OMG Fashionistas contain yourself. The Prada Caffè has opened in London and if the food and drinks are as delectable as the decor, you are certainly in for a treat. When I saw the photographs of the pale green ( I would say pistachio) decor, and the black-and-white chequered flooring, I literally wanted to switch off my computer and arrange a must-attend PeopleWorld meeting at Harrods at the Prada Caffè immediately.
According to Harrods’ website, it was “inspired by Prada’s most famous stores-including its first-ever boutique, opened at Galleria Vittorio Emanuele 11 in 1913-Prada Caffè promises a taste of Milan in Knightsbridge.”
Now as for the all-important question, what’s on the menu at the Prada Caffè? Let me share a little snapshot of it with you.
For breakfast (9am-11.30am), what intrigues me from what is offered is Fagottini, which is described as oven-baked laminated dough. For £9, you can choose from the following flavours, Dark Chocolate, Pistachio Cream and Raspberry Jam.
If you prefer something more substantial, you could opt for Eggs Florentine, which consists of Poached Cacklebean eggs, toasted brioche, hollandaise and Parmesan. There is, of course, the ubiquitous Avocado Toast and Yoghurt and Granola. If you think this all sounds like a regular cafe and not like a Prada one, think again. In the Adds section, as well as crispy bacon and smoked salmon, there is Oscietra caviar, which is priced at £22.
If you are contemplating going there for afternoon tea, there is plenty to tempt you. I am intrigued by the ‘Gianduja cake,’ it is described as a ‘cocoa sponge cake and hazelnut crunchy with a creamy dark-chocolate and vanilla Bavarian cream,’ and is priced at £15.
For those of you who don’t like chocolate, how about the ‘lemon cake,’ which consists of lemon cream, sponge cake, Sicilian jelly and vanilla Bavarian cream, this also is priced at £15.
At lunchtime, which is served from midday to 9pm ( a very late lunch!), you can choose from burrata and zucchini, salmon, artichokes and grapefruit, salmon and crab and dill for your starters. For your main course, there is a saffron risotto, ricotta and spinach cannelloni, a vegetarian spaghetti, a fish of the day, and an oven roasted beef fillet.
Prices for main courses range from £29 to £45. If you fancy having a cocktail with your lunch, you can opt for everything from an Aperol Spritz for £17 to an Espresso Martini for £18. There are also ‘signature cocktails,’ such as ‘Bitter in Love’, (£19), which is Mancino Sakura vermouth, Luxardo Bitter, grapefruit soda, prosecco and ‘Tuscan Blossom (also £19), which is Sabatini gin, Fiorente elderflower, peach liqueur, lime and rosemary oleo, soda and prosecco.
For those of you who fancy a trip to London to check out the Prada Caffè, there is booking available for May. (at the time of writing this article), but demand is building fast. For those of you who just want to check it out rather than sit down for a meal, you could always treat yourself to a take away cake instead.
If you are lucky enough to go there, will you also be lucky enough to spot A-listers such as Zendaya on your visit?
