Late December a good friend of mine came to visit me, and we did some catching up over afternoon tea at Tracy Cakes in White Rock.
This place has a great location, right at the ocean front. It was quite busy when we got there at 1pm, and luckily I made a reservation. For high tea, there were only about 9 teas to choose from, I stuck with the classic earl grey.
Our food came out pretty quickly, the bottom of the tray had egg salad, cucumber, turkey sandwiches and 2 sections of a wrap. There were also sliced pineapples, and cantaloupes.
I started with the egg salad sandwich, and found it to be extremely salty; it was hard to finish it. My friend started with the turkey sandwich and also found it salty. Why so much salt?
The top of the 2 tier trays had the sweets such as scones, mini cupcakes, and cookies. I started with the scones and had them with raspberry jam and their devonshire, this was not the best I’ve had, but it was the best part of the whole tray.
The overall experience wasn’t as good as I had hoped and the bad experience started pretty early. When we first sat down at the table, I could smell the dirty cloth they used to wipe the table, it was not a pleasant smell. The presentation of the food seemed sloppy compared to Secret Garden, and I still can’t get over how salty the egg salad sandwich was.
