Low tea being what we now call High tea is truly a fantastic way to lay back and spend your weekend whether it be on a sunny afternoon or a wintery rainy afternoon, it brightens up the best of both worlds.
I have had the pleasure of once again enjoying this part of the English life with my family today at Chimmy's located on Bridge road Richmond. Would you believe that for only $47.50 per person you are overwhelmed with a selection of mixed quiches along with spinach and fetta and sausage rolls, not only to follow by platters of fine cakes and fresh scones with jam and cream. For 4 people we received 1 tower of savouries and 3 towers of cakes with 2 plates of scones. It could feed at least 6-8 people if you had eaten lunch already.
Chimmy's on a Saturday afternoon has a fantastic vibe as others dine around you indulging amongst there own high tea, along with the waiters being attentive and friendly, your afternoon is truly enjoyed. The best bit is that if you can't eat it all they are more than happy to box anything up for you so you can continue to enjoy back at home for dinner or perhaps breakfast the following day if you wish.
Although bookings are essential there are various High teas to choose from ranging between $24.50 to $47.50. I highly recommend to do this one afternoon and unwind with friends or family. It's a great way to have a gathering and is enjoyed by all. I know I will be returning with friends for years to follow.
