Walk straight past the crowded open area of Starbucks in Whiteleys and head to the calmer Bella Italia for your coffee break! There is plenty of seating inside or out on the terrace. The decor had that warming rustic feel to it!
The tea was served by the pot and there was definitely enough for two cups. Service was good and once we had ordered, we were left to our own accord. It wasn’t hard to get the attention of the staff when we wanted the bill though.
On a final note, there was a shady character who kept walking in and out of the restaurant, lingering for moments on end. It looked like he was scouting the area for unattended bags or valuables. So just keep your valuables close to you. It is a shame that not more places have the security hooks under the tables for bags.
