Earl Grey and Rose (CLOSED)
Time Out says
Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.
Kooky and craftsy, this dinky tea-room is a welcome refuge from Streatham’s insalubrious main road. Owner Lydia Wood-Power is skilled in floristry, jewellery design and baking, and has jammed more than a few of her favourite things into her girly, vintage-themed café. Every wall is decked out with pink fabric bunting, there are own-made trinkets for sale, and you can even rent out sewing-machines by the hour.
The food is equally off-beat, with an interesting selection of own-made sandwiches, salads and cakes. Our pastrami, Emmental and pickle came wedged between two toasted slices of moreish sourdough bread; other artisanal breads and loaves are also are on offer.
The good selection of teas, from apple and chamomile to the eponymous earl grey, are served in colourful pots. Lighting is a little ‘interrogation lamp setting’, but the only real chink in the armour on our visit was the desperately slow and occasionally scatty service.
