The prettiest tea shop in town
Willunga has been blessed by the arrival of Tealicious cakes, who provide an excellent range of teas and cakes, plus great barista coffee, biscuits, croissants, scones, macarons and light lunches. But the standout feature of Tealicious is their range of amazing cupcakes. This place is cupcake heaven.
The cupcakes are decorated in an array of colourful and sweet designs. The range of cupcakes changes frequently, made by the creative whimsy of the bakers and decorators. There are vegan and gluten-free versions which can all be delightfully boxed to take away. An ideal gift for that special someone (or even you!). Tealicious is the ideal place for a gathering or catch up with friends or even that gym reward.
Pretty in Pink Décor Tealicious has quite a feminine look with theme colours of pink and white. The look is gorgeous, pretty and fresh, complete with white dressers, chandeliers, fresh flowers and vintage china. Among the seating is a little white French lounge chair and Queen Anne style table for four. Tealicious takes reservations for functions and celebrations and also has an outdoor area, which is heated in winter and enclosed and protected by clear vinyl blinds.
Vintage china The folks at Tealicious know that the experience of dining is not only about the look of the food but also very much the setting and china in use. Vintage cups and saucers give that old world vintage feel to this venue, in addition to the many teapots in use, many of which are clear glass to show the infusions of tea blends.
Specialty Cakes Tealicious is also known for the very creative specialty cakes designed and made on site. The style and design of special occasion cakes is only limited by the imagination. Natasha, the proprietor and guiding light, oversees every facet of this business, with an eye for detail and the personal touch. Natasha relates she has a real passion for home baking and uses only the finest local and fresh ingredients to ensure all the cakes are of the utmost quality and taste great.
