Up on the 2nd floor of Liberty on Great Marlborough Street in London is a small cafe where shoppers can rest and enjoy some refreshment. Cafe Liberty offers breakfast, lunch, brunch, and afternoon tea every day of the week.
There are 2 options for afternoon tea:
- Cream tea (plain & fruit scones with strawberry jam and Cornish clotted cream, as well as tea or coffee) for £10.95
- Afternoon tea for £20.95 (or £38.95 for two). With a glass of Perrier Jouët champagne brings the total to £30.95 or £57.95 for two
Tray 1: Selection of finger sandwiches; Tray 2: plain and fruit scones; Tray 3: pastries & treats.
I didn’t expect much from the afternoon tea until I tried the sandwiches and the pastries. Unfortunately, I’m always just too full when I get to the scones so I could barely finish my set of pastries but it was unbelievably scrumptious!
The one main downside about having afternoon tea at Cafe Liberty is that it’s a fairly small space so it’s quite cramped. One has to be particularly careful as mothers try to squeeze prams and push chairs between two rows of square tables. Moreover, because everyone is sitting close to one another, it’s not the best place for private conversations – or peace and quiet for that matter.
