The Seafront Tea Rooms

Although my book reviews on this blog would normally be about cookery books, I just couldn’t resist including a review on this beautiful story.

The Seafront Tea Rooms is written by Vanessa Green and is a lovely story about a journalist who is on a mission to find Britains best tea rooms.

Charlotte (the journalist) comes across the ‘Seafront Tea Rooms’ in Scarborough and knows it is a very special tea room that would be great for her article. But (Kathryn) a single mother who uses the tea rooms as her sanctuary talks her out of including it in her article by saying she will join her on her search. Another regular from the Seafront Tea Room (Serephine) is a French au pair with a love of pastry making.

All three travel around the country to find other tea rooms. But of course this is a book of fiction and fun so the story soon takes on, romance, tea and of course cake and the tale of the true friendship.

If you didn’t fancy a piece of cake before you read this book you will definitely fancy one when you have finished it. Enjoy…

I am a mum and wife to a lovely caring family. I’ve suffered with chronic back pain for over 30 years and started writing my first blog in 2007 which covered back and chronic pain. Since then I have written many more blogs for myself and customers. I find it takes me away from my pain to another place. I love it so much I think it should be part of a recovery process after illness or surgery. I hope you enjoy reading through my blogs.

      1. They were trying out recipes for diabetics, and they brought us 4 different cupcakes to try. The sponge was too dry in them although the toppings and fillings were delicious. That’s the trouble with trying to make sponges with sweetener instead of sugar, I’m told.


      2. Oh definitely gilly, there is nothing like the taste of proper sponge made with all the original ingredients – I still love licking the spoon after I have put it in the cake tin. 🙂
