Many thanks and thank you to Naythan for his work with Dígamextra.


English Tea Room: I don’t consider myself a “Brit Abroad”. I don’t seek out the company of other expats, I cook Spanish dishes and enjoy Spanish restaurants. But, having said that, I am like many of my fellow English in that I relish a good cup of tea which is quite hard to come by in Spain. Very pleased to report the opening of a cafe in Torrox Costa called Mum’s Tearoom. Not yet well publicised so found entirely by accident. Situated in a parade of shops opposite the big leisure centre, and quite close to Russell’s supermarket, it is a real find. Only the English could wax lyrical about loose tea leaves in a china pot, china cups, scones fresh from the oven with or without cream and jam. Took a lot of will power not to start on one of the delicious cakes on display. I hope they do well. As my wife is wont to say ”use it or lose it”. We certainly will. Colin/Torre del Mar
