Back at Jaffa for Tea!

This time last week I was just finishing up my scones and tea with my sister and friend. After almost a year, I finally returned to Jaffa to indulge in a little afternoon tea treat. As always, service and atmosphere was lovely. It was exciting to see their new, more elaborate selection of desserts that was offered compared to my last visit. There was a lot more variety and almost everything looked mouth-wateringly good. I wish I had room to try everything but it seems that my stomach isn't as good at buffets as it used to be.

Now, I must take the time to give Jaffa a little praise for service excellence. When I made the reservation, I told them that my friend was vegetarian and I wanted to ensure that she would be well provided for. As soon as she arrived, they inquired about her diet and prepared a special platter of vegetarian goodies just for her! And they were quite good. I was very pleased and impressed by this gesture and it definitely earned them some points!

In the coming semester, we'll see what my schedule looks like but I'm definitely hoping that I'll be able to find some time for a mid-week afternoon tea. It honestly was one of my favourite ways to unwind during the week and get my mind off of everything. If you haven't been to afternoon tea at Jaffa (Wednesdays) yet, make a reservation this week. You won't be disappointed.
