My gorgeous parents came to visit me today so obviously, I had to take them to the prettiest/pinkest place I could think of: Peggy Porschen Cakes.
As soon as I saw Peggy’s whilst wondering the streets of Chelsea, I knew I had to take my Mum. There is no denying that it is probably the most Instagrammable corner in London and it was only made more magical by the Christmas market down Ebury Street, where the cafe is located in Belgravia.
Despite the fact that I love Star Wars and GTA I am still a huge self-confessed girly girl so this place was literally a dream come true for me – afternoon tea is my favourite pastime in the whole world.
We had to queue for about 20 minutes before there was a table available because it is so popular. When we finally got in, we were met with a slightly chaotic, but very cosy atmosphere. There was a buzz from the mixture of people crammed into the small space and Christmas songs playing in the background.
Whilst waiting for our orders, I got the chance to take some pictures to show you lot. I was so excited I took photos of everything with absolutely no shame. I imagine it looks gorgeous all the time but with the extra sparkle of Christmas in the air, it felt even more special. The windows were dusted with snow, there were Christmas trees covered with sugar cookie baubles and gingerbread houses scattered everywhere. Everything matched one theme: pink. I have never really considered pastel pink to be overly Christmassy but altogether it worked – I felt positively festive.
Aside from the decor, the most important part of afternoon tea has to be the cake. Peggy’s has the most amazing array of cakes and biscuits, I was well and truly spoilt for choice. They had every flavour of cupcake imaginable, macaroons and even champagne flavoured cake. Naturally, I had to go for the biggest slice. When in Rome do what the Romans do right? I went for the lemon, raspberry and rose flavour with a cup of tea (I even forgot to take a cute picture before I started, that’s how excited I was). It was amazing. I felt faint afterwards due to the amount of pure sugar I had consumed but it was definitely worth it.
I left Peggy’s feeling warm and fuzzy with pink-tinted sight. It was a really wonderful afternoon spent doing my favourite thing, in a lovely place, with my favourite people.
If anything this Christmas, you have to find a friend or a family member and take them to Peggy Porschen’s Cakes. I’m not being dramatic when I say, it was literally a dream.
Hugs and wishes,
