We told you about Pinky Bloom and Le Jardin de Mademoiselle, two locations with a super girly and pink décor dedicated to indulging food. But the trailblazer, El&n Café, has decided to open this September 14, 2021 in Paris, in the new shoe corner of Galeries Lafayette Haussmann, a fantastic area. We then decided to go to the 4th floor of the Galeries to discover the UK version of the girly coffee shop!
There is no doubt about it, the coffee shop is very well located, big, bright, with views on the rooftops! The décor is fantastic with flowers and copper accessories (you can shop).
Elan Café Paris menu is long, covers four pages with pictures of the dozens of “Insta-worthy” drinks… Lattes with topping, cocktails, smoothies based on seasonal fruits, everything you can take pictures of (and enjoy?).
We hesitate for a while before testing the red velvet cake latte based on beetroot syrup and melted chocolate chips for €9.5, and the rose Spanish, a latte based on rose water condensed milk for €9.5… The verdict is simple: these drinks are sweet, very sweet, we cannot even finish our glass. It will definitely please young girls, as for us, we go for a fruit juice. We later found out they make Turkish coffee, a latte with maple syrup, and Nutella hot cocoa, and hot cocoa with Turkish delights, we are curious and we will be back to try them!
To pair these drinks, brunch-inspired dishes, very tasty, so much you do not know where to start. Benedict-style eggs, of course, some mac&cheese, pancakes, Nutella French toasts, brownie, pastries and slices of cakes by the cut. We went for the French toast, the strawberry tartlet and the cheesecake. The cheesecake is very creamy and flavorful, the strawberry tartlet is eaten in no time, because of its smooth cream, and this French toast… We have not had one this good and this indulgent in a long time, and only for €13. This is a very delightful surprise for this place providing very tasty products in a soft pink coffee shop.
Here is a location to keep in mind when you feel blue!
