Ephemeris Tea Room, Marchmont Crescent

Score: 3/5

Specialises in: Flavored Tea

Price: Tea £2.45; Cappuccino £2.35; Cake £1.35

Epemeris Tea Room is a charming little establishment and well worth a visit if you’re in the area.  The selection of different teas on offer in mind-boggling, all displayed in jars covering two walls.  I found the offer of flavored tea (and coffee) particularly exciting and promptly (well, actually after a long and hard deliberation – you should see the menu!) ordered Ceylon tea with cinnamon and plum.  The cinnamon was delicious, but I’ll have to be honest, I didn’t really taste the plum.  The cakes were also tasty, though perhaps they could do with slightly more choice.

I think the only thing that really lets this place down is the feeling that you are sitting in someones living room, and not in a good way.  The kitchenette at the back is kitsch and sweet but definitely brings out the private living room vibe, and you do start to feel a little bit like you’re intruding and shouldn’t really be there.

Don’t let this put you off however, if you live in Marchmont it’s definitely worth a try.
