I was scheduled to meet Dan near the Crown Hotel, but like most Korean address' I was unsure where "London Tea" was exactly located... until I looked up and voila, next to all the car repair shops there it was atop a small mound, quite easy to spot.
Inside is an eclectic mix match of old world antique charm, handmade ceramic mugs, and a side of West Village Sunday brunch, simple & delicious.
The owner and the chef work hand in hand to prepare not just a perfectly crafted meal, but also create an intimate atmosphere to enjoy a cup of afternoon tea. First we were welcomed with a delightful plate of the chef's rendition of the french toast: Cream cheese filling with fresh cranberries oozing out between two hefty pieces of brioche toast and of course what would french toast be without BACON :) Yes, please!
Oh~ and look banana slices peeping through the golden crust of the pancake~
This was my favorite, granted this isn't a new invention, but when it's good, you just shut up and enjoy.
And as a parting gift, chocolate fudge cake, need I say more?
Everything is made fresh and on the spot, the desserts are all specially prepared by the chef herself.
