Iced tea and the T2 QVB Brew Bar. It’s fun! You can choose iced tea or hot, and they make them, and bring them out to you! Yay!

I like C’est Bon! A late afternoon found me meandering down Darling Street with a friend, unable to find a café that hadn’t just closed (4pm on a Saturday… don’t bother!) Luckily, we tried C’est Bon and they happily furnished us with tea and coffee.
Try their Darjeeling. It was wonderful and I have a sneaking suspicion that it might be one of my favourite teas. It was a generous serve for a good price. There was a range of cakes, but as I was heading out for dinner I didn’t indulge. They looked pretty good.
I might be back – though I think Little Darling Diner is still my favourite, due to how cute the interior is!
The Tea Salon is situated on level 4 in Westfield Sydney. The Queen Mary tea, a blend of Darjeeling and Ceylon teas, was a wonderful tea with and without milk.
Here are three types of scones – rose, orange and date, and another type I can’t recall. The rose scone was absolutely amazing. It had a delicate rose flavour. There wasn’t enough cream for my tastes! I love cream.
It looks like plenty – but not an overload. I thought it would be an easy task to get through this lot.
Here’s the smoked salmon sandwich. Yum!
Here is my lovely rose scone. I shared it, although I didn’t really want to! Wonderful.
The gluten-free cupcake was a little dry, although the passionfruit flavour came through nicely.
The fairy floss was nice – the custard was so sweet it was sickly to eat.
I am not a fan of lavender flavour. Unluckily for me, this was the flavour of macaron that day. The ganache and the macaron itself, though, made up for the flavour. It was a lovely macaron.
All up, the Tea Salon is a lovely place to visit for afternoon tea. Even though it is in the middle of a mall, it was quiet and still felt a little private. I can’t wait to try more Sydney locations for high tea!
Spending time with friends is pleasant; chatting over a cup of tea is even better. Little Darling Diner is the best place to do so! Their prices are reasonable, the English Breakfast was lovely.
These three desserts are; chocolate mousse/meringue/strawberries, deconstructed orange cheesecake, and crème brûlée. All three were lovely. The lime crème brûlée was creamy and had a lovely crunchy top that cracked perfectly under my spoon. The chocolate mousse was dense and rich, the meringues soft and the strawberries lent an acidity that stopped the dish from being overwhelmingly sweet. The cheesecake was the winner out of all three desserts, with a delicate and dark taste of orange coming through the cheese.
Little Darling Diner is the perfect place to catch up with friends. The decor is French inspired, delicate and opulent. Highly recommended!
Tutti Fruitti had the most gorgeous garden setting, with tables set up, surrounded by rose bushes and, sadly, flies. I ended up with two in my tea.Luckily there was enough tea left in my pot for another cup! The scones were a little flat, but the house made Tutti Fruitti jam was perfect. If they had proper whipped cream, it would have been even better! Cream in a can is not appropriate for a cream tea.
