Overall, it wasn't bad, but simple things let them down. I went with my Wife at the end of February for Lunch and Cream Tea's. The food was actually very good for the money. The Cream Tea's unfortunately were the let down, which is a shame as you'd expect a Tea House to get that bit right. The tea and coffee were both good, but the Scone's weren't great. We ordered the Lemon Scones, taste wise they were more like bread than a Scone and they had less crumble... Other than the Lemon they were actually very dull in flavour, too light and not dense with the crumble a Scone normally has. It didn't seem like Butter or Sugar had been used when making them. I guess that makes them healthy, but let face it when you ordering a cream tea, your not really thinking about your health and calories. The real key to a good cream tea is the Cream! It's also the easiest of things to get right, as your almost certainly going to buy it in. The Cream was the big let down. I understand that traditional Clotted Cream used in Devonshire cream tea is both expensive and hard to find in Australia, but other thick creams would substitute far better than the very thin and synthetic tasting cream they used. These simple fixes would make me up my rating to at least 4.5, because the staff were friendly and the ambiance of the place is also very nice. Sort out your Cream Tea's and you could be my new favourite hangout! $12.50 for two Scones and tea is very reasonable, but I'd prefer to pay $13.50 and have you blow my socks off. It's a great place... Just needs a little more attention to detail on what you expect a Tea House to do best.

This was the first Coffee shop I tried when I first came to Brisbane. Been here five months now and I still think it's the best coffee spot in the city. Nice vibe, great coffee and the always friendly. If I owned a coffee bar, I'd make it just like this place.

It's just a posh Woolworths. It's owned by Woolworths and as pointed out by someone already, they sells a lot of the same products that you'd find in a larger woollies store. The joke is a lot of the customers who shop here are people who complain about the big supermarkets... iPad huggers.
