Tiny tea hideaway

Step down into this small café for tea, coffee and cake and the light lunch menu. The bright small front room with 3 or 4 tables leads to a darker rear room near the serving counter where space is at an even higher premium. Delicious cakes (on show in back room) taste as if Granny has just made... read more

Away from the main tourist drag in Greenwich, Royal Teas is everything you would expect from a local independent cafe - really good food, friendly service, notice boards full of local information and cool art on the walls. The mostly veggie menu (salmon is a vegetable, right?) is nothing fancy, but the food is really tasty - I particularly recommend... More

In a Greenwich residential area, this tearoom serves lovely selection of teas & British tea time delicacies. What we enjoyed was Afternoon tea set & salmon' egg toast set. And everything was delicious & decent. Even we were first time visitor, we saw this place is loved by local as seats never got empty & people seemed very much regular.... More

Hidden little gem in the heart of Greenwich, this is a very cosy place and if you are up for cream tea, it's definitely the place to go. Fresh salmon and cucumber sandwiches, a pot of tea (your choice), a great warm scone with jam and clotted cream and a huge slice of homemade cake (your choice again), for less... More

Beautiful and cosy tiny café with good choice of teas and cakes. Prices are unbelievably low considering the area. Lovely place to seat while visiting Greenwich park.

This tiny coffee shop in Greenwich is a gem, it has a great menu, with a really good choice for breakfasts and lunches, exceptional value for money and really good portion sizes. You can choose your coffee beans for a pot of coffee and the staff are really friendly. We live close by and frequent this coffee shop almost every... More

I visited with my Mum October 2015. Lovely place, quaint inside with beautiful artwork on the walls (subjective i know, but who doesn't love a Bee painting) Lovely food, generous portions, prompt service from friendly staff (despite a few of the reviews on here I found both waitresses pleasant and polite) amazing green tea and the cakes looked delicious so...

Food is excellent and really cheap considering the location and compared to any other site! The only disappointing factor is that the waiters don't even consider you are there! Not even "Hello" when taking the order after we called him twice !!! Luckily the kitchen is fast and we had to wait 10 minutes for the meal. Will definitely come... More

Nice and lovely place in Greenwich with really good food. But I have to admit that the staff is really rude and impolite. And that is a real shame!

This quirky little tea room is clearly the place to be in Greenwich on a Sunday morning around brunch. The place was practically full, but we managed to find a corner table for two which was charming. The decor was boho/scruffy with exposed plaster and brickwork in places. The patrons were metropolitan. And now to the food - although the... More

Staying in Greenwich

Neighborhood Profile
Greenwich
Greenwich Mean Time starts here, so to speak, as the very concept of global time was established at Royal Observatory, just one of several buildings of architectural interest in Greenwich. Indeed, the whole of Greenwich's historic town center, its Royal Park and a number of related buildings (and one world famous ship, the Cutty Sark) make up the UNESCO World Heritage site known as Maritime Greenwich. Today a laser beam is shot out across the night sky from the Observatory to mark the location of the Prime Meridian. Other bold (some say brash) 21st century additions to the area include landmarks such as The O2 entertainment complex (previously known as the Millennium Dome) and the Air Line cable cars, which offer scenic transport across the Thames between North Greenwich and the Royal Docks.
