Cute little looking cafe with its faux grass patch in its alfresco area by the river.
Lemon Meringue Tart ($4.50++) The tart is surprising soft and easily slices off with a fork. It tastes slightly tart and not too sweet.
Shepherd’s Pie ($11.90++) Minced Lamb in a savoury tomato based sauce with carrots, celery and onions. Topped with Mashed Potatoes. It comes with a choice of Waldorf, Potato or Green Salad. The main course also served with a drink. I could barely taste the mashed potatoes which is overwhelmed by the melted cheese. The minced lamb mixture below it tastes quite watery. The waldorf salad that served with it is quite crunchy and light.
High Tea Set with a pot of tea ($32++) The rooibos vanilla tea is served in a pot with a teabag and tastes quite thick and nice. At the top tier, it is buttery scones (Plain & Raisin), accompanied by butter & a selection of homemade Jams (strawberry, blueberry, pineapple and chocolate raspberry). The scone is very soft and buttery, topped with the various jams ( especially the pineapple jam) it tastes even better. At the second tier, it is filled with different sandwiches. Egg Mayonnaise sandwich Egg Mayonnaise in a soft brioche bun with scorched cheddar Quite cute looking and tastes quite soft and buttery. Smoked Chicken sandwich Shredded smoked chicken with espelette pepper mayonnaise on focaccia Tastes light and buttery. Smoked Salmon sandwich Smoked salmon with trio of pickled onions, gherkins & capers on multigrain bread A simple and not too salty sandwich. Cucumber sandwich Thinly sliced cucumbers & cream cheese layered on white loaf It tastes quite crunchy and refreshing. At the bottom tier, it is filled with assorted mini desserts. Vanilla Dome Vanilla mousse with Lychee jelly The jelly sits on a thin layer of sponge and is very soft and smooth but I could barely taste any hint of vanilla. Nutella Tart Hazelnut-Chocolate ganache in a tart Beware of the melted chocolate which is quite sticky to eat but tastes quite chocolaty. Raspberry Cheesecake Smooth & delicate raspberry cheesecake Feel that it tastes more like a mousse cake than a cheesecake. Lemon & Blueberry Crumble Moist lemon cake with blueberries topped with crumble Tastes quite light.
Overall the food is not bad, but quite on the high side. The place is quite nice looking, but a bit hot with the spot lights shining straight down at the table. The table is also a bit small that we have a bit of problem of fitting the dishes in. Maybe the staff should have timed the serving before or let us move to a bigger table.
