Afternoon Tea – a classic. Loved and enjoyed for hundreds of years, bringing people together over perfect sandwiches, cakes and a lovely cuppa.
It’s no suprise then that we have an entire week dedicated to celebrating it really! And at LIDS we’re lucky enough to have one of the cities best loved Afternoon Teas available to order straight to your door from Mrs Danvers’ Cafe.
The cafe started 6 years ago, when owner Maria felt the need to change career – she had previously worked as an alcohol counsellor, in a hostel and was training to be a psychotherapist but having loved cooking and baking since being taught by her grandma as a child she decided to make the leap and open the cafe. To make sure she was at the top of her game she trained with italian pastry chef Connie Oriolo and has developed her tastes and menu from this.
Those of you who know the classic Daphne Du Maurier novel Rebecca will be aware of the cafes name coming from the dark and gothic Mrs Danvers’ – not the usual florals you might imagine for a cafe but we love the striking Mrs Danvers!
Still need more convincing to give one of her brilliant Afternoon Teas a try? in 2019 her Afternoon Tea was voted as one of the best in the UK by Olive magazine! Our customers agree too!
“Really enjoyed Mrs Danvers afternoon tea. Really special treat which I’ve had a few times. Getting this has cheered me up during last few weeks. Love the amount savoury items too. Would give 10 stars if I could!”
“Ordered one for my mother’s birthday treat while she was in lockdown. She was absolutely delighted and said that the quality, variety and service she received was second to none. It took her two days to finish off all the lovely food. Highly recommen”
“We ordered 32 afternoon teas for some of our Playgroup children & staff to enjoy during their end of year zoom service. They were all delivered on time by LIDS and were absolutely delicious Mrs Danvers catered to our large order and was able to accommodate both gluten free and vegetarian diets. Thank you Mrs Danvers and Lids for helping make our day special.”
