Instagram Heaven in Hackney Wick – Palm Vaults

Rain or shine this unique retro pink paradise is sure to brighten up your day! (Check out @palmvaults on Instagram to see what all the hype is about!) The decor, vibes, coffee and cake are to die for! A further account of theirs is @palmvaultsvintage – if you are dying to explore more of their style!

A definite must-see for the East London resident, however, a warning for students – possibly slightly more pricey than you would initially expect, but definitely worth it for a treat after a long or crummy week!

Palm Vaults provides a menu perfect for healthy food lovers – juices and smoothie bowls to die for, (and an amazing choice of freshly made pink cakes for those who aren’t..) and vegetarians and vegans – including vegan pink cakes! I first went with my best friend who is vegan, and she said the cake was a definite 10.

The cafe also oozes charm, quirkiness, retro, plants and PINK and is perfect for instagram lovers and bloggers alike. For coffee lovers – the most popular instagram is the Pink Latte, however, the Rose Latte is also fabulous and equally instagram worthy.

However, they do not take reservations – so get yourself down there fast!

New Must-Visit – Farm Girl Cafe, Portobello Road

Since I moved to London, this cafe was all over my instagram feed from numerous accounts – therefore I soon followed the official cafe instagram account, (@farmgirlcafe) and became obsessed, without having visited!! The cafe is exclusively Vegetarian and Vegan, which is becoming more and more common throughout London.

When we arrived it was a lovely sunny day in Notting Hill, so we were lucky enough to sit outside, but the cafe is equally vibrant and enticing inside. Both the atmosphere, and food, (best avocado toast with pomegranate ever with a side of their unique coconut bacon) did not disappoint. The food and location are so aesthetically pleasing for both instagrammers and bloggers alike – I highly recommend the very popular rose latte, (although for a coffee lover, I was definitely spoilt for choice with the hot drinks menu!)

The venue perfectly captures the eclectic nature of Portobello road and the vibrancy of Notting Hill and is perfectly situated in order to spend the rest of the afternoon exploring what the area has to offer. A definite must-visit!!
