BreakfastwithNick BreakfastwithNick Breakfast Review: Cambridge Tea House

My wife and I have a lot of fond memories of having tea in England. We’ve traveled there multiple times for school, and highlights of the trips include tea at The Orangery in Kensington Palace, The Pump Room in Bath, or curling up in the lobby of the National Theatre.
