New Restaurant Wednesday - The London Tea Room

Diva’s, I’ve missed you! In between re-starting grad school (note to self: this will take over your life) and losing my Internet at home (don’t ask, but it’s been the ultimate first world pain), I’ve neglected my corner of the Internet for far too long.

What could bring me out a self-imposed blogging break? The impending birth of the World’s Most Famous Fetus, of course. In case you’ve been living under a rock for the last few weeks, my two best friends are expecting! Minus a few Aussie radio hosts, it seems that the whole world is excited for the two young Royals and naturally, I wanted to celebrate too.

Fellow anglophile, Katie, and I headed for the center of all things British in St. Louis – The London Tea Room. Founded in 1997, The London Tea Room serves imported teas, scones, quiche, and sandwiches fit for a Queen (or a commoner, as so many of us are.) Need a little sophistication in your life? They serve Afternoon Tea, a quintessential English tradition started by Anna, the seventh Duchess of Bedford, in 1840. Brits have been enjoying this mid-afternoon snack ever since and The London Tea Room gives St. Louisans a chance to eat like Royalty, too.

If you’re looking to enjoy a spot of tea just like Duchess Catherine or need the perfect place to pretend you’re British for a day, head to the London Tea Room. Whether you're there for the Creamy Tomato Soup (a staple on the menu and perfect for a chilly fall day), a pot of tea from their extensive Tea Catalogue or a traditional Mcvities Digestive, you'll find The London Tea Room unpretentious, welcoming, and frightfully British. Pinky up!
