The Verdict

Taking pride of place on an elevated corner site in Royal Oak, Five Elements Café Bistro is a great spot to watch the world go by while enjoying an elevated menu boasting original fare that punches well above its weight. Now open for evening service offering tapas and hearty main dishes—the slow-braised lamb shoulder is particularly good—bring some mates and order a few dishes to share.

The high tea deserves a special mention here—it includes delicately flavoured scones (savoury AND sweet)—a trio of gloriously fluffy finger sandwiches, thick with yummy fillings—and beautifully crafted cakes and other treats. Add to that a selection of Dilmah's finest teas and optional bubbles, and you're in absolute high tea heaven. This spot is just what Royal Oak has been waiting for.
