High tea date: 54 on Bath

I finally had a chance to go for high tea with the fam at 54 on Bath. I have been trying to book a high tea afternoon at this place for a while after reading blog after blog rave about it. We set out for an afternoon to stuff our tummies silly on my mother’s birthday. The lady of the day was dressed to the nines as usual

I was unfortunately in jeans and converse sneakers as I had spent the majority of my day moving out of home.

The venue is beautiful. And opulent. Very high tea-ish darling 🙂 And  those couches!

Food: there are scones then there are SCONES. 54 on Bath has SCONES (I forgot to take a photo, forgive me!).

Yoh,yoh,yoh.

You know that silence that follows when everyone is enjoying their food? That’s the silence that followed when we started eating the scones. So yummy.

Unfortunately that is all my mother and brother enjoyed 😦 there were of course a large variety of treats but it wasn’t to their liking – everything was apparently too sweet. Sigh. And unfortunately, we arrived on a day wherethe high tea was served with mainly sweet treats (with a single savoury dish). So as much as I loved the pretty venue with the fancy teas and dee-lish scones, it was an average day out for my mother and brother.

Would I recommend 54 on Bath?

Hmmm, I’m not sure. I loved the food at Moemas but hated the crappy view of the parking lot. I loved the venue this time but felt slightly underwhelmed by the food :/
