There aren’t many greater pleasures in life than a really good high tea. Finger sandwiches, scones with jam and cream and drool worthy petit fours just make life seem better, don’t you think? But what’s a vegan to do when they want to indulge in this delicious tradition? With butter, milk and cream every which way you look, high tea is out of the questions for the vegans of Perth—and the dairy intolerant for that matter. Or is it?
The generous spread includes vegan friendly versions of all your high tea faves like dainty caramelised onion and capsicum sandwiches, cashew raspberry cheesecake and of course...scones!
You’ll fall in love with the bruschetta topped with avocado, carrot hummus and a moreish sweet pea puree, and the fresh rainbow spring rolls will go down a treat. But don’t fill up too early, because sweets is where things really sparkle!
With raw treats dancing between fruit kebabs and coconut sugar slice, you’ll need serious willpower to stop yourself scraping the plate clean after trying some of the rich chocolate hazelnut slice.
And of course what’s a high tea without scones with jam and cream? Possibly the most mind blowing item on offer, the vegan scones are packed with juicy cranberries and lathered with fluffy coconut cream and a sweet berry jam.
Accompanied by bottomless cups of tea—green sencha, Indian chai (with soy) and their refreshing homemade lemongrass and ginger iced tea—you will feel just like the queen that you are.
All this while you slowly revolve a full 360 degrees so you can take in panoramic views of our beautiful city. There’s nothing like a sugar high 33 stories up, amiright?
