Afternoon Tea | Bar Cocoa

We had been planning to have tea at Bar Cocoa (located in the Ritz Carlton) for ages, and this past Saturday we finally made it to their afternoon tea.

The lobby was all decorated for Christmas with trees made of macaroons and elaborate gingerbread houses.

We headed over to the lobby sitting area to check in for our 1pm Afternoon Tea time…

While we asked for dairy free for me, these scones were not on the menu for me.

From top: Sushi, Egg Salad, Smoked Chicken Salad Sandwich, Tomato & Aioli Sandwich. Not sure what the item in the middle was, but not so tasty…

Mum had the same, but her's came with dairy, of course.

While all the desserts were beautiful, this picture of these two yummies from mum’s plate turned out the best.

I took this video on the way out… had to capture the train as it went around the Gingerbread House in the lobby.
