Celebrate the festive period with London's finest Winter Afternoon Tea

June 24, 2021

Executive Pastry Chef, Thomas Alphonsine, has reinvented Bafarat’s sell-out Ultimate Afternoon Tea for the festive period, bringing a touch of Christmas luxe to the best patisserie offering in London.

Experience true decadence in Soho this Christmas with Bafarat’s Winter Afternoon Tea

Soho’s award-winning Middle-Eastern artisan patisserie and coffee house has unveiled its decadent Winter Afternoon Tea, just in time for Christmas.

Sample delectable patisseries inspired by wintery woodland scenery, carefully curated by our Executive Pastry Chef Thomas Alphonsine and hand-crafted by his talented team.

A stunning array of Christmas bauble-shaped patisseries are served on a snow-frosted, winter wonderland wreath, with the choice to add a large, golden, chocolate bauble showstopper for a final opulent flourish. Smash open your Christmas Chocolate Bauble to discover the chocolate surprises inside. If you’re lucky, you might find a Bafarat Golden Coin that entitles you to a special prize, including heavenly cakes to share and vouchers for our Ultimate Afternoon Tea.

Highlights of the new festive menu include savouries like truffle croque monsieurs and tomato and mozzarella sourdough toasts, whilst the indulgent artisan baubles are innovative feats of French patisserie with flavour combinations including caramel and cinnamon, pistachio and raspberry, and vanilla, strawberry and lime.

As Chef Alphonsine says;

“Tis the season to be joyous! 2020 may be a strange and unusual time, but holding the vision to bring joy and satisfaction to customers walking through the doors, the team warmly awaits you here at Barafat”

The afternoon tea is accompanied by your choice of hot drink, Bafarat’s second speciality, with our dedication to sourcing the world’s best coffee beans for expert roasting and loving preparation by our master baristas. You’ll be spoiled for choice with our selection of beverages to compliment the festive delicacies, with our offering including Bafarat’s speciality Arabic coffee, signature blend matcha, beetroot and turmeric lattes and traditional pots of tea.  

Enjoy your festive treat whilst basking in the unique ambience of Bafarat’s Warwick Street café in the heart of Soho. With high-end pastel interiors, Bafarat provides an exquisite backdrop to celebrate the end of a year like no other.
