There's Always Time For Tea

Shopping can be hard work, so a little break to refuel and relax is always welcome. Kimberley had promised to take me to a very cute French style tea room and I was not disappointed. Délices de Mademoiselle is located on Grove Street and has a lovely shabby chic interior. It may be that little bit further away from Edinburgh's main shopping areas but it was definitely worth making the trip.

Everything on the menu was very reasonably priced and there was a great selection of lunch time treats. I opted for a basic tuna sandwich, while Kim went for the fancier Croques Monsieur. I accompanied my lunch with a latte, which came with a straw. A little bizarre but it tasted good. I loved all the little touches, like the antique looking label around the water bottle and the pretty plate of french biscuits in the window.

For afters (there should always be afters) we went all blogger cliché and opted for macarons. We got to pick our choice of flavours and they even came with a side of cream and sprinkles. Sprinkles are always a winner in my book. I can't remember what flavours I opted for but they were both very tasty.

I enjoyed the atmosphere and how friendly this quite tea room was. The food was great value for money and both Kim and I left feeling refreshed and ready for shopping: round 2. More on that tomorrow...

Have you tried Délices de Mademoiselle's? Where are your favourite places to rest and refuel when shopping?
