High Tea’s at Cafè Hemingway

“Why, sometimes I’ve believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast.”
― Lewis Carroll, Alice in Wonderland

When I was little I used to watch Alice in Wonderland over and over, and I still do watch it as #NeverGrowingUp it’s a timeless tale. I have always wanted to attend the Mad Hatters tea party even if I never admitted it, then this delightful invite arrived from Cafè Hemingway’s, my inner child was ecstatic. Alice in Wonderland High Tea finally.

Now I have always been a fan of Cafè Hemingway’s from there hidden and magical cafe to the literary dishes, its a place to get lost in for hours hidden in the hub of a busy suburb surrounded with good food and tasty cakes.

It is always a pleasant experience when walking into Cafè Hemingway’s from the friendly waitstaff to the enthusiastic management, it’s easy to see why this place is popular. But what awaited me, High Tea was beyond all expectation, the decor, attention to detail to the variety the sheer opulence, it was inevitable that I’d fall down the rabbit hole in sheer delight.

What I enjoyed most was the complementary flavours and thought out combinations, allowing for a wonderful taste sensation between textures and flavours. I personally would recommend this high tea for a day out with friends/family, kitchen teas, baby showers, hen parties, heck just because and you deserve it. It’s relaxed and a fun few hours out catching up and just taking time for you.
