Afternoon Tease review

Friday is bacon bap day – Everybody knows in Cambridge….Friday is bacon bap day at The Afternoon Tease for breakfast. It’s funny how certain things create a stir. Well, Jo’s bacon baps certainly have since the short time she started this tradition.

Bacon bap Friday at Afternoon Tease

Jo Kruczynska was bitten by the coffee culture bug in Australia when she travelled around the globe. On her return, she decided to open a cafe. After a few years in London where she ‘soaked up’ a lot of inspiration from her local cafe, she decided to move back to the town where she grew up. Over the last few years, she created a big name with her homemade cake. The Guinness cake is one of her trademarks. It took her a long time to find the right place to make her dream come true. King Street in the historic heart of Cambridge became home for her cafe The Afternoon Tease.

Home made cakes at Afternoon Tease

You can expect her daily changing menu with some of her specials always available such as Dovecote Bakery crumpets, homemade granola and gluten-free frangipanes. The highlights are definitely her homemade cakes and delicious sandwiches, but her homemade soup is one not to be missed too. Keep an eye out for her dahl. I’ve been told it’s really good!

So I decided to go for a fusion breakfast this morning. A hearty bacon bap and her famous Masala Chai Latte. Cambridge has been raving about this Masala Chai latte so I was keen to taste her mix of spices.  I’m all set now to show my guests Cambridge through the eyes of a foodie. I have to come back soon to check out her brunch style food on a Saturday!

Why go?

Slightly off the beaten track so you will not bump into crowds of tourists. Great food and a very good cuppa!

Bacon bap £ 4.00

Masala Chai latte £ 2.60

p.s. I have fallen in love with the Masala Chai Latte. I had 2 this morning and the flavour of the spices are still fresh in my memory. Can’t wait to get my next fix.
