I drove past this Tea Room and noticed it had changed. I'm not sure when this happened, but I liked what I saw and decided to pay a visit for breakfast. The decor has been well thought out, bright, inviting, and sophisticated. A great addition to Portsmouth.
The breakfast menu I thought was somewhat lacking in options. Personally I would have liked to have seen things such as poached eggs on toast, bagels or maybe even a smoked salmon option. This cafe could carry off these kind of chic choices, but the menu was limited to 3 or 4 options. We ordered 2 full English breakfast's which were ok, but nothing on the plate stood out in terms of quality considering the produce is all locally sourced -(Buckwells, Mislingford Farm).
Would I go again? Yes, but not for breakfast, maybe for afternoon tea and cake, as this seems to be their speciality. A few small hiccups with the service, and no sign of salt or pepper on any tables (even when we asked for it, it never came), which was a shame.
Would I recommend? Yes, give it a go. Hopefully the breakfast menu changes from time to time, and it is a great contemporary environment which will hopefully thrive. More good looking tea rooms/cafes in our area would be fantastic!!
