Bea's of Bloomsbury

$, Dessert, High Tea, Bloomsbury- Holborn, St Paul's- Bank, Farringdon

Bea's of Bloomsbury is a charming cafe perfect for a quick dessert on the go or for a reasonable (20 pound) sit down high tea that caters to those with a sweet tooth. Bea's offers a wide variety of tea as well as decadent treats including cakes, cupcakes, breads, and scones. Definitely try their famous Townies! A hybrid of a brownie and a tart.



Cocomaya

$$, Dessert, High Tea, Quick Eats, Chelsea, Mayfair- Marble Arch

Cocomaya has a modern Parisian feel with hundreds of homemade pastries and delicious coffees and teas. They also have amazing gluten-free options. This quaint cafe will not disappoint. Stop by for a few pastries on the go or try their take on London afternoon tea. The seating area is limited so off-peak times are recommended.



The Connaught

$$$$, High Tea, Mayfair

Came to the hotel for high tea, and it did not disappoint. The walls are covered with windows creating and open and bright atmosphere. It is more of a traditional high tea experience with a great selection of teas, and British inspired homemade finger sandwiches, desserts, and scones.



Fortnum & Mason

$$$, Dessert, High Tea, Mayfair

A unique and beautifully decorated store. Renowned for selling teas as well as fine foods, wines, and dish sets. Inside the massive store there are five restaurants including eateries, an ice cream parlor, and afternoon tea. Very touristy.


Laduree

$$, Dessert, High Tea, City of London- Bank, Covent Garden, Knightsbridge, Mayfair/Piccadilly

The best macarons in London! There are so many flavors to chose from, all with a unique and satisfying taste. My favorite is vanilla but try them all! Laduree also serves afternoon tea in its Covent Garden and Harrods (Knightsbridge) locations.


Mad Hatter's Afternoon Tea at Sanderson Hotel

$$$, High Tea, Oxford Circus

Alice in Wonderland themed high tea serving multi-colored finger sandwiches and other Wonderland inspired pastries and desserts.


Momo *

$$$, Middle Eastern, Moroccan, High Tea, Mayfair/Piccadilly

Best Moroccan food I've had! The decor is very detailed making you truly feel like you've been transported to Morocco. I recommend getting a few dishes to share. My favorites are the hummus and pita, chicken couscous, and chicken tagine. It also has great drinks and Moroccan tea, which can be enjoyed, in their tearoom.



Sketch

$$$$, Middle Eastern, Moroccan, High Tea, Mayfair

This restaurant is all about the experience. You are dining in what feels like a modern art gallery. Each room has a different theme and the interior is filled with unique and eccentric art pieces. The food is a combination of a French and Moroccan cuisine. The afternoon tea is also not your traditional British tea and more of a modern European tea. I recommend this place if you are looking for a different dinning or tea experience. Definitely check out the bathrooms though, they are egg-shaped standing pods on an elevated white platform.
