Perch"s Tea Room, Kronprinsensgade 5, Copenhagen, Denmark

Est. 1835 by Jens Bay Perch and supported by friend Niels Brock.

Today you will enjoy lovely teas, scones, sandwiches and cakes served on Royal Danish crockery all in lovely surroundings.  I particularly liked a painting of the premises in earlier times.

The tea variety is extensive with tea from Africa, India,Indonesia, China, Sri Lanka, Japan, Korea, Taiwan, Tanzania and Vietnam.  So if you cannot find the one then your in the wrong place.  One of the friendly staff told me that coffee is never served at Perch's as they do not want the coffee aroma to permeate the building.

The menu caters to all: Ferdinands Delight - Scones with jam, lemon curd and clotted cream and tea.
High Tea - Cake with tea. Perch's Sandwich Menu - A variety of different finger sandwiches served with tea (our choice). Perch's Lunch Menu - Seafood salad served with rye bread and green tea. Lastly, Perch's Cheese Menu - A variety of different cheeses served with rye bread and tea.

Enjoying a good cuppa is a great way to relax and soak up the atmosphere of any new place your visiting.  So if Copenhagen is on your agenda, please visit Perch's Tea Room and have a wonderful time just like we did.

Magiric Emporium Cafe Gallery, Oaks Drive, Vasse Newtown Estate

A little history with a very fine high tea.

I know it has been sometime for our reviews on our favourite pastime (you know what that is) but one's life has been a little busy and a few we have tried just didn't make the grade.  However, this one certainly did make the cut.  Magiric Emporium high tea is a most lovely experience from the time you enter the lovely old stone cottage until the time you leave.

The savoury high tea attracted my attention and a great option for those watching their sugar intake.  Our party ordered two savoury and one traditional along with tea and coffee. Service is very prompt and attentive, refreshing the tea pot or replacing plates not a problem.

The savoury scones, topped with sour cream and homemade tomato relish, are the best I have ever tasted. Yum.  Both savoury and sweet selections are equally impressive as the choice of teas on offer.

Magiric Emporium has such a lovely variety of foods, catering for elegant luncheons, private functions and the hardy high tea lovers. I would recommend if you're Busselton way, do yourself a favour and enjoy this excellent experience. Very well done.
