Damson, St. Giles High Street

Damson Cafe, St. Giles High Street
Silver Tips
White Tea

Damson is perched on the corner of New Compton Street and St Giles High Street. The hand-painted sign and soft grey-green painted woodwork make a refreshing, almost defiant, contrast to the branding in the imposing Stickle Brick fortress of Central St Giles in whose shadow it sits.

I received a friendly welcome and chose a pot Silver Tips White Tea from a list that included Jasmine Pearls, Earl Grey, English Breakfast, Chai and Rooibos. My pot of tea, which was brought to my table, was lovely, light and refreshing.

The pleasant interior is fresh and airy with high-shuttered windows. Recycled wood and stained-glass panelling along one wall add interest and warmth and there were beautiful fresh lilies on each table.

Damson also sell a selection sandwiches, cakes and pastries which all looked delicious. The space is amazingly calm and peaceful considering the location.

A welcome haven.
