Best places for Tea in London 2019

Hello Brew-TEA-ful!

Traditional warm scone? A fresh pot of tea? Indulge in Britain’s famous afternoon tea ritual! I am always on the hunt for the perfect afternoon tea or a warm snug corner with a hot coffee and a delicious treat in hand. So this has led me on the search far and wide around London town, which has been very successful thus far.

These cafes are a few hot spots I have managed to discover along the way and would love YOU to spoil yourself, English style!


Famous for their cinnamon buns, this place is full of the best sweet treats, beautiful homemade loaves of bread, wonderful coffee & tea and a ‘to-die-for’ selection of mouth watering baguettes. Cakes and pastries are around £2.00-£4.00. Baguettes are around £6.00.

The Love Walk Café – Fulham

Incredibly homey feel, fresh decadent cakes and pastries made each day, a full menu of incredible breakfast meals, burgers, jacket potatoes, salads, wraps, refreshing smoothies and juices and vegan options available! Prices start from £2.00!

Candella Tea Room – Kensington 

A beautifully traditional, high class tea room, a little more pricey but the delicacies, teas and service are well worth it! This place has a never ending list of teas and a full breakfast and lunch menu. The high tea for two is £15.00, but the menu starts at around £4.00.

The Muffin Man – High Street Kensington

Delicious, very affordable, gorgeous vintage vibe and an endless choice of teas, fresh cakes, sandwiches and salads! Starting from just £1.50. (Cash only though).

Bea’s Of Bloomsbury –  Marylebone

Gorgeous little tea room just off Marylebone Street, it has a menu fit for any dietary requirements, picturesque cakes and teas to match. The menu itself is decently priced (starting at £4.00), the high tea menu is a little more pricey (£30.00, but worth it for the traditional experience!).
