Babington’s Tea Room
Time Out says
Everything from breakfast, lunch and dinner is served at this expat hotspot, but it is the classic afternoon tea that draws the crowds.
Homesick British expats have been heading to this quaint establishment at the foot of the Spanish Steps for a little taste of home ever since it opened its doors in 1893. The first place to serve tea in the Eternal City, it became a favourite meeting spot of visiting film stars and celebrities: Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton came here for romantic trysts during the filming of Cleopatra and even famed film director Federico Fellini was partial to the English muffins. Everything from breakfast, lunch and dinner is served here but it is the classic afternoon tea that draws the crowds with cucumber sandwiches and proper scones served on delicate patterned china.
