Selfridges Oxford street

Aubaine- A piece of France in London

What would you do if I told you? Inside one of the most gorgeous department stores in London, Selfridges, on the second floor conveniently near the shoe department which is every girl's best friend. There is a cute little restaurant tucked in the corner which will transport you straight to France? Hard to believe right? But I kid you not. Aubaine restaurant is all kinds of pretty.

When I think about Aubaine restaurant I think Wisteria ceiling. The delightful detail is attention-grabbing and makes a beautiful backdrop when dining. This restaurant is the perfect place for a sweet treat and tea. Or a healthy hearty salad which is what I did with a friend.

We went to the restaurant for a mid-day lunch. Even though it usually gets packed we were lucky that it wasn't and were seated on a window table. I did originally want seats under the westria ceiling but unfortunately, no one was permitted to sit there, which was upsetting at first. But I saw the silver lining in the situation when I realized  I can take photos of that area of the restaurant in peace without anyone in the photo.

Both my friend and I wanted something light and healthy to eat. She ordered the Caesar salad
Baby gem lettuce, Parmesan, brioche & rosemary croutons, anchovy Caesar dressing, with corn feed chicken breast. The chicken they serve is halal. And I ordered a Superfood salad
Quinoa, sweet potato, tender stem broccoli, pomegranate, baby kale, French dressing, with halloumi cheese.
We both ordered a side of sweet potatoes fries as that always makes a meal complete. As for drinks I choose lemonade and elderflower, and my friend went with a juice. 

Even though the restaurant is filled with faux flowers by the windows and the on the ceiling. It was nice to see there was a console table decorate with potted plants. I personally thought that will look amazing in a home.

My overall thoughts on the restaurant is a nice cute place to visit to catch up with some girlfriends or a quick lunch if you are shopping. The next time I do visit it I would love to try their dessert.
