Christine Q invited me out for a high tea and study date at Coffee & Chocolate, how could I say no? 😉
We met last Sunday at Queens Plaza with reservations for 12pm and were told we could each select any of the hot or cold beverages.
Christine chose a Callebaut Strawberry Hot Chocolate, which was served on a stylish dish with some marshmallows.
I got a refreshing Mango, Guava & Lychee Frappe.
We chose seats by the window and didn’t have to wait long for our high tea, which came out on 2 tiers – savoury on the bottom, sweets on the top.
Pretty Christine with the goodies!
Started off with the savoury goodies – chicken salad finger sandwiches, puff pastry triangles with a meat filling, mini quiche tarts, and bread rusks with cream cheese and smoked salmon. Quality of food was good, everything was tasty but presentation could use a bit of work!
On to the sweets! Warm soft scones with jam, butter and whipped cream, chocolate cake, strawberry bar, macarons and mini muffins (blueberry and chocolate). The desserts were all average, nothing that wowed us but they were all enjoyed. The macarons were unfortunately undercooked and the turquoise one, despite the lovely colour, had no flavour.
For $12 a person, we had a good time and left with happy bellies to get some studying done 😉
I have to say, I was a little concerned after seeing so many bad reviews on Urbanspoon, but I was glad to have been overall proven wrong. Decent food with prompt service, hurray! Would I come back? Well, I would like to give their chocolates a try, so maybe if I’m ever in the area?
