Last Wednesday I had the awesome opportunity to try afternoon tea at Patisserie Valerie’s SoHo location. And you all know by now that I cannot turn down the opportunity to have afternoon tea. Sweet things and tiny food, are, as you know, some of my biggest vices. Tiny food just tastes better than normal sized food, right?
Plus it was a great opportunity to catch up with two of my favourite blogging gals Katy and Ala. It was a lovely sized group for a blogging event, just enough people to make it social, but not too many people so that you don’t get to speak to everyone. And of course we had the dreaded “which way to eat a scone” debate.
My favourite of the sandwich course was the little pepper quiches. The only downside was that I liked them so much I could have had a hundred of them. Like the addiction of pizza bagel bites when we were younger. The chicken and pesto sandwich was my runner-up favourite.
Breads and treats are Patisserie Valerie’s lifeblood and it certainly didn’t disappoint. My favourite options were the chocolate eclairs and the mini Victoria sponge. The berry mousse had a nice taste, but a crazy texture, and I get a bit weird about textures sometimes.
All in all, it was a very satisfying tea with lovely company!

What’s your favourite part of afternoon tea? And are you clotted cream then jam or jam then clotted cream?
