I love flowers, they make me so happy and there’s nothing better than being surrounded by beautiful flowers in a café while you’re having brunch! I came across the wisteria flowers on Instagram and fell in love with how beautiful they looked. I’m not even a fan of the colour purple, but these flowers are just stunning. So when I found the Aubaine restaurant with a wisteria-interior, I had to give it a visit. My boyfriend and I decided to go there for brunch to celebrate Valentine’s Day, and it did not disappoint!
It’s hidden away inside the Selfridges department store on Oxford Street on Level 2 in the Shoes department. It was easy to find as there are signs inside the store pointing you in the right direction.
I ordered the eggs benedict with salmon, which was really good apart from the toast was a quite hard to bite into. My boyfriend ordered the lobster benedict, which tasted pretty good too and had a hash brown-textured potato on the side. We then ordered a chocolate croissant to share, which was very sweet but tasty! We could not resist a croissant at a French restaurant.
We were lucky to be sat at the back near the window next to all the wisteria – definitely had the best spot! The natural lighting was great and the mirrors on the walls gave off the illusion that it was more spacious (because it actually was a small space). We were not the only ones taking advantage of this beautiful place, there were many others trying to get the right photo spot haha!
The staff were really friendly and helpful, making the whole experience so pleasant and welcoming!
Overall, it was worth visiting as not only was the place stunning and a perfect place for a romantic brunch, but the food was lovely too! If you’re a lover of wisteria, I’d definitely recommend visiting this restaurant. Also, make sure to book a table to ensure you get a good seat surrounded by the wisteria!
