We had a great time at Candella Tea Room. The place is quite small but that makes it very cozy, authentic and charming. The afternoon tea (mini sandwiches, scones and pastries) were fresh and delicious. The tea selection is large and diverse and the staff was very attentive. A very good value for money according to me, we will certainly come back on our next trip to London!

The place is fantastic to enjoy a perfect afternoon tea. The food was delicious, especially the scones! A plus was the Christmas atmosphere, with low themed music and appropriate decorations. All in all an amazing experience. If I may give an advice, I would suggest dusting more often. Thank you, we’ll come back for sure!

Quelle merveilleux endroit où prendre le thé dans une ambiance douce et conviviale! Le décor et la vaisselle vintage nous amène dans une époque révolue; tout à fait ce que nous recherchions. Bouquet de roses fraîches à chacune des tables. La nourriture est un délice, mention spéciale au scone chaud et à la clotted cream. Faites vos réservations à l’avance, ce bijou se mérite!

The tea was very good, but I would like it even more if he was less infused (3-4 minutes and have the possibility after to put out the leaves).

Only thing I would improve is having faster service, but it was packed when we went so it was understandable. Fantastic place overall!
