The café/ restaurant area was minimally furnished. It kind of reminded me of Delifrance.
As I was here during the afternoon, I got the High Tea Set.
Everything in the tea set was ok and nothing was disgusting. But I feel I could do without the duck pate canapé, meat balls and macaron.
They were ok, but I would prefer more scones or grilled tomato salad.
The macaron was blah. It was so tiny, the shell was neither crunchy nor chewy – it was kind of too thin to feel any texture and it was ganache filled. I prefer buttercream filled macarons.
The scones fall in the “good scone” category. The cream and jam was tasty too, but I think they didn’t give me Devonshire (pronounced like there-vern-sher) cream. The consistency was too liquefied, especially upon contact with the warm scone.
The tea was unmistakably lipton.
Their high tea set changes periodically. I wouldn’t mind going back to try out a different set when they change it.
