Tea for two


Pie and mash fans, hold on to your hats! Is Benidorm seeing a new market craze for cucumber sandwiches and fondant fancies?

There’s no question that Benidorm is famous for its great value big portions, and belly-busting all day breakfasts – but a new trend of Afternoon Tea seems to be taking the town by storm and residents and tourists alike are loving it.

Stars Lounge Bar on Calle Londres is a hidden gem – but with the help of social media and oodles of elated customers, the word is spreading……fast.

Their menu is varied and they pride themselves on there not being ‘a fryer in sight’, and one of their best sellers is shaping up to be their spectacular afternoon tea. Pre booking is a must but well worth the phone call as you’re served a smorgasbord of delicious sandwiches, scones, cakes and sweet and savoury nibbles. And as if that wasn’t reason enough to indulge – they also include a glass of fizz! Bon Appétit!

But the idea doesn’t limit itself to one venue – Simply Delicious, The Don Pancho Hotel, Lil’s Lounge in Albir and a plethora of others are offering culinary delights in the shape of an afternoon tea.

They may not be light on the hips (calories don’t count over here, do they?) but the great news is that it’s light on the wallet – in true Benidorm style these delicious teas are tremendous value for money and are guaranteed to leave you feeling satisfied!

So is it a fond farewell to fry ups, and should we warn The Ivy that Benidorm is taking over?
