Ventnor has several tearooms, though not as numerous as nearby Shanklin. At first sight, Toni’s Tea Room doesn’t appear promising, being one of several venues on the ground floor of an apartment block facing the sea. However, it is distinctly a cut above the average seaside tea room.
This is a small establishment, with a one small room and some outside tables for those wishing to take tea. The menu offers a range of hot and cold meals, with a good selection of cakes on display inside. There is a good selection of loose leaf teas, though these are unfortunately not fully detailed on the menu. Coffees and other beverages are available for the less discerning.
As my visit was less than two hours after partaking of a full English breakfast I was, alas, unable to fully sample their offerings. A large slice of mocha cake and a pot of loose-leaf green tea came to £7.30.
