“Tea for Two” at Elaine’s Cuppa Cake, Edinburgh UK. We were defeated after what we thought would be a small meal. Let me tell you, it was anything but….
We never took this establishment into consideration. We would constantly walk by the window that was filled with cakes and treats, but we never decided to go in. One of Jacquie’s friends from home recommended Elaine’s Cuppa Cake for something called “Afternoon Tea.” We ventured into town to find this little hole in the wall, a quaint teashop filled with pasties and a never-ending lingering smell of all things delicious, seriously have you looked at my pictures? We quickly scurried to a table where Jacquie and I exchanged stories pretending that we haven’t been spending every waking moment together (definitely not complaining haha!) We ordered the “Tea for Two,” which blew my mind and filled my stomach with the most delicious deserts I have had in a while. “Tea for Two” consisted of a pot of tea (and yes, the tea kettle wore a knit suit of some sorts, absolutely adorable), four muffins filled with jam, two butter biscuits, four scones with jam and a dollop of thick whipped cream and two sandwiches. Jacquie ordered a chicken sandwich and I caved into the meat trail. I ordered a meatball sandwich with cheddar cheese on white bread. BEYOND DELICIOUS. The tea was fresh and delectable. I mean, look at Jacquie! So defeated at the end of this whole endeavor, but very much worth it.
