The Place to Eat at John Lewis

The Place to Eat at John Lewis

We’d made the mistake of watching episode of Friends where Rachel and Chandler eat a lot of cheesecake and so we were on the hunt for cheesecake and tea. It’s more difficult than you think to track down cheesecake in a cafe and we were running out of time before my brother had to catch a train so we headed for the most reliable of the department store cafes: The Place to Eat in John Lewis.

There was no cheesecake, but there was a selection of cakes, pastries, scones and gateaux, so we were happy. The only odd thing about John Lewis is that they are happy to give you pots of hot water and china cups and saucers and lovely cake, but they still insist in serving milk in the stupid tiny plastic pots!

Teapot? Yes, china.
Leaf tea? No, Twinings teabags.
Milk jug? No!
Price? £1.40 for a pot.
Cake? Yes, lots and lots.
Go again? Yes.

I like tea and if possible, I'd like it to be loose leaf rooibos in a pot served with milk in a little jug. I'll try and find the places that do this and I'll tell you what they're like. Let me know if you can think of any cafes I haven't covered, I'll get to them if I can.
