PINK VELVET LATTES AT PALM VAULTS


Down Mare Street in Hackney lies a charming, independent and unique cafe with hues of pink and green, marbled worktops and stunning brick walls...not to mention the various assortment of tumbling plants beautifully cascading above your head. As you enter the cafe called Palm Vaults, you are greeted with a a marvellous sign created by Alex May Hughes, a magical indoor garden, comfy lounge chairs and of course, as always, mouthwatering cakes that sit delicately on top of vintage style china cake stands. I was very excited about trying the velvet or matcha lattes, I ended up going for the pink velvet latte and it went down a treat.




As a lover of  cacti, succulents and all plants in general I was in awe of the well kept plants that surrounded us and reminded me that I really needed to water my own cacti when I got home! The music that played gave a chilled and relaxing vibe and it wasn't long before we ordered our coffee and cake.


As the cake was brought to us I was delighted with the generous portion size as anyone who knows me knows I do love my cake! A delicate light sponge filled in the middle with icing and raspberry jam and topped with raspberry and pistachio nuts. I enjoyed the cake with a pink, frothy, velvet latte that was made with beetroot and tasted like red velvet cake as I enjoyed looking at the hanging plants and having a nice chat with my mum and aunt. I would also like to add that they even had pretty toilets! With shiny pink tiles and funky palm leaf wallpaper. What's also great about Palm Vaults is that they have vegan options and non dairy milks.


As a sucker for design I loved the whole interior and exterior as much as I loved the beautiful Palm Vaults paper coffee cups that were pastel pink and adorned with palm leaves and the coffee shop name. I would order a coffee just for the pretty paper cup that came with it!


I hope you enjoyed reading about the wonderful Palm Vaults cafe and let me know if you visit and try the velvet latte. Next time I go I will definitely try their halloumi toastie or wrap! 

Have you visited Palm Vaults? Do you love plants as much as I do? I'd love to know.
