Cream Tea Set
We had difficulty making reservations for an afternoon tea session at the more popular places, as we had failed to realise earlier that it was Halloween today. The hotel staff tried to help us call a few places, but alas, all were fully booked.
Eventually, on the actual day, they offered us cream tea at their own cafe instead. This was fine with us, since we were still too full from breakfast anyway :p
We had Earl Grey with scones, clotted cream and jam. We loved that the scones were served warm and the clotted cream was oh-so-lovely and light, we had to resist getting more!
Latte and Hot Chocolate
It was our last breakfast in London, so we gotta have more traditional London food!
We had walked past Vale Victoria when we went to TILES, so we decided to give it a try as well because it looked like an authentic London cafe, and there were many customers when we walked past the last time.
The decorations were actually quite old school and the staff were all dressed up for Halloween, making this a rather interesting (and scary at first because we didn’t expect the face of the waitress to be full of blood!) breakfast experience 🙂
Bright red storefront
Tomorrow we would be flying off to Iceland so we needed to drop off one luggage at The Rubens At The Palace today (so that we only bring one luggage with us to Iceland). Side note: The Rubens were great to allow us to store our luggage for 4 days!
We had just dropped off our luggage at The Rubens and were searching for a light lunch, as we had a large sausage roll from The Pasty Shop just before we boarded the tube. Found Tiles Restaurant and Wine Bar just diagonally across and serving fish and chips, so we popped right in!
