The Tea Room, CBD

The Tea Room, High Tea, QVB, Sydney Eats

When it comes to high tea in Sydney, you can’t go past the high tea experience at The Tea Room in QVB. Tucked away in the top corner of the QVB building, it’s a fancy setting complete with pretty floral tableware, nice comfy cushioned chairs and excellent service.

The regular high tea will set you back $55 per person, and for that price you’ll get plenty of food. Two three tiered stands of it in fact!

We’re impressed with the savoury starters, of which we get a plate each, a selection of three small bites. Our favourite is the spinach and gruyère cheese pastry.

Scones are very substantial in size. They are nice and moist and go well with the accompanying jam and cream.

Sandwiches are not so exciting, the selection including your classic fillings like chicken, ham and cheese.

We find the desserts to be a tad on the sweet side, especially the blueberry cake.  The caramel mousse a little burnt tasting.

The lemon meringue tart is our favourite though, the tartness of the lemon cutting through the sweet.

Qube on Bay, Ultimo

One of my favourite dessert flavours is black sesame, so when I found out Qube on Bay was bringing back their Black Sesame French toast, I was super keen to try.

The location, just a short walk across from Broadway shopping centre, has left me wishing that it had opened just a couple of years earlier when I was still in uni. I’m guessing it probably gets quite busy during the uni semester, but on Saturday afternoon it’s not nearly as packed as I had imagined.

Zeus Street Greek, Gladesville

It’s not often that I have Greek food, so when the team at Zeus Street Greek invited me to try their menu, I was only too happy to check it out!

There’s multiple locations, but the Gladesville branch is convenient, and nice an spacious too which made it perfect for a post-work dinner.

The Zeus for two is the perfect answer to those unsure of what to order, a $49 feast which is made up your choice of meat from the spit, a sharing plate (side) & a salad with pilaf, tzatziki & pita bread.

The Local Trade, Kellyville, Cafe, Sydney Eats, Brunch

It’s great to see how far the cafe scene in the Hills grown in the past couple of years, and whilst there’s plenty of new cafes to try, one that remains a local favourite is The Local Trade. It’s location next to the playground makes it a popular spot for family’s and it’s buzzing when we pop in for a quick brunch on Sunday morning.
