The annual Afternoon Tea this year was at Le Restaurant de Paul. It was to be a French take on the traditional Afternoon Tea.
Pastel de Nata is a Portuguese custard tart. They are best when they are warm and ever so moreish. Our favourite place for the Pastel de Nata has to be Canela Cafe in Covent Garden.
If you are looking for this coffee shop, then do not expect to see a sign saying Andronicas outside of it. Instead look for a neon lit Espresso Bar sign in the window.
If you didn’t know that Joe Allen was along this very small quiet side street, it would not be the obvious place to look for a restaurant. It is hidden away from the all the main restaurants in Covent Garden.
