In case you somehow missed our vlog and never ending spam of this ultra Insta-worthy cafe in London, we’ve also collated a little photo diary for your viewing pleasure. When a place is as aesthetic as Saint Aymes, who can really blame us for the photo spam!?
All photography credit goes towards our wonderful friend Monika (@elairecreates on Insta), who is one of those super inspirational women of many talents. Monika is a film director and producer, photographer and recently turned blogger who we were lucky to meet at a runway during London Fashion Week. We’re super excited to be organising monthly/fortnightly catch ups with her and exploring London’s most Instagrammable spots together, so be sure to keep your eyes peeled for more fun blogs and vlogs from all three of us! Bit of a change from the classic Adelaidian duo, hey?
We sat down to a delightful brunch together at Saint Aymes last Sunday, devouring macaroons, biscuits and mixed berry pancakes. Aside from their luxury chocolates, the cafe’s delicacy is their 24ct gold range, offering the likes of gold sprinkled lattes, hot chocolates and cappucinos. Naturally, we had to order a couple of these to fulfil our inner extra gal.
Saint Aymes offers a quaint and breathtakingly decorative space to catch up with friends over a coffee (a gold sprinkled one, at that). The quintessential shop front is enhanced with draping floral decor in a dreamy purple hue, with black and white checkered tiling gracing the entrance. Stepping inside, you are totally absorbed by the warmth of the atmosphere and the enchanting interior design. A floral theme remains as strong on the inside as it does on the outside, as does the picturesque pinky-purple colour palette.
If you want to make your next coffee catch-up a little something different, we highly recommend checking out this adorned cafe in Connaught Village. Find out more about Saint Aymes here.
