Afternoon Tea at Marks and Spencer

Afternoon tea is a British Institution much like Marks and Sparks. My wife and I often go to M&S at Metro Center for a tasty afternoon tea when out shopping and the good thing is that it is often on promotion!

It comes with a choice of sandwiches (we usually pick egg or blt), a pair of scones (Devon, cheese or fruit), more than enough proper clotted cream, a little jar of strawberry jam, and occasionally a strawberry tart. The food is presented on a three tier stand which is atypical of afternoon tea.  
 
The scones and sandwiches are rather good and the tea, M&S’s own Gold Blend, is nice, strong and malty, and goes well with the sandwiches and scones. 
 
I like M&S’s cafés – they are clean and bright with friendly and cheerful staff. It is always good quality and value for money too.
