A time warp is the only way to describe Annakarena
Time Warp inc.
When going for a lovely hot cup of Earl Grey tea outside of home, you want to pick the best place. You want something homely and comfortable. When I went to Annakarena, it was homely and comfortable, but it also made me feel like I was part of the royal family. Stepping into the shop wasn't like stepping into the corner fish and chip shop, it was like stepping into the most high restaurant there has ever been.
The chairs are beautiful. There are 2 types of chairs. One is fit for a king and queen - a beautiful golden brown chair with silk parts and a beautiful side finish. The second is a beautiful white silk chair that faces another (which is perfect for a one-on-one date or outing)
Annakarena is a beautiful place to go for a date or a long needed girls' time. It has the most beautiful range of pastries, and make a simple sausage roll go gourmet. Two of the best sausage rolls are the German sausage and the European sausage roll. They both are filled with a beautiful chorizo sausage, one mild and one spicy.
On arrival I can guarantee that jaw dropping will happen. They have a long, traditional fridge full of the most beautiful cakes and pastries (and even hot meals). They also have loads of gluten free food. The cake cost $9.00, but it could feed a horde of hungry people; it is the size of the plate. They also have cheese cake and a naughty Ferrero Rocher sponge cake (which is to die for by the way).
I understand that staff is always important. Here they are lovely and nothing is a problem for them. The owners are very sweet. You can ask them about anything and everything, and they are also open to suggestions, not that they need any.
