We stopped here for refreshment on a wander around the treasure house that is Montevideo, and found that even high tea can add architectural interest - the house is by the well-known Montevideo firm of Bello y Reborati, prolific builders of Art Nouveau and Art Deco town houses to the middle classes. A small family home has become a bijou tea house, with wooden tables and chairs, aproned waitresses, and English tea services.
We had scones with jam and soft cream cheese - whipped cream is not available - and a decent pot of tea. The scones were small and salty, but OK. It would have been nice to have a little more jam and cream cheese. Service was prompt and friendly, though there was some sharp-elbowed competition for our table. We ignored it, and spent a pleasant hour with the ladies (and genetlemen) who lunch. A restorative interlude.
