Sanctuary Cafe and Restaurant

DT@The Sanctuary Cafe-Warriewood Flower Power#

I’m not sure what Flower Power Warriewood is like on the weekends, but during the week the crowds are non-existent and it’s a pleasure to potter around the plants and homewares, and to pick up herbs for the garden. This is my second visit to the Sanctuary Cafe and Restaurant in four years and things have changed – for the better.  We’re told that they bake 90 scones every three days, but I don’t think they baked today. The scones are a vast improvement on the wholemeal ones I had in 2014. They are light with a slight crispiness from the heating. The Hanks jams are a treat, and I find myself tossing up between the fig and the sour cherry. The cream is thankfully fresh but too aerated. Good to see some good quality loose-leaf teas and a proper tea cup.
