Afternoon Tea at Cafe Rouge
The tea selection is basic with English breakfast. Earl grey. Mint. Camomile or rooibos tea to choose from. If you don't fancy tea you can choose a coffee or hot chocolate. We chose a mocha which tasted like a regular coffee. My guess is that the staff got our hot drink order wrong.
Our hot drink arrived well before our food. Hot drinks were not unlimited. So we were a little parched half way through our cakes.
Service wasn't good if I'm honest. Thankfully though, the croques were delicious. Croques are toasties. Or toasted sandwiches. There is only one vegetarian option on the afternoon tea menu. I'm glad we enjoyed the taste of the vegetarian crouques. As we're vegetarian.
The vegetarian croque at Cafe Rouge contains portobello mushrooms. Baby spinach. Goats cheese and truffle oil. The portobello mushrooms were very meaty. The cheese and truffle oil was creamy and flavoursome. As a vegetarian I highly recommend the croques at Cafe Rouge and would pop in for this toasted sandwich again.
|Afternoon Tea - Scone. Strawberries and cream|
Next was the scone. Strangely there was only one scone on our trolley. Considering their were two of us, I found this odd. The scone was a fruit variety. It was was delicious and warm. Cream was provided, along with some strawberries. The cream was just okay. Not the best cream I've enjoyed.
Our cake selection was a lemon and poppy seed slice. Red velvet chocolate. Shortcake slice and carrot cake topped with granola. My favourite dessert during Cafe Rouge afternoon tea was a yummy pot of chocolate mousse.
The afternoon tea trolly was very dusty and presentation was non existent. All in all there were only a few positives about afternoon tea at Cafe Rouge.
