Best afternoon tea in London if you are a foodie. It is more like a tasting menu rather than afternoon tea and full of interesting and surprising flavours. In addition, it is beautifully presented and service is excellent. But stay away if you want cucumber sandwiches and Victoria sponge cake.

Awarded World’s Best Pastry Chef by the World’s 50 Best Restaurant awards, Dominique Ansel’s eponymous London bakery has launched its afternoon tea of sweet and savoury bites inspired by a blooming garden.

Following the path of a seed growing and blossoming into a full-bloomed flower, the menu begins with savoury bites and ends with a selection of sweets. Freshly baked, warm scones with clotted cream and homemade fresh fruit jam will also be served, as well as optional additions from wine and champagne to premium dishes like butter-poached Canadian lobster rolls and Sevruga caviar.

Other menu highlights include the Fallen Leaf, steak tartare with crème fraîche on brioche toast, the Seed, wild mushroom with confit garlic and squid ink choux, and the Bud, lavender meringue, coconut ganache, passion fruit gelée and white chocolate petals. Choose from the Signature Afternoon Tea, add a glass of bubbles with the Sparkling Tea, or opt for the Splendid, which adds butter-poached lobster roll, and Sevruga caviar with buckwheat blini & crème fraiche.

Afternoon Tea is served each Thursday-Sunday for 2 seatings at 2pm and 4:15pm in the bakery’s beautiful covered garden terrace. Dominique Ansel Bakery is a 5-minute walk from Victoria Station.

Kindly note that for afternoon tea service, changes and modifications are politely declined.

    Food was beautiful, service excellent, overall very pleasant. Regarding the setting. I would ditch the hanging flowers, but keep the hanging glass balls with flowers inside.

    The 3 of us booked an afternoon tea, 2 cronuts and some dishes from the menu. Service: i personally liked the service, the waitresses that served us were very welcoming, knoledgeable and polite .The cronuts : one was more cooked than the other and had twice the filling . Taste was nice.for tgese reason i would score them 3 out of 5 stars. Afternoon tea: presentation was very good. Some of them were bot flavour balanced to our opinion but overall was 4 out 5 stars. We decided to only book 1 afternoon tea because 2 of us were vegetarian and unfortunately you dont have vegetarian options. We loved the special tea blend so much we were hoping to buy it from you but you dont sell it.

    Lovely setting and service. Interesting and delicious dishes. The lobster rolls were our favourite. The scones were served with clotted cream strawberry jam "strawberries". Each dish was very tasty.
