You may not notice Caffe Contessa, especially if you are making a beeline for The Tea Salon, which incidentally is only a hop, step and a jump away on the same floor. The cafe offers High Teas among other things as well as date scones. When I ask how they are served, I am told with butter and jam – cream one dollar extra. I was already committed to the date scones, but little did I know that they were served toasted. Not a fan of toasted scones, it’s hard to get past the sweetness of the dates, the inferior quality jam and the can cream all together. It’s a pleasant corner in Westfield for a cuppa nonetheless.
Tea: A small selection of Tea Drop pyramid bag teas served in a small pot.
Overall: Visit if you like toasted scones.
