Florals for spring might not be groundbreaking, but after the dreary grey of winter a bit of life and colour is exactly what we all need in our lives. From flower-filled walls to wisteria-covered exteriors, London isn’t short of floral restaurants and cafes for snapping the perfect Instagram shot.

Whether you’re after flower-drenched, pastel pink interiors or an outdoor terrace oasis, we’ve rounded up 17 of London’s very best posy paradises for you to explore next time you’re in need of a spot of brunch. Here are a few of our favourites…

17 floral restaurants & cafes in London to explore…

Linnaean

The term ‘Instagrammable’ gets thrown around from every corner of the internet, including The Handbook, but hear us out when we discuss our love for Linnaean, the wellness and lifestyle concept store in Embassy Gardens.

Linnaean ticks all of the boxes on interior goals, healthy wellness spots and a restaurant that’s almost entirely plant-based. 

When you arrive at the restaurant expect to be surrounded by pastel colours, florals galore and mirrored walls. It’s beautiful and it’s definitely worth snapping one for the ‘gram. The menu is heavily health-focused, so you know you’ll be in safe hands if you’re looking to keep on top of your healthy regime. 

The hair and beauty salon is also a must-visit if you fancy revamping your summer locks or to pamper yourself. The treatments and medi-spa use the finest technology and skincare products on the market.

EL&N

At the top of most floral restaurant London round-ups EL&N tops the charts, and it’s easy to see why.

EL&N is known city-wide for being a pink haven. Boasting several locations across London, EL&N is the go-to spot for wannabe influencers and interior lovers alike. Their interiors have become infamous and you’ve probably seen them adorn your Instagram homepage on multiple occasions. Expect flower walls, pink interiors, and latte art that’s next level.

Circolo Popolare

The Big Mamma Group has taken London by storm, with our favourite hideout being Circolo Popolare. 

The Fitzrovia restaurant came flooding onto the scene, bringing with it 20,000 bottles of spirits lining the walls, as well as floral vines draped from corner to corner and a whopping 280 covers, so it’s fair to say it’s a pretty mega restaurant. In true Big Mamma Group style, it’s got that sense of a traditional Italian trattoria, much like its sister restaurant Gloria, and the atmospherics don’t stop at the interiors. The food is simply divine too. The prettiest flowery restaurant of all.

The Ivy Chelsea Garden

The Ivy Chelsea Garden always has some exciting takeovers, boasting breathtaking floral installations. 

From enchanting winter pop-ups to Chelsea Flower Show-inspired incarnations, there’s always something flowery to look out for.

Just look at their beautiful outside installation from the past, perfect for snapping a photo for the ‘gram before you head in for a light lunch or dinner, or just enjoying while you roam the local area.

South Place Hotel

You’ve seen us declare our love for South Place Hotel’s beautiful mystical garden on numerous occasions so it’s no surprise that we’re here chatting about it once more. 

Every year their outdoor terrace gets a floral revamp and this autumn, the Secret Garden has been transformed into an oasis courtesy of Cointreau. The space will be complete with hues of orange and yellow and a dedicated Margarita cocktail menu to boot.

100 Wardour

One place that knows how to put on quite the show is Soho’s 100 Wardour Street. Expect live music from rising stars in the industry to be performing on stage in their basement every Thursday through to Sunday.  

But they also serve up killer floral vibes in their brunching area. Tuck into dishes such as eggs Benedict with cured ham and hollandaise sauce; smashed avo on grilled sourdough; and ‘London cure’ smoked salmon, scrambled eggs and chives.

Another day, another floral cafe… Feya, located on Bond Street and Knightsbridge, is renowned for its Instagrammable scenes. You can expect all of the ‘gram cliches to be here, from hanging flowers to pastel rainbow smoothie bowls.

Dalloway Terrace

Changing with the seasons, Dalloway Terrace is always the first indicator that we’ve moved into a new season. 

Every season, they transform the space into a colourful oasis. This spring expect bright yellow tulips, daffodils and more, all complemented with a seasonal menu. This is our favourite floral restaurant spot in London.

Florattica 

Fancy visiting the largest floral installation in the UK? Of course, you do… Rooftop haven, Florattica, is home to a breathtaking dried floral arrangement designed by Brighton-based floral design studio, PHOHM. 

Spanning over 120m, this dried floral meadow is breathtaking. With a backdrop overlooking the city’s iconic skyline, it’s the perfect spot for a cocktail and light bites.

Aubaine

If you’re a lover of wisteria you’re going to want to head to one of Aubaine’s gloriously lilac-filled outposts scattered across London.

The French restaurant franchise is known city-wide for its culinary creativity and beautiful interiors. Whether you’re are a fibre-fuelled breakfast or you’re on the search of something new, like their ‘katsu breakfast’ (albeit not exactly the epitome of French cuisine), Aubaine is the best spot to head for breakfast with a side of florals.

Peggy Porschen

For a flower cafe in London, it’s got to be Peggy Porschen – it’s beautiful inside and out. From its rose-adorn exteriors to its pretty in pink pastries and cupcakes, we can’t get enough of their two London outposts. 

There’s always something adorable to work your way through, from pretty-in-pink cupcakes to afternoon teas pimped in florals.

Saint Aymes

One cafe that knows how to vamp up its window display is Saint Aymes, the Connaught Street cafe serving up beautiful sweet treats and fresh roast coffee. 

Founded by two sisters, Michela and Lois Wilson, Saint Aymes is known for its luxury confectionery seen at Selfridges, Harvey Nichols and Fenwick, and now boasts a glorious outpost on Connaught Street. Escape the hustle and bustle of London’s city streets and check in for a coffee and cake with a beautiful floral background.

Drunch 

Step up your brunch game with a visit to Drunch, the neighbourhood restaurant famed for its shisha, delicious food and floral exteriors. On the menu for brunch, you’ll find yourself tucking into avo toast, Nutella and toffee-filled doughnuts, and berry, banana, ricotta and pistachio-topped French toast. 

They’ve recently had a revamp too so head down to check that out – it’ll no doubt be truly Instagrammable.

ROKA Charlotte Street

ROKA Charlotte Street has become renowned for its overtly pink cherry blossom display nestled downstairs in the underground cocktail bar, Shochu.

Upon arrival expect a whole lot of pink action, Japanese whisky a’plenty and traditional robatayaki cuisine. Delicious.

Sushisamba Covent Garden

More of a jungle than a floral haven, but Sushisamba’s landmark restaurant in Covent Garden is breathtaking. As soon as you step inside you’ll feel as though you’ve been transported to a rainforest jungle rather than being tucked in the centre of London. 

The restaurant menu combines Peruvian, Brazilian and Japanese flavours in a rather unusual way but the result is effortless. We can’t wait to return to this little jungle haven.

Stem & Stem

A restaurant that doubles up as a florist you say? Possibly the most perfect combination for a springtime meal out. Go for a slow-cooked duck croquette, come away with a bouquet of peonies.

The concept revolves around an ever-evolving seasonal menu from Chef Ed Boarland, previously at Gordon Ramsay’s Royal Hospital Road.
