Really excellent vegan options

Everything was so delicious. The tea, the scones, all the little sandwiches and desserts. You absolutely won’t miss out as a vegan. Make sure you let them know you’re vegan before you reserve. I went with a group of omnivores, one person was gluten free, and we all loved the food and the experience.

As good as London's best

I've had beautiful vegan afternoon tea in the heart of London, and this is the only place that compares. This menu is not an accommodation--it is a purpose-built vegan menu from the ground up: scones, finger sandwiches (chickpea salad, mushroom pate, edamame hummus, and a James Beard creation, to name a few), and desserts (chocolate cake, carrot cake, panna cotta(!)).

The tea menu is prix fixe: $37 includes the set courses of food, and bottomless tea. The English breakfast was bold and complex, the Earl Grey 'creme' was one of the best teas I've had in my life. A pricey endeavor, but a beautiful experience for a romantic time and/or special occasion.

Note: this is definitely a five-star place, even though HappyCow doesn't allow that rating for non-vegan establishments!

Pros: Beautiful gourmet food, Excellent service, Great for special occasioons

Cons: Pricey, Requires separate admission to Huntington Gadens, Tea room interior decor is nothing special
