Elliot’s Cafe – Borough Market – London

Being based in the inspiring environment that is Borough Market, their menu is created using the diverse ingredients available and in season. They have a simple but mindful approach to cooking that allows the ingredients to dictate the menu but to be prepared in such a way as to show them at their absolute best. They cook their food over a wood fired grill, respecting the simplicity of this method encourages us to focus on the ingredient being cooked with it and the flavours that can develop as a result.

Umbrella visual feature

I went wandering down a few side streets at Borough market and discovered a new square which has been created from the backyard of a few stores. It’s a bi of a hidden gem and can be found wandering down the road past Neil’s Yard Deli, it’s on the right hand side opposite Paul Smith accessories store, it has a few nice stores and a great coffee shop, and this great visual feature.

Borough Market London

As i mentioned in Wednesdays blog post Lynda and I were out and about hunting for ideas and had to pop along to Borough Market, which i have only just found out is London’s most visited tourist attraction. We have been coming here for years and love the ambiance and the amazing food stalls and shops. Over the last few years Borough Market has been undergoing a complete refurbishment and this is the  newest part to be unveiled, Its the new main entrance built under the new railway bridge, ultra modern but with hints of the past, i love the black and white photos printed onto the glass entrance.

Paul Smith Borough Market

Borough Market is a gastronomic delight, but there are other delights to be found in and around this amazing place.

One such store is Paul Smith, situated just off the main market on Park St.

This tiny store is jam-packed with goodies.

Even though they only have a tiny window, they manage to create some great displays.

This latest display is very simple and clever.

It has obviously been put together by an expert dresser.

The interior has a vintage theme with lots of antique furniture being used to house products.

I love the array of light bulbs in the ceiling.
