When it comes to London nobody can say you could ever run out of Instagrammable places, pretty colorful buildings, and flower corners. But since I’m a huge coffee and dessert lover, I’ve decided to do the research for you and to present you: the most Insagrammable cafes and dessert places in London.
As you might imagine there are plenty of options, and you won’t manage to see them all on a weekend trip to London. But that’s just more reasons to come back over and over again, right?
I personally love London and have visited several times, and no matter the season the town is awesomely pretty. Always leaving me wanting more.
Another thing which I love about London is that there’s always something going on. A new place with delicious colorful desserts, a fancy flower-filled coffee place, a rooftop with stunning views. There’s just so much out there to discover.
Most Instagrammable Cafes in London (watch out for the deserts as well)
Maybe the most famous coffee place in London, if you’ve ever looked for pretty pink places you surely have stumbled upon it by now.
Not only the place is pink, but also their desserts look mindblowing! Savory or sweet, pancakes or muffins, you can’t go wrong with this place, but I guess you must make sure you have a reservation since it is such a popular place.
Belgravia: 116 Ebury Street, Belgravia, London SW1W 9QQ
Maybe as famous as the first one on the list, this house of afternoon tea is so pretty it hurts.
With 2 locations in town to choose from, you can indulge in a lush meal and take some of the prettiest Instagram pictures.

More pink coming your way! Not all the places I chose to include on this list are pink though, I promise. But somehow, pink is a great instagrammable color, and we all love it don’t we?
Moving back to EL&N cafe, previously known as Elan Cafe, it is another spot you most certainly have spotted making its way into your Instagram feed.
The love heart walls, the pink everything from walls, tables, ceiling. They currently can be found in 8 locations, so good luck with exploring all of them in one go! Just kidding, you don’t have to.

Treves & Hyde
More focused on the food than the previous ones, this place is still as lovely and has a lot of picture potential. And I haven’t seen it in everyone’s London picture, thus you can be special.
While all their locations are super pretty, the one in Selfridges is one of the most Instagrammable cafes in London because of its wisteria wall.
I mean really, who doesn’t love wisteria? I’ve been charmed even before knowing its name.
Changing decor with the change of seasons and popular celebrations, at Harry’s Bar you will find flower hearts for Valentine’s Day, colorful flowers for Spring, and lovely Christmas decor during winter.
The interior is fancy and the food looks impressive as well.

This is for sure a place which knows how to go big or go home. Their decor is jaw-dropping no matter the season, but if you go for before Christmas you’ll see how impressive this place is.
You’ve guessed it, even more pink! Along with the neon lights and the signature red cups, this is also a place for incredible coffee.

Yes, you’ll know what season it is as soon as you step inside Dallaway Terrace.
I just don’t know which decor I love most: pretty flowery Spring, the incredible colors of Autumn, or Winter season in a pine tree forest.
Not only the flower-filled entrance makes this place one of the most Instagrammable cafes in London, but also the coffee and food here look amazing.
As in other places on the list, the decor changes along with the seasons, making you want to go back over and over again.
Have a coffee, create your own biscuits, but take your camera with you because you’ll want to take some pictures of this place. Both the exterior and the interior of this pretty place will charm you from the first second.
Lady Dinah’s Cat Emporium
One of my kind of places! Ok, all the others on the list are my kind of places as well, but this one brings something new on the table: cats!
I love cats. I could say I’m a crazy cat lady without the cats. And that’s just because of my husband. But I take the chance whenever I can and wherever I am (Hong Kong, Seoul, London) to go and drink a coffee or tea with cats around me.

2019 vs 2014 Continued! ———————— Granted, the 2014 photo we've got the furniture stacked for cleaning, but notwithstanding – quite a transformation for Tables 16 and 17! (This is a repost from yesterday – we had the Instagram woes that everyone else had!) Lately we've had a lot of guests, particularly from overseas where regulations are different, expressing surprise that there are litter trays in the cafe (pictured here on the bottom left). Our cats trays are indeed scattered around the cafe. Usually they don't use them during the day, but if they need to, they need to, and we don't keep them far away. It could be stressful for a cat to reach a toilet thats hidden off in one location away from their main territory, especially if guests or other cats are blocking access. So litter trays are everywhere, cleaned frequently, and we're not sorry: It's one of the Five Freedoms of Animal Welfare that animals have free access to toileting facilities. If a cat uses a tray near you, simply notify a staff member if they haven't noticed yet and they'll get the cat carer to clean it immediately. #animalwelfarefirst
Rachel’s Nails and Coffee
Not only a place where you can drink your coffee but also a great nail place. And while you do all that, take some Insta perfect pictures!
Dominique Ansel Bakery
So excited to learn that starting 2020 we’ll have this bakery also in Hong Kong! But coming back to the reason why we’re here, the place in London is a must-visit, not only because of its mouthwatering famous desserts and delicious coffee but also because of its design.
A true gem on the list of the most Instagrammable cafes in London, this is another one that changes along with the seasons giving you more material than you could ever dream of.
Farm Girl Cafe
Pretty locations, even prettier food, pink tables that make a perfect background for all those Instagram pictures, and let’s not talk about the coffee.

Cube Cafe Camden
A pretty less known place, hidden in Camden Town. Maybe it does not have all the flower displays or it won’t steal your eyes with the covered walls, but this place still looks amazingly cool.
Come here for fresh food and drinks, great coffee and some nice pictures along the way.
Aaaand we’re back to the girly cafes, filled with flowers and good vibes.
Come here for flowers: on the food, on the walls, and everywhere. This would definitely be my place and I would come here over and over again for coffee and brunches. And you wouldn’t judge me for that, because you understand. Just look at this place!
Brunch, lunch, dinner, or just a coffee, this is the place that won’t disappoint. And will do so in style and such a classy location.
I also love their website and the fact that they have flowers showing up when it’s loading.
The Knot Churros
I must admit I’m not a huge churros fan, but this place is simply too much to miss out on! For the Instagram addict in me, this is such a perfect place.
The Ivy Chelsea Garden
Everything is just too beautiful about this place, and I don’t have to mention we’re back at the flower decors. But not only.
No matter the month or the season, this place has something new to impress you with.
