saturday 5th may 2012 – an afternoon spent with friends at the plank kitchen and bar courtesy of discount vouchers that we had purchased months before. the ‘high tea for 2 people’ deal was advertised for $36 (and valued at $92). [fyi, discount voucher sites seem to be all the rage at the moment!]
upon arrival we were given a glass of sparkling wine (which was unlimited for the afternoon).
we started with the savouries – there were mini quiches and there were 3 types of ribbon sandwiches (crustless sandwiches) – ham, cheese and tomato; cucumber, cheese and mayonnaise and salmon and tomato.
saving the best til last – the sweets! profiteroles, scones (with jam and cream) and chocolate truffles were on the menu. coffee and tea was also unlimited for the afternoon.
it was a pleasant afternoon, the food was delicious and the service was good.
plank kitchen and bar is located at the comfort inn haven marina (6-10 adelphi terrace, glenelg) and overlooks the patawalonga river and the holdfast shores marina.
“there are few hours in life more agreeable than the hour dedicated to the ceremony known as afternoon tea.” ~ henry james, the portrait of a lady
