remember to check out the pod-shaped loos…
