It's been a long time since I've been to afternoon tea, and even longer since I blogged about it, so I was pleasantly surprised when I found that the Majestic Cafe in Porto, Portugal served afternoon tea.
I had wanted to visit this cafe for its historic significance and beautiful ambiance, and it was a bonus that I could also enjoy afternoon tea.
The cafe is a bustling place with a constant line out the door. When we arrived on a weekday afternoon, there were about five people in front on us. We were seated within ten minutes at a lovely table along the wall with a perfect view of the crowd.
Sitting down gave me a chance to enjoy the splendor of the Majestic close up, instead of hurrying in for a photo.
My tea set was very traditional and all branded cutlery from the Majestic. My tea was served on a traditional 3-tired tray.
