Drink, Shop & Do! [REVIEW - Afternoon Tea]

It was my mum's yesterday and for her birthday treat, I took her for afternoon tea at Drink, Shop & Do. Drink, Shop & Do is a cute vintage-style tea room in the King's Cross area of London where you can have cocktails, coffee or tea (Drink), browse the teacups, jewellry and sweets in the shop or even buy the furniture and crockery in the cafe itself (Shop) and play retro board games (Do).

We started with a Ruby Shoes cocktail:

And then had a pretty vintage cake platter filled with crustless sandwiches, lemon cake and chocolate brownies (my favourite):

Followed by honeycomb ice-cream:

And a little bag of sweeties to take home:

My mum and I had a cocktail afternoon tea for two (I purhcased it on Groupon for £15) which was lovely. The staff were really friendly and appropriately dressed in gorgeous vintage clothing. The cafe had a very relaxed atmosphere and felt like the kind of place where you could happily spend the whole afternoon chatting and playing a game of Scrabble. The food was so yummy and made for a lovely sweet treat. I will definitely be going back and would reccommend it to anyone looking for a lunch or drinks spot with a bit of a difference.

  24. A little boy bought a cricket by money that his par¬ents gave him.
    In the arithmetic hour, the teacher asked him:
    - Your father gave you six cents. Your mother gave you four cents. How many cents do you have now?
    - Teacher, I have a cricket now - Answered the boy
