I have been to Harrods hundreds of times but never before had I visited Urban Retreat Café.
The Urban Retreat is located on the fifth floor of Harrods and you all know that’s my favourite floor! Usually, after shopping for shoes, I hit the champagne bar… If you’re after something a little different from that then this is the place. Urban Retreat is Harrods in house Spa, offering a wide range of services and a gorgeous place to eat.
“Situated on the 5th floor of the world’s most famous store, Harrods, Urban Retreat is a beauty haven like no other. Our team of industry experts offer a full range of luxury services and the salon boasts a Hair Salon, a Make-Up Salon, a Nail Loft, 21 Beauty Treatment Rooms, The Moroccan Spa and The Urban Retreat Café.”
It’s Harrods, so it is pricey, but what else would you expect? The menu is gorgeous, everything on there is a British classic and obviously the finest home grown ingredients. Myself and my friend went for a cream tea but now I know it’s there and how lovely it is, I will certainly be visiting again.
The poached egg and avocado on Sourdough toast looks so delicious! That is what I will be ordering, for sure!
The cream tea is a great option if you don’t fancy savoury – which we didn’t at the time. It costs £13.50 pp and for that you get a large pot of your chosen tea, with two freshly baked scones (still hot from the oven) with clotted cream and strawberry jam. You can also upgrade your cream tea to include champagne, this is £20.
This café would be ideal after pampering yourself at the spa and that is definitely on my list of things to-do… Who is joining me?
We were sat overlooking the famous Egyptian escalators with a gorgeous ceiling above us. It really is lovely and set in the prefect location.

Harrods is an amazing place to visit and if you haven’t yet had a chance to visit, then you must do so. I also recommend getting their rewards card because not only do you get points when you shop, you also get 10% off weekends, which generally in Harrods… 10% off makes a massive difference!
