Enchanting Atmosphere at Elan Café Brompton Road

Elan Café has been recently added to my list of cafés to visit, mainly because of the beautiful décor that I’ve seen on Instagram. From the moment I stepped inside Elan Café, I was transported to a fairy-tale world of pastel colours, charming décor, and beautiful floral arrangements. The ambiance alone is worth the visit! Everywhere I turned, there was a perfect backdrop for an Instagram-worthy shot. The cafe’s attention to detail in creating a captivating atmosphere truly sets it apart. We were wowed by the cafe’s enchanting ambiance, creating the perfect setting for a romantic celebration.

There was a pretty long queue so I’d recommend booking a table in advance or going there early to nab a table!

Floral Paradise

The floral installations at Elan Café Brompton Road are simply breath-taking. Every corner of the café is adorned with cascades of colourful flowers, creating an ethereal ambiance that is impossible to resist. It’s the perfect place to relax, unwind, and escape the hustle of the city while surrounded by natural beauty.

My favourite area of the café had to be the massive flower wall – it looked so gorgeous! If you want to get a table next to this flower wall, be prepared to queue up for at least an hour though! The aesthetics in this café was just on-point, and the cherry blossom tree definitely added a sweet and romantic element to it.

Elan Café Brompton Road Food & Menu

Prepare to indulge your taste buds in a culinary adventure like no other. Elan Cafe’s menu boasts an impressive selection of expertly crafted coffees, teas, and hot chocolates. The selection of cakes and pastries left me spoiled for choice.

At Elan Café Brompton Road, the food was actually pretty good, and there was a lot to choose from; I ordered flatbread with chicken breast, poached egg and grilled peppers with a tomato base and chilli oil, and my boyfriend ordered the same but with home cured beetroot salmon and dill cream cheese. We then ordered waffles with spiced apple compote, but they ran out of apple so we had berries on top instead. The flavours worked so well and it was really tasty!

The coffee was so-so though – we ordered iced latte, but then again they have a range of drinks to choose from, so their other flavoured coffees and smoothies may be better. Overall, the combination of exquisite taste and artistic presentation made the dining experience unforgettable.
