Usually I’m the one dragging E out to eat. She’d prefer to stay home and have me cook for her. Lucky for some, but I love having someone else cook for me, without the mess to clean up. This sunny afternoon my lady suggested afternoon tea, and we couldn’t pass up a second visit to The Sassy Cookie.
Tucked away in Victoria Park suburbia the super sweet dessert haven is tea time luxury. The staff dress in 1950’s glamour garb and the cake display is always full of darling treats.
We managed to score a seat outside in the sunshine on this occasion. E stuck to her afternoon tea usual, scones with jam and cream. The scones were dotted with dates, adding a surprising flavour and texture to the traditional eat. My eyes went straight to the Key Lime Tart. On my previous visit to the cute little bakery I tried and loved the Lemon Tart, but I’ll have to say the Key Lime was even better. The tart wasn’t overly zingy, and had the perfect balance of sweetness. I’m definitely a citrus dessert fan.
If you’re looking for a refreshing cold drink instead of the usual tea or coffee, SC’s smoothie menu, with or without moo (milk) is very extensive and the Raspberry and Blueberry option was divine.
The Sassy Cookie also has a fabulous high tea menu as well as lunchtime favourites, so they’ve got you covered for pretty much anytime of the day.
What would you choose, a scone or a citrus tart, or something completely different?
