EL&N Cafe Hans Crescent: a dream come true!

A visit to EL&N cafe is always a good idea, and upon my rendezvous to the Hans Crescent branch, every pretty pink wish was granted. I've been lucky enough to visit three EL&N cafes so far, but this one has to be my favourite by a trillion years! With a love heart wall adorned with sassy quotes to a unicorn carousel, to dreamy fixtures and fittings and to-die-for dragonfruit salads, what's not to love? 

Read on for all the magic you can expect when entering EL&N Cafe in Hans Crescent..... 

Love Heart wall

We were lucky enough to get seated by the actual love heart wall, something I'd really wanted to do last time we'd been but unfortunately couldn't as it was closed. By some miracle on our second visit it was available and empty, so we got the whole of downstairs all to ourselves! I still can't get over how utterly fairytale this setting is, pure Arianna Grande meets 90s Love Heart fever. MADE FOR ME. I'd love a whole house paved with these bright pink love hearts, can you imagine? Fellow pink-a-holics rejoice! 

Seeing as it was April when we came here, my pink floral dress matched with all the cherry blossom surrounding the streets and trees, and even more so with this sweetheart deco! Major thanks as well to my lovely boyfriend, who, realising I'd forgotten my sparkly white heels for my shoot at EL&N made an hour round journey just to drop them off specially at my mum's the night before - a real life Cinderella moment! 


Dragonfruit salads & avocado flower power   
Lunch at EL&N is always next to none, and their dishes did not disappoint! Previously I've only ever really treated myself to their sweet treats, so this time we decided to go savoury. 

Their dragonfruit salad was the ultimate superwoman brunch for my mum, and the avocado dish I chose came with edible flowers adorned on the plate. A feast for fairies! Various fruit teas and coolers were selected seeing as it was too tropical outside to opt for our usual hot chocolates and pink lattes. 

Pink parlour decor 
Swirling marble tabletops are illuminated with stylish low-hanging bulbs, artfully placed to give off an amber glow. The walls are painted a promising pink, housing comfortable booths. Rose gold tables make for the perfect finishing touch. Flowers are displayed prettily with cutlery, and of course the best part of all happens to be the Love Hearts surrounding the downstair wall! 

Unicorn Carousel 
Aside from the gorgeous love heart walls, what really sets the bar high for this EL&N branch is the unicorn merry-go-round. Serious fairground fantasies unleashed! Facing the shopfront and streets, it's a gorgeous greeting once you step foot inside the Hans Crescent branch. 
The only downside to this fairground attraction was that it didn't waltz me off and spin me round, sadly of course it's fixed to the floor, but maybe a future EL&N cafe will even have a real moving carousel? Who knows! I fell head over heels with this cafe and it's definitely a firm favourite! I can't wait to visit again in the very near future ♥︎

Have you been to an EL&N cafe?
I'd love to know your favourite if so!
