Order a unicorn latte and grab a seat by the flower wall, because there’s a new café in town and it’s not just a pretty face….
Well actually is it that too… located on Connaught Street and framed in wisteria, Saint Aymes is quite possibly the most Instagrammable place in London.
Quite simply the super model of the London cafe scene, Saint Aymes is a bloggers’ dream with window framing flower walls…
Pyramids of macarons…
Blush pink furnishing, beautiful tiles and rose gold and copper everywhere. I immediately fell in love with the interiors and soon learnt that the furniture is for sale too… Great on the eyes but maybe not on my bank balance!
It’s a bijoux boutique with a seating area upstairs and a few more tables downstairs. Or if the weather behaves you can take a seat on the terrace in front of the wisteria.
There’s flowers just everywhere, meaning you can’t help but smile when you step into Saint Aymes, the result of the passion of sisters Michela and Lois Wilson. The sisters beat competition of hundreds of others to represent Virgin Start Up as Virgin Startup Ambassadors with their beautiful artisan chocolates hand painted with 23ct gold. Stocked in Selfridges and Harvey Nichols, the place at 59 Connaught Street is their first stand alone shop.
Fortunately I was in a group of five hungry bloggers and Instagrammers who were pretty much willing to order everything on the menu. As well as the hand painted chocolates, there are macarons, crepes, pastries and biscuits on the menu. The cakes are delivered daily, sourced from the finest bakers on Instagram.
Drinks wise, I opted for the 23 ct gold cappuccino where as others around the table chose the 23ct gold hot chocolate. Now I told you this place wasn’t just a pretty face… my cappuccino was heavenly!!
You can even be a little adventurous and opt for the signature 23ct gold Unicorn latte.
If you’re in a rush you can take your sweet treat away but I suggest having a long coffee date and lingering by the flower wall. The staff are incredibly friendly and helpful, you can tell the love and passion that’s gone into this place.
Hurry down there soon as I predict great things for Saint Aymes, and won’t be surprised to soon see queues around the corner. I know it’s my new favourite coffee shop already.
