Brownie with crunchy nuts
Chocolate coffee cake
The sandwiches weren't anything special. They were simple fillings between slices of multigrain bread. I thought the scone was the best! It was moist inside and just enough for me to finish off. I was a little disappointed with the whipped-cream though. It was too runny and soupy. Whipped-cream has to stand on its own. Another bowl was requested later-on which was perfect, but I had already devoured my scone by then. For dessert I went for the lighter items like the éclair as well as the nutty brownie I had my eye on. It was really good!
For tea, I had the Boathouse Private Blend which was a Ceylon tea and their “secret” flavour blend with hints of almond and orange. Not sure what the “secret” part was, but obviously something that could not be shared! It was a loose-leaf tea served in a filter bag. The liquor was a lovely golden-orange colour. The fragrant was sweet and fruity. The flavour was a smooth, sweet orange without any bitter aftertaste. I drank several cups of it straight without milk or sugar. It was lovely.
As always, the dialogue around the table was the best. Put a group of women together and discussions always turn to dating horror stories and about men with strange quirks and habits. Always a hoot! It was a perfect Sunday to head out of town for good conversation and food. I would definitely venture back out this way in the future.
