The Delaunay55 Aldwych, London, WC2B 4BB

The Delaunay is a stunning European cafe-restaurant, with a beautiful location on the corner of historic Drury Lane and The Aldwych, the perfect destination to enjoy a Viennese inspired Afternoon Tea after exploring the sights of London. 

The Delaunay is the sister restaurant of the famous The Wolseley, from restaurateurs Chris Corbin and Jeremy King.

The elegant interiors were designed by David Collins, featuring antique mirrors, green leather banquette seating, and a gorgeous black and white marble floor.

The Delaunay's Viennese Afternoon Tea offers assorted sandwiches and savouries, poppy seed Gugelhupfs with apricot jam & whipped cream, (traditional fruit scones with strawberry jam & clotted cream are also available), a selection of classic Viennese cakes and choice of teas or coffees. All their pastries are made on the premises by head pastry chef Regis Negrier and his team, with an ever changing  selection of cakes and slices, which might include a Lemon and Pistachio Millefeuille, a Sachertorte or a Coffee and Stroh Rum Cake.
