Tea & Cake London is a comprehensive guide to the best
places to enjoy tea and cake across London. Charming, knowledgeable
and often surprising, this lovely book seeks out more than 70
cafés, bakeries and tearooms worth discovering, from iconic
establishments to modern classics and undiscovered gems.
Celebrating the history and ritual of taking tea, while embracing
London's currently thriving independent café scene, it brings
together an eclectic collection of venues, all beautifully
illustrated with evocative photography. Whether you're looking for
a traditional afternoon tea, a casual café in which to gossip over
a brew, a bakery selling elite buttery treats, innocent vegan
delights or an oddball tearoom with a twist, Tea & Cake
London has the answer.
The book has 6 chapters, each focusing on a different face of
London's tea and cake scene, from formal afternoon teas,
patisseries and bakeries, right down to market stalls selling cake.
Each entry highlights a special destination, and tempts you to
indulge in a much-loved and very British pastime. And why resist?
After all, there's fewer pleasures as simple or appealing as
settling somewhere cosy, tucking into a slice of something nice,
and sipping on a well-brewed cup of tea.
