Cousin Jacks Pasty Co. situated on the mall in Bondi Junction is no doubt a popular institution with the Eastern suburb Brits who feel homesick for traditional Cornish pasties, and in this case a Cornish Cream Tea. Delivering award-winning pasties for over a year, Cousin Jacks have only recently added the Cream Tea to their menu, and as it is co-owned by a true blue Brit from Cornwell, expect to get the taste of the county. I try both the plain and sultana scones, which are served with plenty of strawberry jam and double thick dollop cream. The scones aren’t particularly light and fluffy, but more erring to the tough side. Maybe this is how they do scones in Cornwell? What do I know? I only know that I, and my tasting companions agree, we like our scones light, fluffy and creamy.
Tea: A small selection of teabags served in a large teapot. Try the Cornish tea, Smugglers Brew – all the way from Cornwell.
Overall: Drop by for authentic Cornish fare.
