I’m not a fan of shopping malls, but today’s inclement weather has driven me indoors. Spying a cafe not too far from but on the same floor as the cinema, I decide to take my chances with the fruit and plain scones I see sitting on top of the counter. I order one fruit scone as they are fairly big and it arrives sliced open like a bread roll. I ask for a second portion of jam, which the waitress happily dispenses, but wonder why I am even bothering with the calories, as it’s tasteless and dry, and the few random sultanas imbedded in the dry bread like texture only give it a hint of flavour. The light and airy cream doesn’t help either.
Tea: A small variety of loose-leaf teas in a small pot.
Overall: Steer clear and pop in to T2 Teahouse down the hall instead.
