My mother and I were traveling. From three days in Brussels and Brugges to three days soaking up London. Our days would get busy quickly, but I thought it might be nice to introduce my mom to London by going to a district to experience, too: Covent Garden. A high tea and stroll around Covent Garden sounded like a great afternoon.
I surprised my mom, so I don’t know if she’d thought up many expectations other than delight. But I’d had a little time to think about it. I knew there were many, many places to have high tea and that I could have read reviews of different ones forever, but I chose a recommendation from my hotel and reserved a table for us at 4:30pm (which is when I choose to think is the perfect time).
B Bakery exceeded my expectations.
It was charming! The decor was whimsical, pink and chic; both the artistry, the mismatched, perfectly delicate china and the pastries.
It was a girly, feminine, luxurious experience of one tantalizing pastry and finger sandwich after another.
Then scones. With clotted cream and jam.
So Totally. Decadent.
So Totally A Vision of our Perfect British Life.
So Totally A Perfect Mother-Daughter/Girlfriend/Traveler’s Afternoon in London.
Would afternoon tea be on your London agenda?
