Palm Vaults Cafe Based in Hackney, East London. This little cafe has popped up on Instagram on many occasions, hence why there now taking reservations on weekend due to the exposure there have beeing receiving on social media. There use to sell just coffee and tea, but now there have added lunch, breakfast and brunch menu to their lists for people to indulge.

As featured on Time Out London Magazine and known to be one of the most Instagrammable cafes in London. Interior of Palm Vaults is pretty much all pink and green as you enter there have set of plants laid out on shelves and on the other side you have lots of colourful desserts laid out such as cakes, crosstown doughnuts occasionally, sandwiches, croissants and much more.

The staff members who work there are really kind and friendly, as much as we kept asking for requests. There were always happy to help us, whenever we required something. That’s probably why so many people love this place and are kept busy as there literally have people queueing up to book a table or to have a seat there so often due to great service.

When I first came to Palm Vaults with few friends, we had to wait for our turn at each table were fully booked, so we left that time and decided we will book ourselves in following week. When Saturday arrived, I had a glimpse of the menu and saw through Instagram pictures what was ideal to get, which is always handy. Therefore, after a while, I opted for the Smore Toastie and Matcha Latte. The Smore Toastie was filled with Nutella and Crumbled Oreo pieces, brioche topped with berries.

As I decided for the above Smore Toastie, my friend decided to go different and opted for the healthier option of purchasing the Acai Bowl. This certainly looked pretty amazing how the final outcome turned out to be.

The three magical lattes above we bought were the Matcha, Rose and Lavender Lattes. Although at first sight, we originally wanted those two colourful lattes, that has been seen on Instagram very often we kind of got mixed up and got warm drinks instead thinking those were going to be those colourful lattes.

The overall experience of Palm Vaults I felt was good, although I would have preferred more room to move around, as we were squashed into one corner and my legs would not fit when we first got our seats. I was uncomfortable to move around at times due to limited spaces. However, the staff members were nice enough to move us to another table close by, which was much more comfortable to sit around the table.
