I love tea, go though several cups of tea a day! In fact, this week has turned out to have a somewhat bumpy start because of my love for tea… Well, let me explain, on Sunday we were invited for high tea at a friends place, I drank one too many cups of her well brewed tea and was up all hours of the night and faced Monday very tired.
Today, is another day. In fact, I am all set to tell you about my stop at the Keko Tea Room, a place I had passed by on several occasions and it beckoned me to come in.
The right occasion struck on Administrative Professionals Week, when I had to find a place to take my lovely assistant out. I went with her and our friend Ken, who, seems to have been very sick lately, so I am glad that I got a chance to get out and sneak a pleasant lunch. Ken even amused us by sitting and posing on the chair we had labelled the throne.
Keko it turns out was as much of a coffee place as it was a tea place, in fact, we were actually served our tea in white lavazza cups. The menu had a interesting selection of sandwiches, crepes and breakfast items. Yes, they serve afternoon tea and all day breakfast.
With a respectable selection of teas, I got the spice tea and Ken the Earl Grey. I hope you like the teapots, because I was so facinated by them, I have ordered one for the house.
The savory crepes were made with wholewheat batter, which were still crisp with a nice grainy bite. I had a bacon, egg and cheese crepe.
Ken had the french toast and loved the treat. He passed up dessert, so it was Richarleene and me left to share the delectable Fruiti Di Bosco. Another, wonderful place that has been added to our place of pick me ups and great food.
