Hot Beverage Week 2018: And the winner is…

There was an exciting finish to this year’s Hot Beverage Week. With only 2 days to go, Amsterdam Tea Room and Bar was neck and neck with Forth Café with just under a dozen votes difference between them, flipping back and- ahem- forth throughout the week.

And congratulations to the rest of us for getting to sip our way through a delicious week.
