Every time I’ve walked past Elan cafe it’s always ben packed and filled with mainly women taking tons of selfies not to mention photos outside the very Instagrammable cafe. This day was no different. Ha!
My friend M and I met up on a Sunday, a day we expected to be quiet, for a Swedish fika (fika= a coffee and cake break) at this cute little spot at Market Place in Oxford Circus. Decorated in different shades of pink and colorful flowers, the cafe attracted quite a lot of people during the two hours that we were there. In fact, people were queueing up, more so because they wanted to sit by the flower booth.
We tried out their cakes, well M did, while I decided to go for their apple waffle with walnuts. The food wasn’t too bad, however, it is a bit pricey for the portion that you get. But I guess that’s central London for you!
Its outdoor area is really pretty and a great place for people looking to have some downtime with their company or just take some photos (I’m guessing for the gram) at a scenic place.
Have you visited Elan cafe? If so, what did you think?
