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.

Salzerac Bar - the story behind it

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.

Stylish and scenic

We were greeted with a sparkling wine upon seating which was a great way to relax and gather our bearings. When High Tea was delivered my companion and I was suitably impressed.

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

Opera cake layers of almond sponge, coffee-scented buttercream and dark chocolate ganache

Toasted coconut, passionfruit and lemon curd slice

Lick your Lips - all delicious

A word about the macarons. Our samples included either a Lemon or Twinings Tea flavoured macaroon. Both were just delicious with the later displaying just the right hint of Bergamont.
