Élan opens second London cafe in Knightsbridge
With far more seating than its first branch over in Park Lane – 20 tables to be exact – Élan Cafe continues to build on its philosophy of serving “healthy, natural food”.
But the cafe isn’t just a place to enjoy its “unfaltering commitment to using the finest ingredients to serve the very best coffee, in unforgettable style”.
Élan Cafe is also renowned for its use of a minimum-waste system, where coffee by-products are recycled and made in-store into “an earth-friendly range of scrubs and masks for face, body and hair” said to contain no preservatives or harmful chemicals.
Having been in partnership since 2001 with London’s award-winning Union coffee roasters – the first roasters in the country to source coffee beans directly from the farmers – Élan Cafe boasts a wide selection of coffee types and beverages.
From the usual type made from 100% Arabica beans that include a variety of single origin coffees brewed to order and caffeine-free alternatives, to Cold Coffees that includes the Nitro cold brew – a single origin coffee infused with pure nitrogen to create a creamy texture; as well as smoothies, frappes and iced teas.
An extensive range of beautifully presented breakfasts (hot and cold), soups, hot plates, and desserts are also offered such as:
- Acai bowl with banana, strawberries, blueberries,coconut and granola.
- Breakfast plate with poached egg, chopped salad, hummus, za’atar yoghurt, ful mudammas and sumac.
- Pulled lamb shoulder with spelt tabbouleh, hummus, flatbread and pomegranate molasses.
- Baked brioche pain perdue with strawberry and cinnamon.
In all, they offer 24 food menu items, 18 types of beverages, and an exciting selection of beauty products.
