We sometimes visit an antique shop in Birkenhead called Amorini Antiques. It's a great place to wander around room after room and pick up bargains. While GB was staying with us we went into the vintage tearooms there for the first time.
It's called 'Ain't That Swell' and it certainly was swell.
The coffee was excellent and plentiful, the home-baked cakes are large and great value for money.
I had a scone which was a perfect consistency. (Note the traditional Times2 crossword in the background - we have a target of finishing it before our coffee break is over and, as usual, we did).
They also serve soup, sandwiches, teacakes, and so on. Although we didn't have any of those, I am sure they will be just as good as the cakes.
Using a Second World War ration book as a menu is a nice touch.
The service was most pleasant and the background music lovely (and not too loud).
We shall undoubtedly return in the very near future.
