Iconic fashion house Prada has opened a Prada Caffè at Harrods – and it’s just as beautiful as you’d expect.
The interiors come decked out in the brand’s signature mint green, from the walls and ceilings to the velvet sofas and armchairs.
Giving Londoners a taste of life in Milan, the black and white chequered floors are a perfect reproduction of the first Prada boutique on Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II, which opened in Italy in 1913.
The floral patterns on the walls, as seen in the dining area, echo the design of some of Prada’s iconic stores around the world.
Guests visiting Prada Caffè will eat from tableware handpicked by Prada in a pale blue Japanese porcelain. This includes plates, trays, teapots and coffee cups with lids.
Blown-glass crystal glassware will come emblazoned with Prada’s signature triangle motif.
When it comes the menu, food kicks off at breakfast from 9am all the way through to dinner and evening cocktails.
The pastry menu is extensive, ranging from pralines to pistachio cake and Italian braided rolls with fillings like brie and artichokes and bresaola and orange.
An all-day menu is served from midday until 9pm. Highlights include the crab and dill brioche bun (£29.50), saffron and parmesan risotto (£38) and fish of the day served with sun-dried tomatoes, capers and oregano (£34).
Traditional Italian cocktails such as negronis, aperol spritz and spritz camparis will be served, starting from £17.
There will also be a takeaway patisserie counter and outdoor ice cream stall in the warmer months.
Prada Caffè at Harrods, 87-135 Brompton Road, London, runs until January 7, 2024. Opening hours are 9am-9pm Monday to Saturday and 12pm-6pm on Sundays.
