Blank Canvas

DT@Blank Canvas-Batemans Bay

If you’re wandering along the esplanade skirting Batemans Bay’s Clyde River, sitting down with a scone and a cuppa is nigh on impossible. The locals point out that the area is popular with retirees, which, I might add are ‘supposedly’ scone lovers. If this assumption is true, then why are Devonshire Teas so elusive in the area? Luckily Blank Canvas comes to the party. Their tables spill out onto the esplanade and afford a prime view of the river and passers by. The better than average scones are quite robust, but why served cut in half? Personally, I like to do my own scone dividing. The average jam and super light bland cream (that’s likely from a cream canister) don’t do it justice either. Watch out for the hungry seagulls if sitting outside, as they are happy to share your meal.

Scones: teapot3teapot3teapot3

Jam: teapot3teapot3teapothalf

Tea: A good selection of loose-leaf teas (especially herbal) served in Japanese iron teapot, that’s big on personality and lacking in tea.
