Our Young Lady About Town Annette Kellow finds that the perfect biscuits make for the ultimate teatime treat...

Drinking tea and eating biscuits is a treat at anytime of the day. For those with an innate sense of ceremony it's a perfect diversion, which harks back to the early 18th century. So imagine my delight when I discovered a unique biscuit shop with a modern twist who know how to execute this quintessential English past time; Biscuiteers on Kensington Park Road.

From the outside it looks like a quaint picture of vintage elegance, their windows displaying intricately iced biscuits (my mouth instantly started watering) and inside there were more delights of biscuit collections, an icing school, cafe and bespoke service.


Although Biscuiteers is based on old-fashioned techniques and traditional hand baking, they keep up with current culture by collaborating with brands such as Mulberry, Boden, Burberry, Harvey Nichols and Fortnum's and Mason.

After taking a rather long time to decide which biscuits took my fancy (I admit I wanted to eat them all) I decided on pink cups and promptly ordered the biggest pot of tea ever!


My friend and I decided to sit on the tables outside and admire the Notting Hill view whilst I was delighted to find that they are doggy friendly (always a winner in my book). They kindly treated my Yorkshire terrier, Dorothy, to some homemade biscuits that they assured me are made of natural ingredients and people can eat them too.
I decided to let Dorothy have a go and she quickly wolfed them all down leaving none for me!

After our tea and a long chinwag I decided to purchase some biscuits to take home. I particularly loved the dad's fry up tin and the queen's 90th collection, which I scooped up as presents. I also bought some Beatrix Potter limited edition rabbits as another present... to myself!


The lovely shop assistant told me all about their icing school which is currently available for adults and children but apparently adults turn into children when they attend! She also informed me that brides can design their own flavoured biscuits for their wedding and they make cocktail toppers, cupcakes and macarons. As I left happily clutching my bag en route home two roads away, all I could think was how am I going to walk past without buying more? #biscuitaddict
