Afternoon Tea at Carpentier & Co
Update May 2019: Carpentier & Co has closed permanently
Afternoon tea in a small local cafe
I've had afternoon tea at La Suite before and I've seen it advertised elsewhere in the city, but I was so excited to find out that a cafe, not too far from us, was offering a deal for the same!
It was a done deal! My hubby, my brother-in-law, my sister-in-law and myself made a date to indulge and I'm so glad we did!
On facebook, they describe themselves as "a fresh, authentic and exciting take on the traditional Delicatessen experience" They definitely are!
They opened in September 2014 and they are definitely popular with the locals.
Carpentier is a cosy, yet funky, and it has a traditional feel to it, yet it's modern at the same time. If you're in Pinner, it's definitely worth a visit.
The owner (Harriet) is gentle, warm, welcoming, easy going and so so diligent. She understands that some vegetarians don't know about, or don't choose to exclude non-vegetarian cheese, and therefore she checks before placing an order. She is fully aware of what vegans do and don't eat and that some rule out any form of cross-contamination, whereas others only focus on the ingredients.
We felt very safe in Harriet's hands.

The afternoon tea itself was amazing! We had loads of choice. Harriet made such a lovely effort to ensure that we had a selection of sandwiches and desserts! Of course, she had more prepared, in case we wanted to indulge further.
We had a fun, yet relaxing afternoon, but it didn't stop there. A few weeks later, we were about to set off on a long journey by car, and we hadn't eaten yet, so we popped in and got some deliciously loaded baguettes to take away. After that, we returned to enjoy lunch after a long walk, and I was chuffed, as we had dessert as well!
