Ebury St, Belgravia, London

Peggy Porschen Cakes


Let me tell you a little story.
My friend and I were on our way to Peggy Porschen bakery. We decided to take the London Underground tube because we hardly use it anymore after Uber came into existence, and so we thought why not? It will be fun - and it was! Anybody who saw my Instagram stories can attest to this.

We had to change trains in Liverpool street, and we got lost. But really, who knew that the Station was that big? Okay everyone knew. We are just a bit clumsy, so we asked the train station assistant where we should catch our next train. The assistant inquired; "What exactly are you doing in Sloan Square?"
We responded that we were going to a cute cafe called Peggy Porschen, of course! To which the assistant replied: "If I go to Peggy Porschen shop and the cakes are not good...?"
Now, here's the point of the story. I bet everyone who's heard of this cafe thinks the exact same thing: "Is the shop worth visiting?"
Well, read on to see!


We finally did get to Sloane square station, and the bakery is quite close walking distance to the station (I would say max 10 min walk if not less) but we ended up window shopping and taking outfit shots so it actually took longer to get there and back to the station. If you can stop by the shops in Sloane Square, I'd really recommend checking out the clothing stores as they're not to be missed. I have a huge love for the interior and exterior of buildings (you'll often find me taking shots of buildings with beautiful architecture or just the way a store has been laid out). If you're anything like me, you'd love the interior of these buildings just as much as the clothes they are selling.

The Peggy Porschen bakery is on a corner at the end of Ebury Street, and it's distinguishable with its famous arched rose bush above the store front and pink walls.  Trust me when I tell you that almost everyone that walked past the store stopped to take photos of it. I for one was most definitely one of those people. Snapped some photos before I entered the store, snapped some photos while I was ordering, snapped some photos when the cakes and beverages arrived, snapped some photos when we left the store. Hey, I even snapped some photos of people that wanted a snap of themselves next to the store front, ah what a fun day it was! Gosh, I have never been to a store that is just so photographable.

But the most important thing is: what did we order?

I ordered a raspberry rose cake slice, with the most delightful white detail and a raspberry on top. The cake looked beautiful as a whole, but unfortunately, I didn't take a picture of it so you can only see one slice (still tasted absolutely scrumptious though!) I also had a hot chocolate. Now, most people know that I am not the biggest chocolate fan. I will let you on into a secret, I think I only ordered this hot chocolate so I could see what design they put on it. I have seen some pretty nice creative patterns on Instagram. Mine was a simple heart which was thoughtful and very well suited my mood for that day; love and gratitude.
My friend that accompanied me ordered an iced latte and salted caramel chocolate cake slice, which I was lucky enough to taste (yum!) I love salted caramel and this cake did not disappoint.

The atmosphere of the cafe was absolutely charming. I wanted to get good seats as I heard that the cafe easily gets packed, so we planned to arrive there for 10:30 but ended up getting there by 11:30/12ish. We were hoping for it to be packed but were pleasantly surprised to see that it wasn't. That didn't last long though and it became full by the time we left.

My tips for your trip to Peggy Porschen Cakes is

1. Go earlier to get good seats.
2. If you want to get good pictures of the store front, try to avoid going during mid day. The mid-day sun is not forgiving and some of the pictures were hard to take because of it.
3. Read some of the books on the book shelf while you wait for your order, or enjoy the view if you choose to eat at the tables outside!
4. If you have allergies double check their ingredients, call before you go to the cafe.

If any of you have visited or plan to visit, do let me know your thoughts on the place.

  7. Those cakes and drinks look amazing! It was funny to hear your story of Liverpool Street because I know how big that station is, I used to use it everyday for over a year when I went to work :) (I lived in London for 2 years). I miss that station it was so nice and had lovely stores!

    1. The station is something else, really I have gone to the station before, but I didn't have to change lines. This time was different because we had to change train lines and we though it would easy like normal smaller stations. What we didn't expect was that that we had to go through the normal station to get to the other underground station which is in the complete other side! We felt like tourists in our own city lol. It was fun though.
