    Description"Tea & Cake London" is a comprehensive guide to the best places to enjoy tea and cake across London. Charming, knowledgeable and often surprising, this lovely book seeks out more than 70 cafes, bakeries and tearooms worth discovering, from iconic establishments to modern classics and undiscovered gems. Celebrating the history and ritual of taking tea, while embracing London's currently thriving independent cafe scene, it brings together an eclectic collection of venues, all beautifully illustrated with evocative photography. Whether you're looking for a traditional afternoon tea, a casual cafe in which to gossip over a brew, a bakery selling elite buttery treats, innocent vegan delights or an oddball tearoom with a twist, "Tea & Cake London" has the answer. The book has 6 chapters, each focusing on a different face of London's tea and cake scene, from formal afternoon teas, patisseries and bakeries, right down to market stalls selling cake. Each entry highlights a special destination, and tempts you to indulge in a much-loved and very British pastime. And why resist? After all, there's fewer pleasures as simple or appealing as settling somewhere cosy, tucking into a slice of something nice, and sipping on a well-brewed cup of tea.

    Review quote
    "offers a frighteningly fattening tour of the capital's tearooms, cafes and bakeries" "Vogue""Pick up this book and you'll be tempted to take visiting tea and cake shops as your new full-time hobby." "Cosmopolitan""It's hard to think of a book that could possibly appeal to Design Week more than "Tea & Cake London"." "Design Week""offers a frighteningly fattening tour of the capital's tearooms, cafes and bakeries" "Vogue""This is a quite remarkably detailed account of a vast amount of tea, coffee and cake venues, many of which you would be extremely lucky to find without being guided to them." "Boughton's Coffee House"
