London’s Most Instagrammed Restaurants

I think it is safe to say I'm working my way around London's most Instagrammed locations. Here I share my thoughts on some of London's most Instagrammed restaurants and cafés.

Would I be a blogger if I didn't mention what is arguably London's most Instagrammed café? No. The millennial pink cafe has the nicest selection of cakes and cute coffees. They also change up the decoration on the front seasonally. Do note that it can get quite busy, people do just turn up to take photos and not have cake which can be annoying when you're just trying to enjoy a latte AND the cake is £7 a slice which is insane. But you know what they say; do it for the gram.

Another Instagram favourite. Farm Girl Cafe is located on Portobello Road. I'm going to be honest though; there is only ONE pink table aka. the one that is probably the most Instagrammed table in the whole of London and somehow my friends and I were lucky enough to be seated there. They do a variety of coffees that come in all colours (I have the charcoal latte which was actually lovely). Inside looks very nice too. Be prepared to wait; we waited about 25 minutes for a table, people in the queue when we were seated were still there when we left.

Duck & Waffle

The photos in this section are a throwback to 2016 but Duck and Waffle still looks the same and still has one of the best views in London. Located in the Heron Tower Duck and Waffle is London's highest restaurant with unrivalled views. The food is pretty good too (and makes another good Instagram). You need to book a table well in advance but it is SO worth it. The food is good but this one is all about the view.

Milk Train

One of London's more recent additions is Milk Train Cafe. It's a ice cream cafe in the Covent Garden area. The ice cream is nice and there is a teeny-tiny flower wall where you can take photos of your ice cream and maybe get reposted (I did lol). The restaurant is half-instagrammable and half-not. They do cones surrounded in candy floss which are the most instagrammed but I thought I would save money and buy something I would actually eat.

By Chloe

Currently the only by Chloe located outside of the USA is in Covent Garden and it is fab (they are opening one in Tower Hill soon). by Chloe is a completely vegan fast food restaurant and is so popular. I've visited twice; the first time it was so busy there was nowhere to sit, the second time there was tonnes of space and it was much more chilled. It's pretty affordable and the food is fab.

Palm Vaults

I'm going to be honest, this one is a little like Milk Train; slightly underwhelming. It looks a LOT better on Instagram in real life but is still very cute. The food is good but basic, when we went there were a few things unavailable on their already small menu. Like Farm Girl, they have a menu of different coffees; I had the red velvet latte. I don't have much to say if I'm honest other than it's pretty but not as pretty as it is when it's filtered in Instagram.

Doughnut Time

Doughnut Time is a hole in the wall Doughnut Shop that I've seen on Instagram a tonne recently. It's cute and all the doughnuts have punny names, the one I chose was called I Make Honey Moves and Ella got one called Hotline Ring. It was quite expensive though, do I regret spending £4.50 on a doughnut? Yes, I think I do.
