The past few months, I've had the pleasure of trying out the Victoria Room Tea Salon several times, including the vintage fashion high tea as part of Sydney International Food Festival.
It's super dark in the Darlinghurst Victoria Room, it feels like night time until you finish, walk out and stumble into the bright sunlight with squinty eyes trying to adjust back to daylight
Fruit tarts, lavender shortbread, rose jelly and cupcakes
Delicious fruit tarts - must be classified as healthy if it contains fruit!
Vintage high tea - which was basically their regular offering with a class of champers and you could go for a wander at their vintage market stall setup inside
Glorious scones - I always find that there's never enough jam and cream at most places, you feel like you have to ration it (probably because I slather it on like no tomorrow :P )
The champagne went down a treat
A couple of weeks later, I went to the Victoria Room tea salon at Westfield with my mum for an afternoon snack:
I spied the scone menu and was too full on the day, but made a mental note to come back for the scones
Vanilla and raspberry tart - so yummy!
I love this teapot - it's so pretty!
Elderflower and lemon sparkle
Zucchini and haloumi fritters with avocado salsa and fresh spring salad - this was delish!
High tea for one with a lavender scone - super generous with the sandwiches
Scone outing with the lovely food blogger ladies:
Sweet scones - White chocolate and cranberry; lemon, pistachio & currant; lavender
I wanted something a bit more substantial so I got the cheddar and thyme scone with smoked atlantic salmon , creme fraiche and dill, this was very good. A nice brunch dish.
The savoury scones - Pumpkin & ginger; Cheddar & thyme
It was Zumboron day that day, and the lovely Laura was kind enough to share her haul of macarons - as always, there were some interesting flavours (ramen, anyone!?)
