Élan’s Café is another Instagram favourite. They have several branches so Hazel and I visited the Mayfair Cafe on Park Lane. The beautiful pink and cream flowers draw you into the venue. The décor was pretty and girly with floral arrangements, baby pink chairs and marble tables. We were seated at a table and a sign stuck out with the words “Adventure awaits but first coffee”. When you open the menu you are presented with a love story about the origins of the coffee used at the popular café.
We were starving when we arrived so decided to grab a small bite to eat before digging into some cake. We both chose the Chicken fillets and shared some fries. The chicken was lovely and moist with a crispy batter. The tomato sauce went well with the chicken adding a tangy spicy taste. Once we finished, we were ready for the main attraction; cake.
There was a wide variety of cakes to choose from. They had cupcakes, cakes and cheesecakes. I chose the Cherry and Chocolate Cake. The slice was massive. It was very sweet but it didn’t stop me from finishing it. Unfortunately, Hazel didn’t enjoy her cake and sent it back.

Overall, the venue was beautiful and the food was tasty. I wouldn’t rush back but it’s a place I can tick off my list. I prefer Peggy Porshen (check out my blog post here to find out more).
