A cuppa a day keeps the crunch away

The old-fashioned high tea – scones, cakes, sandwiches and, of course, a refreshing cuppa – is enjoying a credit-crunch revival and attracting a new, young clientele, it was claimed yesterday. […]

Donna Lewington, who runs the Highdown Tea Rooms in Worthing, West Sussex, said business this year was up by as much as 30% on 2007.

“We are finding that a lot of people are getting fed up with national chains of coffee houses,” she said. “They realise that a pot of tea and a scone the size of a dinner plate is better value for money than a grande latte and pre-packaged food.”

From the Guardian.
