We were so fortunate to have Afternoon Tea at the Athenaeum without reservations. Luckily for us someone didn't show up so we were treated to a splendid afternoon. First we had pink champaigne. So lovely! Then sandwiches were delivered to our table. There were about eight different fillings. When we had finished our sandwiches, they came around with more. The service was impeccable.

Everything looks yummy! What a charm it is to read these posts. I am living vicariously through you and Dame Ruthie. I can almost taste those scones and tea. The Spode sends my heart to racing!

How impressive that they offered eight different types of sandwiches and then returned to see if you wanted more. I'll have to remember Athenaeum. It sounds like a fabulous place for Afternoon Tea. I'm glad you were able to get in.
