Fodor's Expert Review Babington's Tea Rooms
At the left foot of the Spanish Steps is Babington's Tea Rooms, which has catered to the refined tea and scone cravings of travelers since opening in 1893. The blends are carefully designed and can be brought to the homey tables in this historic restaurant alongside a tower of tiny sandwiches or as an accompaniment to risotto and fully loaded salads. But remember that this is not a budgeteer's cup of tea. Linger over a homemade cake and ask the server about the history of the tearooms, which are still family-run 125 years later.
