Our British love for tea and cake is certainly reflected with the increase of little tea rooms popping up all over the south coast. Here’s our guide to just a few within range of our properties.
The Tea Party – Lee-on-the-Solent
This vintage little tea room boosts some serious afternoon tea decor. With a vast variety of cakes and flavours of tea you can not go wrong here.
Even the staff look elegant in their classic dress and pinnys. A great place to take your mum.
Josie’s Deli – Bishops Waltham
Josie’s is a little bit more than just a tea house. Serving up a delicious range of coffee and cake alongside an impressive range of wine gives this place the perfect location for a cheeky glass or two.
Our favourite is the hot chocolate served in a mug with a huge straw and cream!
Elsie’s Tea Rooms – Botley, Southampton
A cosy little tea room situated in Southampton’s hub for fine tea since August 2013. Set in a beautiful characteristic building with a vaulted ceiling and original beams the building was originally a stable and all its’ original features have been maintained and complimented by beautifully “upcycled” shabby chic furniture serving “proper tea” in pretty china cups and saucers.
Elsie’s serve a light breakfast/brunch and lunch menu complimented by either loose leaf tea or teapigs tea and an ethical blend of coffee. Homemade cakes, scones and afternoon tea are also a speciality.
Southsea Coffee – Southsea
Coffee. Food. Awesome cake. All described to a tea. Placed on the delightful Osbourne road Southsea Coffee has become a one of Twitter’s busiest pages for customer reviews. The courtyard is cute for Al Fresco supping.
We love the infamous home made ‘Cold Brew’ in a bottle all served alongside some of the most delightful crockery we have ever seen. Go and come out happy.
