HTML is not allowed by default in flash messages and it's escaped. To change this you can use addSuccess() method instead of addSuccessMessage() to create message.

It can be done by creating plugin forMagento\Checkout\Controller\Cart\Add controller. I would avoid overwriting whole execute() method only for this small change and rather use the following:

public function afterExecute()
    $lastAddedMessage = $this->messageManager->getMessages()->getLastAddedMessage();
    if ($lastAddedMessage && $lastAddedMessage->getType() == MessageInterface::TYPE_SUCCESS) {
        $text = $lastAddedMessage->getText();

         * @var \Magento\Framework\Message\Collection
        $messages = $this->messageManager->getMessages();

        $cartUrl = $this->_objectManager->get('Magento\Checkout\Helper\Cart')->getCartUrl();
        $this->messageManager->addSuccess($text . '<a href="'.$cartUrl.'">View cart</a>');

    return $this->goBack();


<type name="Magento\Framework\View\Element\Message\MessageConfigurationsPool">
        <argument name="configurationsMap" xsi:type="array">
            <item name="addProductAddSuccessMessage" xsi:type="array">
                <item name="renderer" xsi:type="const">\Magento\Framework\View\Element\Message\Renderer\BlockRenderer::CODE</item>
                <item name="data" xsi:type="array">
                    <item name="template" xsi:type="string">[Namespace_ModuleName]::messages/addProductSuccessMessage.phtml</item>

Override Magento\Checkout\Controller\Cart\Add

Replace this



                        'product_name' => $product->getName(),
                        'referer' => $this->_objectManager->get('Magento\Checkout\Helper\Cart')->getCartUrl()


<?php /* @escapeVerified */ echo __('You added %1 to your ', $block->escapeHtml($block->getData('product_name'))) ?> <?php /* @escapeNotVerified */ echo __('<a href="%1">shopping cart</a>.', $block->escapeUrl($block->getData('referer')));

With the message using in the frontend, it is being processed via function escapeHtml(params $allowedTags = null) in class \Magento\Framework\Escaper, so it is being processed by htmlspecialchars() and we can't change it.
