Le Tea Room

Le Tea Room (Saint-Rémy-au-Bois)

  • share

There’s a 1926 Citroën in the courtyard, a floral couch perfect for afternoon tea and, of course, there’s a Normand sideboard at this old farmhouse that’s been converted into a restaurant with communal dining and homemade jam a go-go. Brits Nick and Judith sure welcome you into their space with oodles of old-fashioned charm. What kind of treats should you expect? Lovely scones and ginger cake, incredible crème fraîche from Montcavrel, crazily good raspberry jam (just one of the flavors that they also sell to go), Earl grey tea with strong bergamot notes, and even meringues with homemade ice cream. For an even-more intense experience that transports you outside of France, don’t miss the Indian, British or Scottish brunches, or the jam workshops! Brilliant! // F.P.

FEELING THIRSTY? In addition to the fine infused waters (Irish Thompson’s tea at €3 a teapot), there are individual French presses, hot chocolate and rose lemonade (€3 each). For brunch, there’s a nice house aperitif made with orange juice and marmalade (€3.50 a glass).

PRICE: Snacks €12, brunch €20 (upon reservation), jam classes €50 for three hours.
