We stumbled upon this place by chance. And what a cute little place this was.
The range of teas were excellent, the food, although was very tasty, took ages to be served. Perhaps this area can be addressed by them.
The funky library is also an added gem to this cool place.

If you like tea you will love the T-bar. I love the rose vanilla tea here. Wish it was open late night too!!. Shuts at 8. The crepe's were also of good standard. The 'pol pani' ones were nice. Wish they had a selection of cakes/ muffins etc to go with the tea. An outdoor sitting area would also have been nice!

We were only after a light snack so we found this place. Huge selection of tea that were delicious-even told us how long each tea should be brewed for. About AUD$2-4 tea

We walked past this quaint cafe and were persuaded by a service personnel to check it out. We relented not just because it was past lunchtime, but we were also curious about the selection of Dilmah tea available.
I was immediately taken in by the ambience of the cafe. Although it was somewhat narrow inside, this cafe made full use of the space by lining up its tables at the center, with retail shelves on one side of the wall and the service counter on the other side. Great photo opportunities are available for photo enthusiasts. We were served a welcome drink as soon as we were seated. This changes quite often, we were told. The day we were there, it was a mixture of two teas. This was served in a shot glass with a slice of apple as garnish, it was refreshing after a day of walking outside.
My partner and I ordered the roast chicken crepe and never regretted our choice. Generous helpings of chicken were found between the crepe, with the right amount of sauce to ensure it does not drip when you lift a piece of crepe into your mouth. We also tried the rainbow cupcake, which was heavenly after being warmed up. Moist inside with a dollop of icing that did not taste too sweet, it was perfection.
The service accorded to us by the service staff was warm and welcoming, and so, complimented the food and drinks appropriately. Well done!
