After a challenging couple of months, I finally got to fully relax this past weekend. Sunday brought with it London spring sunshine, glorious! I headed straight out to my winter battered garden, time to clear up, discover what survived the cold winter and get the garden ready for planting new arrivals.
But the real, REAL treat was Afternoon Tea at Edith’s House. I guess in some ways this newest arrival to North London’s Crouch End is simply bonkers but in fact it is absolutely perfect.
Step in through the front door, back in time, into your Auntie or grandma’s house, kitsch galore, melamine furniture in abundance, lace, wallpaper and bygone knick-knacks.
SO WHERE WOULD YOU LIKE TO HAVE YOUR TEA SERVED?
The dining room or the parlour?
Sat on the bed in the bedroom or perhaps in the hallway?
No tables left? How about the toilet then?
Décor aside (and that was pretty good) the scones are top notch, hot, fresh ,tasty, different and the tea and coffee are Superb ( I opted for the Cinnamon scone, yum!)
Last but not least, the house pooch Roux, trying to convince you to share some of your food…
One thing I know for sure is that I’m most definitely coming back!
