Before there was fashion blogging I was the editor of the multi award winning In-spire LS Magazine and it was in 2012 that I interviewed the talent that is @littledonatella. So much has developed for her in business and in entertainment since then so it was only right that I returned to my roots and catch up with her for more inspirational insights.

A women on a mission......

The Kitchen @Tower Bridge

If you haven’t had afternoon tea before then you haven’t lived. Okay, seems like quite an over the top statement.  However, the truth is; it is quite a nice experience and is the perfect way to unwind and to catch up with friends. On this occasion I met with my friend LaToya who had arranged for us to have a catch up and a few nibbles at ‘The Kitchen’ which is situated in Tower Bridge.

Quite easy to find; the main issue was parking. However, on taking the wrong turn and taking a major detour down a one way system. We managed to find our footing and got to our destination on time. We booked our afternoon of tea on a Sunday which I have to say is the best day to do it; what with London traffic.

The Kitchen itself was a pleasant, welcoming and vibrant venue which was closely matched by staff who were expertly trained in giving excellent customer service. I love venues which are bright and airy and this one was extremely comfortable. I particularly loved the modern London themed decor on the wall and the colourful and comfortable lounge areas.

Now of course, the main reason why we headed down to have afternoon tea was to have a slice of the cakes on offer and were there cakes on offer. The usual offering of afternoon tea consists of a number of tasty cakes. This time around we had the option of carrot, chocolate, sponge and rainbow cake. (The rainbow cake was my favourite, it tasted TOO GOOD!)

You then get the option of cream filled scones. This for me was too big and I’m not a major fan of cream so it became a messy creation of mush on my plate.  However, pushing that aside made space for the sparkling wine we were given on arrival and the massive mug of Earl Grey tea I had requested.

Moving swiftly on, you get a selection of sandwiches also; which may tickle your fancy. Cucumber sandwiches (yes just cucumber in white bread) is custom in afternoon tea. Aside from this, we also got to taste the most succulent salmon sandwiches (the salmon just melted in my mouth quite literally) and egg mayonnaise sandwiches which I had to push aside as that is my idea of hell on a plate!

Overall, I had a great dining experience and fully recommend that if you are looking for somewhere to have afternoon tea you come to ‘The Kitchen’ to wet your appetite. The food was great and the setting made it all the more brilliant.  An exceptional dining experience; one that was not only affordable (get on to Groupon for the latest deals) but lots of fun too.

Here’s to a Sunday well spent!
