To celebrate the completion of my very first contract as an Independent Consultant, we went out for high tea to Louis Sergeant. In my family we love a good high tea, which is evidenced on this very blog here. To be honest I don’t really need a special occasion to trot off to a high tea. I like feeling like an elegant lady for a small moment of time as tiny parcels of gorgeous food are placed in front of you.
Actually to be honest I am surprised I haven’t blogged more about high tea’s given I have had them regularly at these places:
Hmm, maybe I need to revisit my favs to ensure this blog is reflective of actual experience?!
So, as it was a relatively special occasion we booked in for a high tea at Louis Sergeant. If you are ever in Wellington you have to visit this place. Aside from the cakes being absolutely beautiful, they taste good – and non pastry items on the menu are also very tasty. It was full when we arrived. I have been here in the past and it was very busy then too. It is always great to see new businesses busy – and this one, deservedly so.
We opted for a Bubbly High Tea at $45 per head. It was lovely, although slightly let down by several of the savoury items being served on plastic spoons, and another in the equivalent of a plastic shot glass. Other than these things, the service was great – quick, friendly and efficient. There is a great selection of teas – which are served in lovely china. And the food? The food is just divine. It tastes wonderful, and looks pretty amazing too. Check it out – it is a lovely way to while away a leisurely afternoon.
