Fancy & Fashionable: Designer Cafes In London

We might be experiencing a cost of living crisis, but that hasn't stopped international designers from opening boujee coffee shops across the city. All about the logo interiors? After content for the 'gram? Simply came for a quality brew? From luxury names like Prada and Tiffany to elevated high street stores, get to know all the fashion brands with cafes in London.


Prada Caffé at Harrods, Knightsbridge

When it opened in April, it certainly arrived with a buzz. Bringing a slice of Milan to London's luxe department store, the Prada Caffé features monochrome chequered floors, pale green hues and tableware emblazoned with the recognisable logo. Choose from Italian coffee, wines and signature cocktails as you tuck into breakfast dishes, pizzettes, burrata or a whole host of dainty pastries.

The photo-worthy Prada Caffè is at Harrods until the end of 2023.

Tiffany Blue Box Café at Harrods, Knightsbridge

Long before Prada took over Harrods, Tiffany was doing its thing with baked goods, afternoon tea, and drinks on the ground floor of the Knightsbridge shop. From cute teapots to tiered stands and even the interior design, every inch of this cafe sings to the brand's statement blue. Make yours a breakfast at Tiffany, finished off with a Champagne cocktail à la Holly Golightly.

Anya Cafe, Belgravia

Known for her quirky collections and playful eye prints, Anya Hindmarch is the "handbag queen" you need to know. Located on Belgravia's Pont Street, the luxury designer cafe reflects her brand's fun approach. The menu includes monster cakes, caterpillar tarts, hand-dipped chocolates, afternoon tea and the famous chubby heart.

Thomas's Cafe by Burberry, Regent Street

One of the more lowkey venues on the list, Thomas's Cafe is an ode to the British brand by way of muted neutral interiors, linen tablecloths and simple furnishings. Among the wooden chairs and fresh flowers, you'll be met with secret smokehouse salmon, burrata salads, fancy toasties and a cake table within the West End flagship.

Ralph's Coffee, Mayfair

Making cawfee cute since 2014, Ralph's Coffee first launched in NYC and has since made its way over to New Bond Street. As it's one of the more famous cafes in London, expect queues come the weekend and Instagrammers snapping away. We've seen Wimbledon-themed set-ups, Christmas installations to rival Cartier across the street, and plenty more from Ralph Lauren's much-loved alfresco brewing spot.

Arket Café, Regent Street

High-street meets high-end at Arket, with quality essentials at the forefront of this Scandi brand. Swing by the Regent Street outlet, where you'll be met with an in-store coffee shop touting vegan and vegetarian bites, fresh coffees, and a minimal aesthetic. It's not just tees and hoodies for sale here, guys.

From the same group as H&M, Arket promises quality from its clothing to its coffee.

Carhartt Coffee, King's Cross

For those of you after something a little more down to earth, there's Carhartt Coffee. Over the years, the label has shifted from simply being functional workwear to becoming a staple in any trendy kid's closet. Not only will you find exclusive products in the King's Cross store, but also a compact, fuss-free coffee shop plus wifi and a small counter for working.

If you came for the coffee and none of the fluff, Carhartt has you sorted.

Marchesi 1824 by Prada, Mayfair

Chocolates, pastries and baked goods are the name of the game at Marchesi 1824. A historic cafe that was opened almost 200 years ago in Milan, it was bought by the Prada Group and has since found another home on Mount Street. Think sourdough panettone, opulent Christmas cookies, decadent eggs come Easter, and aperetivo hours soaked in Campari.
