Yesterday, I went with some friends for lunch (and tea!) at The London Tea Room in St. Louis’ Tower Grove South neighborhood.
I love the building in which the tea room is located, and the decor is perfect! (I also loved the music they were playing…very Rat Pack.)
I even got to peek in the Hyde Park Room, which is reserved for group gatherings…it’s very pretty!
We tried three varieties of tea: Lavender Earl Grey, Naughty Vicar (love the name!), and Duke and Duchess (which was created for the wedding of William and Kate). They were all delicious, and they looked so pretty on the table!
The food looked so wonderful in the cases, it was hard to choose. I finally settled on the Cornish pasty (delicious!), and the Queen Victoria cake (also delicious!). The staff was very friendly and helpful, and took time to explain what the different treats were.
Now that I’ve been there and know what it’s like, I’m looking forward to going back someday for a full afternoon tea!
