Entirely in keeping with the old-world charm of Highgate Village, this tiny tearoom with its bunting, chandeliers made from vintage teacups, & fluffy cream cakes under glass cloches, is a slice
of perfectly pitched nostalgia. Owner Georgina Worthington & her tea ladies serve up ‘scrumptious treats’ with a smile, to everyone from yummy mummies to well-behaved teenage boys. Organic
flour, eggs & butter go into lemon drizzle cakes & Victoria sponges, & there’s wheat-free, almond-heavy chocolate orange cake too, as well as ice cream from Marine Ices. Coffee is Union
Fairtrade & tea is specially blended loose leaf: British Breakfast, London Afternoon Blend or even Miss Worthington’s Rose. You can buy tea to take home, along with teapots, cow creamers &
bejewelled pumps – for sale after numerous enquiries about the staff’s prettily dressed feet.
Entering this tea shop makes you feel like you have gone back in time (in a good way)! There is a lot of attention to detail in this cafe, from the proper china tea cups to the matching cow milk pot. The darjeeling tea and the summer tea were both great. Contrast to the tea, the hot chocolate was normal. Soy milk is available.All the cakes looked good and fresh. We sampled the carrot cake. It was delicious and the portion was of a good size-definitely enough to share!...
