For afternoon tea without the fuss, teapod in Tower bridge is a easygoing, relaxed place to visit. The contemporary tea and coffee house serves up a delicious selection of warming drinks, sweets and savories with a passion.
The understated surroundings leave no room for pretentious presentation and there's no gilted crockery in sight. Rather, the food and service speaks for it self - after all the proof is in the taste.
Though modest and very much boutique, the tea room is no plain jane; the interesting colour scheme of magenta and lime green achieves a fresh vibe, evoking both a feeling of energy and tranquility.
The afternoon tea menu consists of salmon and cucumber bites, rustic scones with clotted cream and homeade jam, a rich baked raspberry and white chocolate brownie, complete with your own pot of steaming hot tea. Whether you love the traditional breakfast or wish to opt for something more exotic such as Moroccan mint, the choice is yours.
At £11.00 per person, the price is impressively affordable and befitting for this delightful gem of a eatery.
