Jam, Cream and Scones 30 Storeys Up
All dressed up with nowhere to go? The Four Points Sheraton Hotel, in Mary Street, Brisbane City, is calling you.
On Saturdays and Sundays The Sazerac Bar, on Level 30, hosts a delicious High Tea that makes wearing makeup worth the effort. Indeed, this is a popular venue for Hen's Parties and Birthday teas, as well as weekend shoppers and tourists in need of respite after trawling Queen Street Mall.
To be honest, the glimpses of river and parkland aren't that great currently with a number of cranes blocking the view. However, 30 storeys up does offer a different perspective of our city, and I am not ashamed to admit that I was too squeamish to sit next to the floor-to-ceiling windows.
The Savoury morsels included: Smoked salmon and dill cream cheese roulade on wholemeal Chicken and asparagus vol-au-vents Open Reuben sandwiches – fresh rye bread with pickled cabbage, corn beer, Swiss cheese and cornichon
The Sweets were also very enticing with: Freshly-baked scones with strawberry and Champagne jam, and Chantilly cream
Whiskey maple pecan tartlet with maple whip cream
Macaroons Opera cake – layers of almond sponge, coffee-scented buttercream and dark chocolate ganache
Toasted coconut, passionfruit and lemon curd slice
