Props for the effort, but the coffee at Buckingham Palace is not fit for a king…or even a commoner.
(Not So) Great Coffee At Buckingham Palace
Earlier I outlined our tour of Buckingham Palace. As you exit the place into the garden, you can stop for a coffee or tea outside at The Garden Café.
The Garden Café
10:00 – 19:00 (19:00 – 19:15 takeaway only) – July and August
10:00 – 18:00 (18:00 – 18:15 takeaway only) – September
I am going to make this simple: I loved the effort, but the coffee was not great. I ordered a flat white and found the coffee on the bitter side, even with frothed milk added (and any coffee connoisseur will know that a flat white should have steamed milk, not frothed milk…)
But it was nice to sit and sip coffee on a cool and rainy summer day overlooking the garden on the grounds of a historic palace.
I ordered a lunch box for each kid and you can see below that my daughter loved it but it brought my son to tears…being half German, he’s apparently not a fan of British sandwiches heavy on processed white bread. The box also came with some crisps (what we Yankees call chips), juice, and chocolate-covered raisins.
It was fun to drink coffee at Buckingham Palace, but I will skip it next time…
