high tea for two


I must take mm to this place. Weekday high tea at a small café in a shopping mall. A little out of town but easy enough for both of us to travel to on the train.

This was a set for two, for local$99 or around $12. It’s a sort of self-service café so no service charge. Two pieces of sweet and savoury teatime food and some non-traditional teatime food. From top: banana tart, salmon on rye; strawberry custard croissant, green tea ice cream; tuna sandwich, egg mayo vol-au-vent, raisin danish. A standard hot drink also included.

Taste-wise, not the best teatime food by a long stretch. But good value and nice atmosphere in the café. Perfect for chatting. They also have a tempting selection of cakes, breads, pastries and ice cream. A discount for seniors when buying their bread too, around 40%.
