This Irish cafe is definitely a must-go place when you’re here in Sydney. There is a wonderful Celtic shop situated right inside the cafe as you walk in filled with crochet cuties of tea pot covers (all handmade) as well as clothes, loose leaf tea packages and even gourmet jams (same ones we had in the cafe)! It’s a lovely place with such a relaxing ambience to spend with friends especially for those who love scones and high tea =)
I especially loved to the way they decorated the place with teapots and spoons (wind chimes) hanging from the ceiling as well cups decorating the walls.
There is a great selection of drinks on the menu as well as their lovely gourmet jams! Luckily we arrived around 11-12ish as we found good seats before the peak hour XD
However, we had to swiftly move inside as we didn’t want to get our beautiful food soaked from the rain! Luckily there was a spot just outside the room which was quite cosy and perfect for the two of us ~
The scones were fabulous. I especially love the fact that they were freshly made and you can definitely smell the proof of it as I walked into the cafe – very inviting and like its name, definitely cosy!
The top tier was filled with their natural double thick cream, pear & vanilla and fig & ginger gourmet jam.
The second tier was filled with desserts. I was slightly disappointed that there weren’t a variety like other high tea places. Also, was definitely disappointed by some of them as they were too sweet. But one of them were particularly nice.
The third tier was filled with ribbon sandwiches with four different flavours. Definitely gorgeous and yummy!
I ordered a lemongrass and ginger with apple iced tea as I was so intrigued by the fact they were homemade. Plus it looks so pretty! My friend ordered a creme brûlée black tea. Both of us were so astounded at the cute teapot cover (which can be sold at the Celtic shop)! There was even a pineapple version!
A wonderful place for food, drinks and to admire their decorations as well as artworks. Service was quick and friendly. This place does get quite busy during peak hours so be sure to come here early so you don’t miss out on the experience and SCONES! =)
