Fait Maison is the new instagram cafe in London with delicious cakes and luxurious hot chocolates.
Instagram worthy cafes are springing up all over London, with faux flowers and cute cakes luring bloggers and influencers to their doors with the promise of cute girly photos for the ‘gram. I have to admit that I am one of those aforementioned bloggers so when I walked past Fait Maison in Kensington, I had to visit and see what the fuss was about. Based right next to Gloucester Road tube station, Fait Maison is in a great location but it has yet been undiscovered by the blogger crowd.
We arrived on a Saturday morning, ready to have some brunch and enjoy the fairytale like set up. The first things we ordered were hot chocolates. They arrived in the traditional fluted glasses, coated in nutella chocolate with the most delicious hot chocolate I have ever had. The drink was creamy and the perfect amount of sweetness and we sipped through them so quickly.
For my brunch, I ordered the avocado on sourdough toast with poached eggs. When both our breakfasts arrived, they literally looked like works of art. The food was beautifully presented and the scattering of salads and nuts meant that this was the perfect healthy antidote to the rich naughty hot chocolate.
The food was yummy but I found the toast a bit too hard and cold by the time it arrived. I actually had a lot of issues with the service at Fait Maison, the waiters were not communicating and I had to ask several times for various things so be warned. Visit Fait Maison with plenty of time on your hands as it will never be a fast service. For dessert I had the chocolate brownie which was a rich dense chocolate mousse on top of a crumbly biscuit base. The actual food was much better than the dessert in this case but we had to try it as they all looked so good.
