AndrewB thinks it is slightly on the expensive side (cappuccino was £2.50 in 2007) but worth a visit for the style.

secretlondon visited one Saturday in March 2009. To be honest I didn't think it was stylish or expensive. Pots of tea range from £2.50 to £4. I had a pot of Moroccan mint tea (enough for four cups) photo and a chocolate eclair photo for £3.80.

They have about 20 or so varieties of tea, and some wine. They also do cakes. My cake was really nice — it had chocolate cream inside.

Even though there is a lot of seating — outside, the shop, a ramp down to the more seating at back of the shop, and an unseen upstairs — they were full at 5pm on a Saturday afternoon.

The decor is a bit chintzy as you'd expect with lots of chandeliers. The music was Prince, which didn't really fit though.
