Cafe Relish

DT@Cafe Relish - Richmond#2

Cafe Relish is like most of the cafes along this Richmond strip – much bigger than you think. Enter through the front door and the deli like appearance and single strip of seating down one wall is deceiving. Go through to the back, and the whole place opens up three-fold to a vast area of undercover outdoor seating. There are date, plain and blueberry and white chocolate scones available today. I decide to go left field and try the blueberry and white chocolate choice. The scone arrives already cut and coated in jam and cream. It’s been in the microwave for longer than necessary and the toppings dissolve rapidly. It’s not bad, once you get past the overheating, and not as sweet as I imagined, but I’m a plain scone kinda girl. The raspberry jam tastes better than most, but it’s hard to tell as it’s already on the scone and the cream is melting into it. The cream, whipped in a cream canister, is very light and takes no time to slide off the warm scone.
