Right next to Rome’s Spanish Steps is the Babington Tea Room. It was established in 1893 by Isabel Cargill and Anna Maria Babington. They, like many other ex-pats, came to Rome in hopes of creating a new lifestyle for themselves. Obviously, they catered to the Anglo-Saxon community. The Brits adored the place as it was practically the only place, at the time, to get a nice hot cup of tea.
