Welcome back to Tea With Me and Friends - we hope you're well today.
Are you ready to drool over some cakes? A couple of weekends ago Sheree and I treated ourselves to some scones and cakes at The French Tarte in Surbiton, Surrey.
It was a busy Saturday afternoon, with lots of people enjoying an afternoon tea, but we managed to nab ourselves a table for two. We'd already eaten that day and so the full afternoon tea wasn't that appealing (and we hadn't booked) .....but we decided to share an cream tea and have a cake each (mainly because I couldn't decide whether I wanted a scone or cake!!).
Although it was after lunchtime there was still quite a selection to pick from in the glass fronted counter. I opted for a raspberry cake and Sheree went for a black forest gateux to enjoy with our scones......

We also picked a tea each from the extensive tea menu. The tea was served first, along with the two cakes. Now, although this was an afternoon tea adventure there was no way we were eating cakes before scones....so we waited patiently and finally these were delivered to the table....

The scones were served warm with clotted cream and strawberry preserve. They were a good size and cut easily.
Sheree wasn't so keen on her black forest gateux, which if I'm honest didn't really remind me of the traditional German treat. But my cake was lovely.....

The flavours were good and I just loved how vibrant it looked on the white china.
I'd definitely go back to The French Tarte to sample their full afternoon tea menu. The savouries that we saw on another afternoon tea stand looked amazing!
