A cozy, down-to-earth tearoom in the English style, Greenwoods offers unique takes on simple fare. Everything here, from the bread used for the sandwiches to the delicious signature cheesecake is made on the premises by the friendly, efficient staff. Specials change regularly, but firm favorites are the High Tea - a selection of bite-sized sandwiches and cakes and the traditional English breakfast. Of course if you don't want to eat, you can always just lounge on the small terrace with a paper and a coffee, tea or organic juice. While Greenwoods closes early in the evening, the last few hours of the afternoon are the best time to visit, when the sun hits the terrace and the crowds of lunchtime regulars have moved on.
