Re: Tea Room

Lehaut you are closer to the U.K. than we are so maybe that makes a differenceSmile [:)]
Visiting two stately homes near St Malo last Summer, what we really wanted afterwards was a cup of tea (and maybe a cake!).................but no, they just don't do that, such a missed opportunity. However I suspect it's the red tape and licensing that prevents this.

they do cakes tea and coffee and light meals, including cream teas which I have witnessed French people eating for breakfast Woot! [:-))]

The fact that an opinion has been widely held is no evidence whatever that it is not utterly absurd; indeed in view of the silliness of the majority of mankind, a widespread belief is more likely to be foolish than sensible.

Also in the Gard, Norman; one example locally is shown in the link I gave to Tea-potes at Anduze, which even shows a banner hanging up with 'tea & cakes' on it!

Well, Cendrillon, if you're down in the Gard you'll be welcome to drop in - chez nous or our next door neighbours!  Smile [:)]

Re: Tea Room

As an aside, has the fetish for cupcakes died down in the UK yet? The last time I was there the bloody things were everywhere, icing half a metre thick and unbelievably sickly sweet. I struggled to find a decent slice of actual cake and ended up in some health food place, that didn't seem to have succumbed to the lunacy, eating low sugar carrot cake that was a bit too carrot and not enough cake.
