Even the French do Tea!

Five Afternoon Teas in a week, Mum was going to call it quits when we were invited to join some Frenchies at 50 Cheyne!

Now who knew the French took tea? Hello Yuuna – again!

Along came Hattie & Mum.

Afternoon Tea was served in the lovely lounge upstairs …

Mum does it the Cornish way! 🙂

We had so much fun – George even ran downstairs to say hello to everyone – not a good idea! But after all that excitement, the little pups were all tired.

But I have not given up on that last scone on the plate!

All good things must come to an end – and today is indeed the last day of Afternoon Tea Week.

I know Afternoon Tea is one of our favourite things to do but I think we’ve had enough scones and tea to last for the rest of the year.

As we were leaving, we couldn’t resist taking a photo at their lovely bar …

And if anyone should say something, we asked for permission to have the dogs seated on the bar stools. 😉

May’s comment: In support of Afternoon Tea Week, our goal was to find new places we haven’t been to for Afternoon Tea. Even though we have been to three of the six places previously, we did not know they served Afternoon Tea. These were the six we managed for the week.

Monday – The Rubens at the Palace Hotel is one of the Red Carnation Hotels and dog-friendly. We have frequented The Milestone, Egerton House Hotel and The Montague but haven’t tried The Rubens till this Afternoon Tea Week.

Aptly named The Royal Afternoon Tea.

Tuesday – Can’t remember why did we skip this day?

Wednesday – The Belmond Cadogan Hotel was such a treat. We were prepared to partake of Afternoon Tea in the bar area but were nicely surprised when we were ushered into the beautiful Lounge.

The presentation was exquisite and the Adam Handling Afternoon servings – delicious! Will go back any time – but it was a trial – so we may end up in the bar the next time.

Thursday – This was the day the kiddies left and so glad to have met Anne & Skylar at The Sloane Place Hotel for a cuppa. We’ve had breakfast there for a doggy birthday celebration and know them to be very dog friendly. Their afternoon tea is less formal. Basically order your tea and have the mandatory scones. So glad that you get to choose to have sandwiches or pastries.

Friday – Cinnamon Bazaar in Covent Garden was a lovely surprise. We were familiar with Cinnamon Kitchen and then to find out there’s an Indian inspired version of an Afternoon Tea.

They have a vegan version as well.

Saturday – Farmacy is a well know vegan destination in Notting Hill. They have been dog friendly from the start. What a lovely surprise that they do a vegan Afternoon Tea, actually a “High” Tea. LOL!

And the presentation was lovely.

open sandwich – cucumber on dill bread.

Sunday – 50 Cheyne – one of our local favourites, opened only this year and dog-friendly.

A lovely Provençal brasserie that has an upstairs lounge where Afternoon Tea is served.

Till next year!
