First time here and was mesmerised by the cozy place with vintage tea cups! The blueberry cheese scone was amazing, with the original Alice tea blend!

Fantastic little place with Alice in wonderland feeling! Outstanding tea sortiment, the homebaked scones were to die for. Served with whipped cream and homemade marmelade. They offered different cakes! Huge pieces, we shared the chocolate cake and it was so good! Really cool place close...More

Not at the outlet at west end. You will to go down a flight of steps to get to the cafe. They have another outlet in the east side but I have not been there, so not sure. Perhaps you can give them a call and check.
