High tea at Tarts..




It's been a while since I've sat down with my sisters for a good old chin-wag, we're all so busy these days but sometimes you just have to make a plan and stick to it! Yesterday we caught up at Tarts Cafe in Northbridge for high tea. Such a good choice! From the moment you enter Tarts you get the feeling that owners John and Sandra Vallini run a happy ship, the 'crew' were super attentive and the food.. well you can see it went from above to below with a lot mmmming in-between the talk. Looking around the table it was interesting to see that we had all saved the mini burger for last :)


That was the savouries.. see below exactly what all those delicious delicacies were..


... and then there were the sweets, five delightful mouthfuls, if you have a big mouth like moi :) my favourite was the sweet almond meal and lavender light flaky filo parcels second on the left below, oh ok that was two mouthfuls! One of my nieces is vegetarian and Aimee is allergic to nuts, no problem with individual plates!


My inside shots of the beautifully laid table in the cellar, lovely and cool on a hot humid day, weren't so successful, had the wrong lens with me.. so might have to persuade my SIL's to accompany me on a return visit! Couldn't resist a quick snap of this adorable ornate bench in the gardens for Malyss in Nice and VP in Livorno.. Hope that you're having a fab weekend, take care and stay safe..

  2. That really is a whole meal in and of itself. There are places here that serve high tea, but I've never tried it.

  4. It looks so very elegant, Grace! I always think of high tea as the British style with cucumber sandwiches , etc. Yours looks better!

  5. "Tarts for High Tea"? Are you just daring me to make the obvious joke on this day of all days?! (March 8, International Women's Day) Well I'm not taking the bait. Plus my wife is looking over my shoulder. (By the way, nice shots!)

  6. Oh lol I've just come from Aimée's blog so I'm getting a second helping! Everything looks soooooo scrumptious and that bench would be perfect for a little digestive moment!

  17. Heck, I'm pretty sweet, but not really a sweets guy. But I'd be wicked tempted here. I struggle with temptations, you know.

  18. Okay, was the mini-burger that good...or that bad, that it was the last thing to be eaten?

  24. So THAT is the famous mini-burger! Sure looks very yummy and at certain times just the size for someone not being used to the heat or eating such ready-to-go-salad 4 times in a row ;-)
