Sunday Brunch: Podunk

Not exactly brunch, but there was tea and cakes and sandwiches and good company.  I went to see Oz, the Great and Powerful with some friends, and then hung around St Marks.  Some of us were hankering for some savory food so I took a few people to Podunk.

Podunk is a nook, so keep it small and simple with your company.
Whenever I think of Podunk I think of a grandmother's attics: full of bits and bobs, and organized clutter filled with mementos of days past.  Initially I had been worried with a party of 7 since this is a hole in the wall. Thankfully there were enough seats on a lazy Sunday afternoon.

Ladies' Luncheon
I had only visited here once in the summer, so it was nice for a change to come here when tea is meant to be hot. You ordered in the back and a waitress would bring out your order to your table. They even provide recommendations if there is too much to choose. I ordered a "ladies luncheon:" a plate full of cucumber sandwiches, cake, sprinkling of fruit and a cheesy biscuit; all paired with a pot of apricot tea.
Lolitas are always the last to leave.
The prices are pretty average, but the food is good and everything looks homemade.  It's also pretty quiet -- perfect for those lazy afternoons when all you want is a pot of tea and some company.
