Mikiko's Mini Afternoon Tea Guide の Borough Market 篇

Borough Market 是倫敦最古老的市場. 早在250年前已經在這裡開始做批發買賣. Market 本身保留當年維多利亞式的建築.直到今時今日, 他依然是倫敦傳統優良食品的集中地,成為許多遊客,美食家到訪的地方.連傳說中世界上最好食的FUDGE也在這裡找得到 (Burnt Sugar)

Several first-class bakeries & patisseries can be found dotted around Borough Market, serving finest quality artisan bread (De Bustibus, Flour Power City Bakery, The Flour Station & Rhodes Bakery), irresistible cakes (Ion Patisserie, Konditor and Cook, Lila’s Patisserie, Sweet Boulangerie Patisserie & Maison Bertaux) and last but not least hand made chocolate & award winning fudge (Burnt Sugar, Artisan du Chocolat & Dark Sugars)

Mikiko's Mini Afternoon Tea Guide の Harrods 篇









Address: Georgian Restaurant, 4th Floor, Harrods Department Store (Knightsbridge station)

Price: Around £25 per person for traiditional afternoon tea
有Harrods會員卡可在定期打折活動享有10% discount

Mikiko's Notes:

Harrods 是世界上最豪華的百貨公司. 在愛德華時期,位於Harrods 4 樓的 Georgian Restaurant 已經是當時貴族享受下午茶的地方. Harrods 保存了餐廳這段時期最輝煌的裝潢, 把這個傳統繼續延續下去,讓我們在現代也能享受到這古典的文化氣息.


The traditional afternoon menu comprises freshly cut sandwiches, home baked raisin scones and a selection of tea pastries from the famous Harrods Patisserie - all served with a tea of your choice.

A trip to Harrods is an experience in itself, so make sure you leave time to wander round the magnificent shop, 因為進到裡面有點像走進迷宮. 最讚的是他們的 Food Hall,單單是起士部就已經有上百種選擇! 他們的巧克力,茶葉與咖啡都是令人愛不釋手,會讓你在不知不覺間待上好幾個小時. 買伴手禮/手信記得來這裡~

在男裝部門附近的 Door 3 有一個可以寄放行李的地方 (Cloak Room).
以件計算, £3 per item or £1 per jacket. 

Mikiko's Mini Afternoon Tea Guide の Paul 篇




Address: 英國各地都有分店, 通常在大的車站或是商場都可以找的到

Price: 熱巧克力 £2~ Macaroon (杏仁小圓餅) £3~

Mikiko's Notes:
我最喜歡他們的Macaroon, 大的有五種口味 - 巧克力, 咖啡, Praline (胡桃), Vanilla (香草) & Pistachio (開心果). 小的還多了兩種口味: Raspberry (覆盆子) & 檸檬.

除了Macaroon, 他們的草莓蛋糕 (Le Fraisier) 也很不錯. 上面鋪上一層甜甜的杏仁Marzipan, 那就是將杏仁磨成極細微的粉末, 然後慢慢的與糖霜混合. Absolutely Delicious!

Covent Garden 分店還有專門教做麵包的課程!

Mikiko's Mini Afternoon Tea Guide の BISCUIT CERAMIC CAFE陶瓷咖啡店篇

Apart from well known places such as the Ritz, Claridges, Winter Garden at Landmark or the Berkeley, which features 'fashion themed afternoon tea' costing around £35 per person, London also offers a much wider range of teashops, cafes and places to take afternoon tea for an enjoyable culinary experience!


Address: 3-4 Nelson Road. Greenwich SE10 9JB

Price: Cakes around 2~3 Pounds

Mikiko's Notes: An exciting place to create my own personal masterpiece!

3 steps to an entertaining afternoon:

1. Choose a blank ceramics, such as plates, mugs, piggy banks, jewellery boxes.
2. Order your drink & a piece of their homemade cakes
3. Sit back and Paint!

最近,我在格林威治Town Centre看到一間有趣的陶瓷咖啡店。享受蛋糕之餘還可以自己創作陶瓷藝術品。他們提供半烤好的陶瓷BLANK CERAMICS,客人可以自己挑選喜歡的杯子,盤子,豬豬錢箱。上好顏色之後便可以交給店員幫您烤。逛完格林威治市集就可以回去拿您的作品~

Finger sandwiches
Chefs selection of four seasonal sandwiches

Freshly baked, homemade warm scones

Mikiko's Notes: The Rose Lounge 下午茶挺受歡迎的. It has a very elegant décor - rosy scenes, rosy sofa, the air is even scented with fresh roses! 那裏環境舒適 , 沒有很嘈雜的感覺 , 茶具十分精緻 , 喝起茶來加倍賞心悅目 , 還有豎琴伴奏!特別適合三五知己聊聊天 , 好好享受整個下午. 之前帶過幾位日本朋友來喝下午茶,他們都很喜歡這裡浪漫的佈置&貼心的服務, 還說在東京也找不到麼漂亮的地方.

Mikiko's Mini Afternoon Tea Guide の the Sketch 篇




Address: 9 Conduit Street, Mayfair, London W1S 2XG

Price:
Traditional Afternoon Tea served sketch style, assorted finger sandwiches
(smoked salmon, cucumber, cooked ham and Dijon mustard, egg and mayonnaise),
fruit scones served with seasonal jam and clotted cream,
selection of sketch pastries and choice of teas

£24 per person

Mikiko's Notes: A truely unique venue! 這店環境裝修浮誇. washrooms 是有格調的恐龍蛋型.
However, I was let down by the quality of food they serve in their Tea Room. Finger sandwiches were dried up and scones were re-heated ones. Evening service is much better, but quality does come with a price tag at this restaurant (you could easily spend £100 per head for a three course dinner).

但值得一提的是他們的蛋糕確實做得很精緻。連英國高級百貨公司FORTNUM & MASON 也有專櫃賣他們的蛋糕。

Mikiko's Mini Afternoon Tea Guide の Peyton & Byrne 杯杯蛋糕篇

183 Euston Road, London NW1 2BE (@ The Wellcome Collection)

Mikiko's Notes: 傳統英式蛋糕店. Great place for cup cake lover! This is also the place to go if you want to sample some real British cakes, such as Coffee & Walnut Cake (咖啡胡桃蛋糕), Gooey Chocolate Cake (巧克力蛋糕), Luxury Carrot Cake (胡蘿蔔蛋糕), Open Pear & Almond Tart (杏仁梨子撻) ...
他們的 CUP CAKE(杯杯蛋糕)是非常可愛的! 令人無法抗拒~ 我個人比較喜歡HEALS傢俱店裡的分店. 店舖雖然有點小,但他們有最多CUP CAKE款式~

除了下午茶外,他們的早餐也值得推薦~

Mikiko's Notes: Even though it’s one of the top tables in London, it is relatively easy to get into casually, as they allow walk-ins. Service here is attentive and you always made to feel welcome. There seems to be no 'priviledged service' given to the many celebrities/ famous faces you may see whilst dining there. The super high ceiling with iron chandeliers does makes you feel as if you’re dining in a castle, yet it is in the heart of London.

一向吸引不少名人紅星光顧的Wolseley雖然說這是一間感覺很高級的餐廳 , 其實不需要訂位也可以進去。 這裡侍應很有禮貌 , 不會有拘束的感覺。 雜誌也報導過Sarah Jessica Parker, Jack Nicholson, Paris Hilton, 基努李維 等巨星在這裡用餐。

Mikiko's Mini Afternoon Tea Guide の Ladurée 篇





Address: 87/135 Brompton Road (inside Harrods)
London SW1X 7XL

Price: £21 per person for 'L’heure du thé ' Set, which includes Finger Sandwiches, selections of French pastries, cakes & tea/coffee/hot chocolate.

Mikiko's notes: This is one of my favourite places to treat myself after a busy week at work. Must Try 推介 - 特濃巧克力 & 各式各樣macaroon (杏仁小圓餅). Caramel & Sea Salt Macaroon - 我給他滿分! 還有我最愛的 St Honore 蛋糕 & Mont Blanc 栗子塔
在東京銀座&日本橋的三越百貨也有分店~

有趣的是在 GREEN PARK 附近分店的 drinks menu 居然比 KNIGHTSBRIDGE 總店便宜些。所以,如果只想喝喝他們聞名的特濃巧克力的話,可以考慮去 GREEN PARK 分店。

分店 Address: Burlington Arcade 71-72, London W1J 0QX (next to Royal Academy of Art, 世界聞名的古老百貨公司 Fortnum & Mason 對面)
