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.

I spent $42 per person.
