We used to live across the street from the London Tea Room and we were anxious to revisit while on a recent trip back to St. Louis. We walked in to find that now they have table service, so no more standing in line, but everything else is still the same...meaning a great selection of teas, pastries, quiche, sandwiches, salads, etc., as well as a full espresso service.
We came for breakfast, so our order included the sausage breakfast sandwich, a slice of quiche, a slice of lemon/blueberry cake, a slice of pumpkin gooey butter cake and a pot of assam tea. Okay...so maybe it was brunch! It would be hard to pick our favorite of the four food items...they were all simply "yum"!!!!
You can stop in for a cup of tea or a full blown English afternoon tea event....or anything in between. This little restaurant was started by two London-ishers so I'm assuming it's pretty authentic. Authentic or not, this is one of our favorite morning places to sip great tea, watch people on Washington Avenue and simply enjoy.
