Tealicious House, Dunsborough, Western Australia

Three girls were heading to Dunsborough for some R&R, so the high tea inspector checked the internet for tea experiences.  I came across Tealicious House in Dunsborough and the reviews seemed like a spot I would wish to check out.

High tea is $30 per person so I ordered the Devonshire tea and a green sencha tea, hoping the experience would inspire me to come again to partake in the $30 extravaganza.

Unfortunately, the ambience is not for high tea, it is however, fine for coffee and cake.  We sat on a bench seat at a table too large.  The china was uninspiring, a white thick cup and saucer.  As for the two scones they were average and there was only enough jam and cream to eat one.

My fellow travellers enjoyed their mars bar mudcake and coffees.  As I say, fine for coffee and cake.

The Wayside Cafe, Widdecombe-in-the-Moor, England

What a treat after travelling through the Dartmoor National Park and seeing the beautiful rugged countryside and the wild little ponies to find - The Wayside Cafe!

The cafe was warm and inviting on the cold misty day, just the spot Mr Rochester would want to hang out (if he were in Devonshire) and get away from his first wife. We, on the other hand, didn't have a lot of time to spare - so the fast service was a plus. We both had Devonshire famous scones, clotted cream and strawberry jam, with a piping hot cup of tea. We felt most content heading back to our bus. Booyah!
