On Wed eve, Leila and myself headed over to the V&A Waterfront to be spoilt with High Tea at Myatt Cafe.
I’ve mentioned this place in one of my blog posts before. It’s truly stunning. Just check it out:
We met up with total sweetheart, Leozette, from Greater Than PR. Myatt is one of the clients she looks after and she was awesome enough to put together this little dessert extravaganza for us. Thanks again babe!
Now Myatt’s High Tea spread is normally served from 3:30pm to 6:30pm. It costs R150 per person and you get the following:
- Tea or coffee of you choice
- 3 x macarons
- 1 x scone with strawberry preserve & cream
- 2 x types of finger sandwiches of your choice
- 2 x mini croissants of your choice
- 2 x pastries of your choice
Just look at our “tower of indulgence”:
That tart right at the top, next to the macarons was this seriously amazing banana fridge tart type thing. It rocked my world! I basically at the whole thing myself… barely giving poor Leozette & Leila a taste. Mwhahahahahaha…
There was so much to sample, we were totally stuffed by the end of it and there was still some things left over! Leila took a little doggy bag home for her man. I could never do something like that, it would be demolished in the car on the way home. I’m a bad girlfriend. But I’ve come to terms with that shortcoming. hehe.
One thing that really stands out about Myatt is their incredible attention to detail. From the beautiful imported china, to the interesting black chandeliers hanging above. Everything has been carefully thought out. Even the water is an experience:
Now look at all the tempting treats they have in their glass display unit – so cruel:
Once again I had a vision of people serving these to me while running on the treadmill. I must still try that out to see if it works.
We popped over to the inside of the shop as well and it turns out it’s just as impressive as the outside dining area:
This is where you’ll find their insane chocolate collection. They are called Mary Chocolates and are imported from Belgium and crafted especially for Myatt. They have 38 variants to choose from… yes, that’s right 38!!!
I tried the “Astrid” – Orange zest marzipan in dark chocolate. It was deliciously bitter yet sweet at the same time. I know marzipan’s not everybody’s cup of tea, but I love it. I think a few of these would make a really nice gift for someone with a serious sweet tooth.
By the end of the evening I had what I’m calling a “High Tea Boep” – thank goodness I was wearing a dress. I think I would have been bulging over my pants otherwise…
This was such a decadent experience. I would highly recommend their High Tea for an afternoon with your girls or maybe even to spoil your mom, she did bring you into the world after all. I think she’s proved that she deserves this.
