I love trying out new places with different backgrounds and culture. This cafe sits in the heart of Birmingham on Stratford Road and is always attracting its customers with its cool green colours and cute outdoor seating!

English Breakfast – Baked Beans, Toast (white bread), Hashbrown, Sausages, Turkey Bacon, Cherry Tomatoes, Mushrooms and Fried Egg – Ladana Cafe, Birmingham, UK

We ordered a full English breakfast and I can say everything tasted so good! I wasn’t too keen on trying the Turkey Bacon as the smell is not something I’m too familiar with (being Muslim and all who doesn’t eat Bacon lol) but it didn’t taste too bad for my first time! The sausages were lovely and the fried egg was crispy and delicious!

French Toast with Nutella Sauce, Strawberries and Blueberries – Ladana Cafe, Birmingham UK

The french toast were amazing! So light and fluffy! Very filling and tasted so well with the nutella and fruit!

Fluffy Pancakes with Nutella Sauce, Whipped Cream, Strawberries and Blueberries – Ladana Cafe, Birmingham UK

The fluffy pancakes were a catch! So succulent and filling! Absolutely loved this! The fruit really gave it an edge and wouldn’t mind trying this again!

Strawberry Mojito Mocktail – Ladana Cafe, Birmingham UK

My favourite would have to be the strawberry mojito mocktails! I had two! Very cool, refreshing and definitely hit the spot!

I would definitely recommend this place! It has a really cool atmosphere and is a great place to visit with family or friends!

Dinner at The Soho Oak Restaurant – West Bromwich, Birmingham, United Kingdom.

Before I begin, I need to praise my Indian friend Nav for introducing me to such a delicious cuisine! Since me and my friend are Muslim and she’s vegetarian we opted for the Veg menu! And can I just say it’s absolutely mouth-watering!

My Trip To EL&N Cafe London

Written by Layla

I planned an afternoon tea for my best friend as it was her birthday June 3rd and we decided we wanted to visit London’s most Instagrammable cafe’s!

I love trying out new places and especially if they are Instagrammable! This cafe was screaming with different shades of pink flowers, seating and neon lighting settings! My best friend’s birthday came at the perfect time as the weather was beautiful in London at 27 degrees! We got our summer dresses out and made our way to EL&N Cafe Lowndes Street!

EL&N Cafe Lowndes Street

EL&N Cafe on Lowndes Street sits perfectly on the corner with lavish pink seating outside. The staff in light pink t shirts and pink face masks, and the amazing bright pink flowers decorating the cafe.

To be seated indoors, due to Covid-19 guideliness in place, we had to reserve a table of four a week in advance. We arrived at our given time at 1:45pm, and were greeted at the entrance. We were told to follow a staff member down these spirally pink stairs which lead to our reservation table.

Adventure awaits, but first coffee – EL&N Cafe Lowndes Street

As we reached the basement of the cafe it was brightly lit with beautiful pink roses and flowers attached around cocooned seating areas. Arched windows with flowers blooming underneath and around the seating. We chose the booth that beautifully wrote ‘I love you a latte’.

Once we sat in our booth, we discovered a reflecting mirror fitted in the ceiling which complimented the neon EL&N lighting and surrounding decor.

We were four people and so we had ordered two portions of afternoon tea bundles which included a variety of sandwiches, cakes and cereal!

We also ordered peach teas which were very delicious and not too sweet! They were perfect and had pretty little colourful flowers to compliment the cafe.

I would definitely recommend this cafe as it was so Instagrammable, the hospitality was brilliant and the food was great! I know I will be visiting again as the pricing was not too bad either! It has such a vibrant atmosphere and you would definitely enjoy the vibe!
