Lauren came to visit Thali and I a month ago or so. We decided that having a visitor was occasion enough to try out the tea rooms. Originally we were going to go to passionflower, but they ended up being closed. Half our luck really.
I may or may not have ordered two pieces of cake, they cost roughly the same int he end as Lauren and Thali's crepes though. I got a triple chocolate cheese cake and shared the lemon tart with the others. Actually we waited for maybe almsot an hour until we asked the waitress where our food was- she had forgotten to put in our order!
When we asked the waitress she was incredibly kind! She'd forgotten to put our order in, and to make up for it offered us a free drink. We had already had a pot of tea each though. I was however tempted by the milkshake on someone elses table and Thali got another pot of tea. It was a special occasion after all. Of a fashion anyway.
Everything was delicious. I just, had too much! The milkshake was the last straw, my stomach told me it was time to take a nap. We had to go on to the museum however. Alas, no nap.
I liked the tea rooms so much, I have resolved to take everyone there. Even if it's just because I want cake. My friend Hiro told me that one of his Japanese friends was coming to Melbourne to study English. We're going to take her sometime.
There's always time for cake, right?
