I was admiring the people next to me, their huge jug of colourful iced tea and asked what it was like. They pointed to a pot where I could taste a sample. It was Rooiboos infused with peach, not at all sugary or sweet, with a refreshing after taste.
Other teas on offer were Sahara Breeze; African rooibos blended with exotic fruits and flowers like lemon, tea tree and aniseed, rose petals and calendula flowers, Serenity; a soothing comforting blend of grapes, sage and nutmeg with rose and jasmine flowers, or Red Safari; an African blend of red fruits like rose hip and dragon-fruit along with the soft notes of figs. These truly are tasty tea temptations and something new on the coast to try.
My friend and I had a coffee being "that" time of the day a soy flat white along with finger sandwiches of egg, watercress and lettuce in the most delicious bread I had ever tasted, full of seeds including linseed and pumpkin seeds it was fresh and I could have easily eaten much more of it, even though I'm not a bread lover. We ordered 2 'petite' finger sandwiches at $3.50 or 4 fingers for $6.50.
The owner of the Silva Spoon bakes this bread along with 90% of all bakery items on display, like lemon meringue, strawberry cheesecake, muffins, scones. I wanted to try the Gyoza dumplings with the luscious sauce of chilly and ginger but unfortunately I was a tad early. They didn't start up their steamer until 12 midday, so I'll remember that for future treats.
