We Break for Tea

The quiches, and outstanding soups, and divine sweets and pastries, and, of course, teas are all exquisite… but what really warms our hearts’ cockles is afternoon tea at the London Tea Room. The rules are a bit strict (reservation by 4 pm the day prior, available from 1-3 pm Tu-F and 2-4 pm Sa-Su), but it’s worth it: scones, jam, Devonshire cream, sandwiches, cakes and a pot of tea. Proper.

8 am-3 pm M-F, 9 am-6 pm Sa, 10 am-5 pm Su, 1520 Washington Ave., www.londontearoom.com, 314.241.6556
