The Willows Tea Room & Cafe

DT@The Willows Tea Room - Mt Gravatt, Brisbane#3

Upon entering, The Willows Tea Room & Cafe looks like its name suggests – a tearoom! It’s quaint, feminine and what you expect a tearoom to look like. There’s a semi enclosed courtyard alongside and a cosy room out the back that’s designated especially for the prebooked High Teas. We have the attentive and friendly service all to ourselves, and relish it. After spending too much time pondering the extensive tea menu, the three of us decide on my all-time favourite brew, lime and coconut sencha. The teacups and teapots arrive to gasps of ‘oohs and ahs’ as we admire their prettiness. The scones, jam and cream appear on two-tiered serving plates, which impresses its guests again. The scones are lovely, soft and creamy, and we’re told the divine strawberry jam is made by the owners’ brother who is a chef. The only downfall is the whipped cream, which is a bit too light.

Tea: Oodles of loose-leaf teas served in pretty teapots.

Overall: A pretty tearoom for those who love their teas.
