Rude Health Cafe

Much needed – a Californian style bright and airy cafe has opened just opposite Putney Bridge station where there was not much of an option for a coffee before this place opened! I love the vibe, the staff and coffee. I highly recommend it for brunch or a coffee.

It is also a great place to stock up on healthy cereal. I recently bought the sugar free oat puffs and I am super glad that someone is introducing sugar free cereal in London!

Cecconis of Mayfair

A place that can never get old and will always have that artsy vibe is Cecconis in Mayfair, an institution for all the PRs and Marketing professionals of the area! Nestled between Oxford Street and Old Bond Street, this place is a physically hidden gem of Mayfair yet so well known.

I spent a Thursday morning having back to back meetings at the bar and realised that for one the place serves amazing Italian coffee, and two the place has a distinctive interiors settings, very chic, Italian yet British. Its an ideal place for an early morning meeting and espresso as it immediately wakes you up!

I just couldn’t get over how they had the juices arranged, how classy!

Breakfasts at Aubaine!

Aubaine is becoming the new hang out spot for lifestyle bloggers in London and I have had the pleasure to be a part of these breakfasts hosted at various Aubaine locations. My favourite has to be the one at High Street Kensington. The beautiful corner location makes it a hidden gem of the area.

The coffees are always perfect and I always enjoy the lattes followed by some Eggs Royale and the amazing freshly baked breads. I highly recommend this place to those who are looking to have a relaxed catch up with their friends and colleagues especially for breakfast!

My latest visit was for a Cafe Gourmand at the Dover Street Aubaine where I enjoyed some sweet nibbles, the best being the pistachio macaroon along with a coffee on a Friday afternoon, put me in the right mood for the weekend!
