run by Georgina Worthington and her team of bright, young things, also doubles as a gallery/shop selling a range of kitchen related goods, including Staffordshire pottery cow milk jugs, brightly coloured teapots, and designer aprons.

It is the cakes, however, which will make you come back time and again, either to eat in or take away to enjoy at home.

Interior of High Tea of Highgate
Refreshingly, there is not a cup cake in sight, just great, generous slices of sponge and fruit cake baked on the premises every day. As well as those already mentioned, regulars are chocolate orange, coffee and carrot cakes.

By way of accompaniment you can choose from 16 varieties of tea, three green teas and four herbal teas, hot chocolate with or without marshmallows, three types of coffee and Luscombe organic soft drinks such as blueberry and cranberry crush and elderflower bubbly.

available, and if you would rather have something savoury, High Tea of Highgate offers savoury tarts in a couple of varieties, served with a small side salad.

The tea room itself is bright and airy and there are tables and chairs in the small 'gallery' area as well as in the tiny garden at the back, and the staff are very friendly and welcoming.

Located on Highgate High Street, High Tea of Highgate is about 15 minutes' walk from either Highgate or Archway underground stations, both of which are on the Northern Line.
