Les Deux Salons

A couple of steps from Trafalgar Square you can enjoy a cup of tea in elegant surroundings evocative of 19th century Paris.

The interior of Brasserie Les Deux Salons is beautiful, with its dark wood panelling, long copper topped bar and black and white mosaic floor.

The bar area, where you can take tea, has a delightful mismatch of padded chairs and little sofas upholstered with carpet.

A choice of teas include Assam, Darjeeling and a green mulberry a ‘dark roasted hojicha from Mr Obayashi tea who makes tea for the emperor of Japan’.

I had a wonderfully delicate and refreshing Ancient White from Mannong Village in SW China served in a lovely silver pot.

With tea starting at £3.25, maybe not an everyday cuppa, but well worth it for fine leaf-tea in style.

A perfect spot to escape the bustle of central London.

Once refreshed, you may like a stroll along Strand to the Courtauld Gallery where you can’t see Edouard Manet’s A Bar at the Folies Bergere, not unlike the bar at Les Deux Salons.

    This looks very much the sort of thing I like when on a visit to the capital – will definitely try this on my next visit. I wonder if they have cakes?

  2. Kitty says:

    Miss Elisabeth, thank you for comment. Apparently they used to do afternoon tea, but it wasn’t popular, but the nice lady said you can just have dessert – I have put a link to the menu in my ‘Notes’. Looks good eh?

  3. Hi Kitty,

    I’m finally back from holiday and working my way through 158 emails (after deleting over 100 span emails!). Anyway, nice to be reading your blog again.

    What immediately strikes me about Les Deux Salons is the use of a silver teapot! Love that, and a bit unique, isn’t it (notwithstanding hotel teas, of course). I will definitely try to visit this tea house.

    Thank you for your lovely post.

    D.

    Dear Tea in England, Welcome back to Blighty! Sounds like you need a strong cuppa already:-) Les Deux Salons is more restaurant than tea room, but worth a visit if you in town.
