After spending the morning wandering along Oxford Street, my mum and I stumbled upon this little gem of a cafe.
Nestled among the children’s section on the 5th floor of House of Fraser, you can tuck into some of the most delicious scones, cakes and pastries I’ve come across on London’s busiest shopping street.
I loved the mismatched tables and chairs painted in pastel pinks, blues and lilacs and the adorable kids fairytale artwork on the walls with ‘antique style’ plates. It was a great mix of Cath Kidston, Laura Ashley and my granny’s front room in one place.
And the best bits – it’s affordable and quiet!
I’m not sure how long The Tea Terrace has been open for, and there doesn’t seem to be any website specifically for it (other than this announcement that it is also opened in Guildford) but I can tell you that it’s well worth a visit.
Mum and I tucked into warm scones with clotted cream and raspberry jam and tea was served in Royal Albert cups and saucers – adorable!
If you’re out and about shopping this week, I definitely recommend popping in. I already have plans to come back for their afternoon tea and a big fat slice of Victoria Sponge cake!
