Restaurant description

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.

    A truly exceptional Afternoon tea ! I could not recommend more than that. The quality of the food, from taste to presentation is well above anything in London. The only other establishment I would compare and appreciate as much is the afternoon tea from Sketch (Pierre Gagnaire concept restaurant). The theme of Dominique Ansel afternnon tea, takes you on a journey from a seed to a blooming flower. It is presented with taste and the beautifully arranged when it is brought to your table. The taste of each choux is unique and combines delightful combinations that are awaking your taste buds like nothing else. everyone in the party had their favourite for savoury and sweet, and we all debated and changed our mind several time as we discussed how good this one or that one was. But I will say that even a very fussy and difficult to please teen found some "wow" morsel and asked for more. I never though I would be surprised by scones, as I thought they would be the quite ordinary/boring bit of the meal, but even there the strawberry shaped little treasures they are serving to accompany the scones completely fooled us, what a lovely and delicious surprised they are! The whole course was incredibly tasteful, a joyful experience, the service was impeccable, and the team friendly and attentive to each person at the table. We ordered a box of the house special Cronut to take home with us before to leave and the bag was brought to us in a timely manner. This month recipe is Apricot Jam & Honey Chamomile Ganache with Lemon Sugar. Delicious. The Ritz and other multiple stars/luxury hotel of London really have to pick up their game, as the excellence of the afternoon tea offered by Dominique Ansel is at the top of the top. We left with big smiles, completely satiated, and already planning our next visit.

    This is our first time with the afternoon tea but not the first time with the cafe itself. The Afternoon Tea is SPLENDID as the name. The concept is very gorgeous, the tea, the savoury and the sweets are great as one would expected from Dominique Ansel but it is the service we get that pushes the experience wayyy beyond our expectation. We will definitely go back.

    The food and service were fabulous. So nicely presented ,great variety of colours ,flavours and textures,the person who served us was really attentive in a good way and generally it was a very enjoyable experience. One small point ,unrelated to the food was that there was no soap in the bathroom dispenser when I went to the bathroom.And the bathroom did not feel 100% clean. So for me ,at what I consider a high end tea venue ,that was a little disappointing .

    Went there for the afternoon tea with my mum. I LOVED it! Amazing food, especially the scones! A small selection of tea, but what they had was delicious. The staff was superb! Very kind, attentive, charming. The extra room they serve the tea in, is very whimsical, lovely decorated and invites to relax and enjoy.

    Whilst initially thought ecpensive, it was for a special birthday and we had the most expensive tea. Whilst eating we decided the cost was worth the exquisite food we had oresented to us and thoroughly enjoyed the complete experience. Well worth it for a special event.
