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!
This is a very authentic cafe with great homemade cakes. A cute feature is the tea cup chandelier! The only disappointment is that there is not enough seating and the seating that they do have, is very close together. Outdoor seating is very cramped and it is more like being in someone’s backyard. The cafe was extremely busy on the weekend that we visited it.
If you do go to this tea shop, take a look at the air raid shelter in the basement.
