Once upon a time, there was a little cafe in heart of London’s Belgravia called …

Nah, I’m only just kidding.

This ain’t no fairytale story, but what we are talking about is one fairy tale looking place. Sitting on a quiet corner of London’s Victoria and just off the beaten track is the prettiest, pinkest, most instagrammable coffee shop/cafe/dessert heaven you will EVER see, and it’s called Peggy Porschen.

More on notsobasiclondon.comPeggy’s (the not so posh shortened name) is the Tiffany Jewellery equivalent of the cake world (if only we could afford!) It’s the creation of a German baker by the same name who has baked for the likes of Kate Moss and Elton John. They do a range of the most beautiful sugary treats…

…and if the outside has got you scrambling for your camera wait until you go in.

More on notsobasiclondon.comIt’s fair to say it’s a pretty tiny place once you’re in, but instead of using that word quaint comes more to mind. As well as pretty bloody gorgeous. (Even though that’s three words.)

Walk in and the first thing you’ll see a large cabinet filled with cupcakes, cookies, biscuits, loaf cakes and layer cakes. As well as a menu of hot drinks to wash em down.

Being in one of London’s richest boroughs it wouldn’t be very fitting if there wasn’t any flavoured with champagne too…

Essentially a fridge cake with no baking involved. Full of nuts, marshmallows and of course chocolate biscuits.

More on notsobasiclondon.comOkay, like we said, it is in one of Londons most expensive areas so it doesn’t make for a cheap afternoon treat. A cuppa and a cake will probably set you back between £8-£10ish. BUT what you gotta remember is your paying for a whole experience. The stunning place, location and of course all the professional baked treats. You can rack up a bill like that just at Starbucks or Costa! (no offense – still love ’em.)

So, what’s the moral of this story? Your not gonna go every week let’s face it. So, one weekend take your camera, a friend or just a book and treat yourself. Maybe take me too.

    Someone sent a box of cupcakes to our office a couple of years ago, and they were so pretty and super tasty! I keep meaning to go to the cafe for a slice of cake, although I know I will have a hard time choosing which to have!

    My question is how did you get all your photos without anyone in them! Haha every time I go it’s PACKED! My favorite is the rose, lemon layered cake 😍
