Afternoon Tea…

What’s one of the best things about living in London? Why, Afternoon Tea of course! I love Afternoon Tea, it’s always such a treat.

Yesterday I was treated to a fabulous afternoon tea from my friend. London is full of great and unusual places to have Tea. One such place is the Prêt-à-Portea at the Berkeley for Fashionistas. Well, I’m not much of a fashionista, but I do enjoy fashion and I love cake!

Each little cake and biscuit is based on one of this season’s key pieces. And the cakes and biscuits are changed in line with the fashion seasons, so here we have the A/W 2012 collection served on Paul Smith fine bone china…

This season’s Burberry Trench Coat…

And if you still have room in your tummy, you get these cute little takeaway handbags to take home…

If you do find yourself in London and at a loss of things to do, I would definitely recommend coming here with some of your girlfriends (but do remember to book in advance). It’s a great way to while away an afternoon nattering away. A plus side for the Berkeley is that for your set price, your tea and cake are unlimited. The plates are refilled as many times as you can manage! (Which is not always the case in other establishments.)

    Sigh. I love l.o.v.e. LOVE afternoon tea! It’s one of my favourite ways to spend an afternoon with friends. Even my DH will accompany me and drink a pot of tea (he likes the cakes). I’ve not been to London (yet), but it’s on my bucket list, and when I get there I intend to afternoon tea myself silly.
