I can’t be the only one who plans my days around food, can I? I put this little guide together of London’s most famous colorful streets and my favorite bakeries and cafes to pop in when I’m in the neighborhood. Because you really need a reward for all that walking and photographing, right? If you have a favorite cafe, please pop it in the comments!
PORTOBELLO ROAD, NOTTING HILL
The famous Portobello Road, basically every color-lovers dream!
EAT: Farm Girl, Fabrique, The Dayrooms Cafe, Gails
HILLGATE PLACE, NOTTING HILL
The lesser known colorful houses on Hillgate and surrounding streets are a nice break from the crowds of Portobello Road, and home of my favorite brunch spot.
EAT: Eggbreak, Patty & Bun, Farina Pizza
BYWATER STREET, CHELSEA
If you’ve been on instagram, you’ve probably seen this street! That bright pink house makes me smile every time I see it.
EAT: Amorino, Bread Ahead, Granger & Co.
CHALCOT CRESCENT, PRIMROSE HILL
Another insta-famous curved street with pastel houses, featured in the cute movie, Paddington. Nearby Chalcot Square is equally colorful with a lovely little green space my kids adore.
EAT: Cowshed, Morgan & Melrose, Primrose Cupcakes
