babington's english tea room

on my trip to rome a few weeks ago, i was unable to visit a quaint tea room called babington's tea rooms located in the piazza di spagna right next to the spanish steps. i briefly saw the menù and knew that i had to return...even if i was by myself. i didn't have work on monday so i decided to take a bus, which took 3 hours, to the tea room where i had the "high tea special" with carly, another intern. the place was nothing less than charming and just what i expected. i think i got to the tea room at 11 AM for brunch and didn't leave until 1:30 PM. i just sat, ate, and enjoyed the english/italian atmosphere...

The High Tea Special
Small assorted sandwiches- Hot buttered crumpets with strawberry jam andcanadian maple syrup- Assorted home made cakes and pastries- Babington’s special blend tea

this was the first time i had ever tried crumpets and i think i am slightly obsessed now. they are sooo good. i wanted to become english after that experience.

You friend looks nice....in a serial killer kind of way. Don't turn your back on her. Could be the last time you have Tea and Crumpets.

I have enjoyed reading about your adventures. Brings back memories of my own Italian travels. We are working on our plans to bring Gary for a Utah trip in the fall.- Whit's Sis!

Never happy just being American... Such a shame.

You can be proud of your Italian and English as well as German heritage!
That's what being an American is, proud of your differences and similarities! We had everyone her for the 4th...your siblings went crazy for fireworks! We missed Vanessa, but Ashley was a blessing and big help in the kitchen! She even made her "famous" chocolate chip cookies! Your Mom was in charge of sparklers and kept the little ones (Emma, Austin, Gigi) safe. Ryan and your Dad enjoyed firecrackers along with Nick and Brandon. Venetia, Bill, Nina, and I just watched, but Dominic loved the fireworks too. They were cute in their Uncle Sam Hats! We'll see you soon, going to Knotts on Sunday the 27th. Remember last year, Papa had his picture taken with all of you. Today is his birthday and I am remembering him with love. We'll celebrate your Dad's birthday that day. We'll celebrate you and Austin before your return in August. Looking forward to shopping for school clothes with all of you, and having you spend the night! Blessings and love. Miss you, Gram
