This morning I dragged Himself out of bed bright and early and we headed down the road to Ebury Street where The Peggy Porschen Parlour resides
This establishment has been very, VERY well documented over the years due to its wonderful cakes and particularly instagrammable, pastel pink facade
However, their past has nothing on the last few weeks. Ever since they installed their offering for “Belgravia In Bloom” they have been inundated with lovers of all things pretty and pink!
With sweet signs and overflowing baskets and pots of beautiful flowers, whats not to love?!
We popped inside, ordered, paid and grabbed one of the best seats in the house…well, outside the house actually! But not before we’d had a good look around at what else the Parlour had to offer
A baking book, mini meringue bites that looked almost too delicious to eat (I said almost!), topped with the sweetest little pink bows
And if a bit of bark is more your speed, they’ve got you covered with a whole shelf filled with the stuff!
There’s also a few party essentials dotted around the place, but if you’re looking for moulds, stencils, bakeware etc… I suggest you stick with buying them online, direct from Peggy, perhaps I was looking in the wrong place but I didn’t see anything of that ilk ready for sale within the parlour
I bought these sunnies recently and I’m absolutely obsessed with them, I can’t wait to try them out against some stronger rays when we head off on our hollybops!
Anyway, I digress! We had barely sat down long enough to take in our surroundings when our treats were delivered to the table
The Banoffee cupcake and a pink lemonade for Himself
and a soy latte with the Strawberry and Champagne cupcake for me
In. My. Element!!
Now for the photo bloggers normally don’t let you see – I massacred that cupcake – and I regret nothing! It was completely delicious and got me excited to have a go at making my own version (watch this space!)
In many ways, The Peggy Porschen Parlour reminded me of the bakery we visited in New York when we were on our Honeymoon, albeit a much prettier version!
Just as we were stretching out lazily, we realised quite the crowd was forming and so, once the dregs of coffee and lemonade were drunk and the final crumbs were picked up, we gave up our prime real estate for some other devotees of baked goods and pink to enjoy
Opening hours are 9am – 7pm seven days a week but take my advice, if you are looking for a chill experience, go first thing or perhaps give late afternoon a go instead.
Otherwise, be prepared to be involved in MANY strangers photographs – or sit inside – but really, where’s the fun in that? London’s sunshine is practically begging to be basked in – it’d be rude not to!
Go and enjoy, you’ll love it!
