Nearest Station: Marble Arch (Underground)
Earlier this week, I visited ‘Saint Aymes Chocolate’ cafe near Marble Arch Station. I’ve been looking forward to visiting here ever since it’s been all over my Insta feed for the past month or so. There certainly has the style to make this place really photogenic. This place is literally another Instagram heaven café, and you certainly will not be disappointed once you walk past. Literally, people love the floral wisteria decorations they have at their main entrance, and you always tend to find people snapping away whilst passing by. However, I do not blame them at all because it’s probably up there with the top list of the prettiest and enchanting cafes in London.
Saint Aymes had just opened up recently earlier this year with the two most kind-hearted sisters, Michela and Lois Wilson. It’s a perfect spot when the weather is warm enough to sit around wisteria-framed decorations and have Hot Chocolate with either some croissants or unicorn biscuits. Likewise, there serves breakfast too, if you’re feeling peckish for some food then you’ll be covered.
Not many people still know where this place is or know about it, so it’s best to be there quick to get those perfect shots as I can imagine this place will be overwhelmed with people during the summer period.
The interiors downstairs and upstairs are really eye-catching and you would easily fall in love with the amount of floral and antiques there is around here. Even though there are two beautiful floral walls upstairs, if it gets busy upstairs you can go downstairs and sit around another stunning floral wall display with a pink sofa to have your food and tea.
Gourmet hot chocolate was divine, but in my thoughts, it seemed quite expensive £9.95 for just one glass. Also, small unicorn cookies cost about £3.85. Although you may need some water along with you as it tends to dry up in your mouth, kindly enough Lois one of the co-owner provided me with some water to have along with the cookie.
These macaroons were one of the many most pleasant-looking treats on their table when you first enter this cafe.
Overall experience, I loved it, as Saint Aymes co-founders were really kind and welcoming. I would recommend visiting during the daytime if you’re looking to grab those perfect snaps. Although I did not have the food, maybe another day, the chocolates and the hot drinks here are a must to try. The pricing seemed a bit high for the items, but it was in Central London, where prices tend to be as high as its quality/style there looks out.
Currently, it is open from 10 am to 6 pm every day and Sunday from 11 am until 6 pm.Saint Aymes will be a perfect summer spot, especially with wisteria season being around the corner and I think people will be filling up their feed with wisteria. What are you most looking forward to this summer?
