Prada's New Pop-Up Café: A Delicious Departure from Fashion
| LAST UPDATE 04/02/2023
The hottest thing from the Italian fashion house is not a purse or a pair of shoes - it’s coffee and pastries! That’s right: the latest from Prada is a pop-up café called the Prada Caffé, and it's yet another reason to stay on-trend with all things Prada.
The new café’s design takes inspiration from the very first Prada boutique that was opened in Milan’s Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II arcade in 1913. A brilliant mint green covers the entire interior of the space and is paired with a black-and-white checkered floor. It’s simple and elegant. The café brings the designer’s signature style to life. The tables are made of black marble and paired with velvety green chairs. The design team at Prada hand-selected the tableware, of course. The famous floral motif of the fashion brand is also on display on the walls. But more importantly, what’s on the menu?
If you are starting your day out, the breakfast menu boasts perfectly poached eggs and puff pastries, all of which are accompanied by the best Italian coffee. There are traditional Italian treats, too, like the faggotini, which is a doughy sweet filled with dark chocolate, pistachio cream, and raspberry jam. There are also more traditional options like yogurt and granola available. Lunch is just as scrumptious. The menu for lunch ranges from burrata and zucchini to spinach and ricotta cannelloni with black truffle. There are also a variety of signature cocktails available that have fun names, like the Italian Fizz or the Bitter in Love. For those in a rush, there are quick bites also available for purchase.
The Prada Caffé opened its doors on March 31st and will remain open until January 7th, 2024. The pop-up is located in the iconic Harrod’s department store in London. Reservations can be made through the Harrods website. Run, don’t walk, to this one-of-a-kind experience!
