Things 2 do in London: Afternoon Tea at Harvey Nichols

After a long day spent shopping in London, there is nothing better than a hearty English Afternoon Tea for a quick energy boost! and my favorite Afternoon Tea is the one served at Harvey Nichs 5th floor café.

Their Afternoon Tea is served from 3 – 6 P.M.  We choose the Fifth Floor afternoon tea stand which is this modern stand with a selection of sandwiches, pastries, fruit scones, jam, and clotted cream with a pot of tea of your selection. Ours is always Earl Grey’s!

The stand costs only £13.95 and is enough for 3-4 girls (or one man and his wife) … the goodies are freshly baked and delicious… and the atmosphere is casual and relaxed! You can take your time buttering your scone and sipping your tea and chatting about your day… fighting about where to go next and who will go with whome and who should carry all your shopping bags 😉

There is more than enough to go around for seconds… you like pastries? it’s there… brownies? Macaroons? in the mood for something sweet or savory? just pick it up from the stand and have a bite…

We always ask for our sandwiches to be vegetarian and egg free -Butootee is allergic to eggs- the vegetarian options include Hummus and Black olives on brown toast and Cream Cheese and Cucumbers on brown toast…

I recommend visiting it after making the trip to the V&A… followed by a bit of shopping and a stroll in the park… shopping in the food hall is not to be missed too… i get a lot of my cooking ingredients from the food halls dotted around London ❤
