Easter Sunday Breakfast - By Nicola

.
We enjoyed a lovely breakfast on Easter Sunday. The Chocolate Teapot is a lovely spot to have a cup of tea or coffee and enjoy something to eat from a wonderful and varied menu. We were so temped by the lovely home made cakes that we brought some to eat there and some to take away. We enjoyed the atmosphere at the Chocolate teapot as the staff were very friendly and happy to have a little chat which we all enjoyed. The Chocolate Teapot is a family business and has a very welcoming feeling, the china is very pretty and eclectic which adds to the fun as we found piece that we knew from our childhood that Grandparents, parents and Aunts owned it was great to go back down memory lane too. As it was Easter there was a window display that adults and children would both enjoy. There was also some bunting that had been put up to celebrate St. Georges day the previous day, it was nice to see the special dates marked. The Chocolate Teapot tea room was easy to find as it was next to Esher Station. The Chocolate Teapot was the sort of tea rooms that i visited as a child but with a fresh and modern twist. We will definately be making another visit when we are back in the area.

The Chocolate Teapot was recommended by a reader of the blog in September and it’s taken me a while to go visit but I have managed it.
The cafe is tucked away next to Esher train station and if you’re driving there you’ll need to park in one of the roads coming off Station Road. We headed over there on a Sunday for an early lunch and when we got there they were still serving breakfast (lunch doesn’t start until 1pm) which suited us fine.
The tables and chairs are nice and solid, with pretty tablecloths and flowers in vases. The china is patterned and a mix of different styles and colours and we all enjoyed seeing which teapot we got given. There were shelves high up on the wall with many different teapots on and while we were eating a couple brought in an unusual teapot for the owners to add to the collection on display in the tearoom.
A feast of tea and breakfast at The Chocolate Teapot.
There were a range of different teas available and a range of different breakfasts. Dad and S went for the full English and Mum and I went for the smoked salmon and scrambled eggs. I haven’t made a note of which tea we chose but I seem to remember S and I had Lady Grey with Mum going for Darjeeling and Dad for English Breakfast. Apologies if I’m wrong.
The food was good and the tea was hot and kept on coming. We polished off all the breakfasts and then considered the cake. The Chocolate Teapot has one of my favourite things to see in any cafe or tearooms: a cake filled sideboard. It’s always a good sign as it gives you a range of cake and implies they are busy enough to get through all the cake on display without any trouble. There was a huge selection but we went for bakewell tart, chocolate fudge cake and apple cake (I think, obviously I was too excited by the eating and drinking at this cafe as I haven’t got my normal level of notes to refer to). All the cake was excellent, we were very happy.

Morning Coffee at the Chocolate Teapot next to Esher Station

This is an amazing place. I loved the outside patio area and the beautiful china crockery. The homemade cakes were wonderful - a great choice. I will go for lunch next, must tell friends.
