Some people advise that the healthiest way of eating is to breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince and dine like a pauper.
That’s all very well except for the fact that it misses out the most enjoyable meal of the day: afternoon tea.
Take tea like an empress with today’s Big Deal on afternoon tea with a glass of bubbly at La Bonne Auberge on West Nile Street.
La Bonne Auberge opened back in 1975. Thirty-eight years later, it is still going strong and, after a six figure facelift last year, it looks as elegant as ever.
Available seven days a week from noon to 4pm, option one of this deal is for a sumptuous afternoon tea for one person at La Bonne Auberge.
The mouth-watering afternoon tea consists of an assortment of freshly prepared finger sandwiches, a fruit scone with clotted cream and strawberry jam, plus a selection of gourmet petit pastries.
A glass of fizz is included in the deal. Tea is pretty much a miracle drink but add a glass of bubbles into the occasion and the party steps up to a whole new level.
Fittingly for a venue with an AA rosette, La Bonne Auberge offers a wide variety of top quality Suki teas.
From bright, light and crisp breakfast tea to refreshing roiboos and exotic green tea via fragrant chamomile and tingly whole peppermint, there is a whole world of flavours in every pot at La Bonne Auberge.
Option 1 includes a choice of Suki speciality tea for you to treat your taste buds to.
Ladies who lunch
Option two of today’s Big Deal is for a Ladies Who Lunch charity event on Sunday 3rd November.
As well as afternoon tea and a glass of bubbly, the event includes a gift for each guest on arrival plus a make-up demo from the hip San Francisco make-up company Benefit.
This offer would be brilliant for a catch-up with a friend; a surprise outing for a relative or a gift. You could also use it as a little pick-me-up during a marathon shopping expedition.
La Bonne Auberge has collected lots of happy reviews over the years. On 5pm Dining, it’s rated 4/5 by customers. This is what a recent diner had to say:
‘Attended with friends prior to show at Pavilion Theatre nearby. An inspired choice, first time there but certainly not last.’ Rating 5/5
