The movie Chocolat in real life in the form of Cocomaya!

I had the pleasure of spending my Friday teatime at Cocomaya in Knightsbridge. It has to be one of the best Afternoon Teas I have had in a long time. Excellent service, a lovely host Anna and delicious lemon poppy seed cake. What more could one ask for?

Sitting in Cocomaya transported me to the movie Chocolat with the background music, the gorgeous tea cups and amazing art work!

They have a wide selection of teas and coffees and the staff is lovely. You must try this place out if you wish to escape the bustle of London and at the same time experience something divine.

The Mandarin Oriental Bar!

Mainly known in London for its most fashionable cocktails, I have happened to be there a lot of days mainly for meetings and of course, to keep myself going, their coffees! If you are looking for a semi relaxed yet formal environment, The Bar is the perfect place to go especially with the central location it has in Knightsbridge, it makes it extremely easy to pop in and out!

They do amazing cappuccinos – the velvety kind you look for with a sprinkle of chocolate!

Mari Vanna in Knightsbridge


One of the cosiest and coolest places you could visit for a taste of Russia. Replicating a Russian grandmother’s house, this restaurant serves delicious Russian food and amazing desserts and coffee! You must try the dumplings served with sour cream accompanied by a cappuccino.
A must visit! P.S. Make sure you closely observe the decorations!
