As you know it's Afternoon Tea Week - if you didn't know then why not? The perfect excuse to sample Afternoon Tea offerings for a whole week!! This is exactly what Zoë and Máire did this week...and one of their favourite's was from The Coffee Yard in Holywood.

Their Afternoon Tea is made up of three delicious layers "three steps to Heaven": homemade soup & miniature sandwiches, freshly baked scones with clotted cream and jam, and a selection of their yummy homemade desserts and tray bakes, all accompanied with a pot of Suki loose leaf tea or coffee.

We were met at the door and brought upstairs to the brilliant, bright dedicated Afternoon Tea area, you could sit and admire the stunning artwork here for hours. We made our sandwich selections and of course opted for a Suki Breakfast Tea & the Suki Earl Grey Tea to complement our choices... Our Afternoon Tea then arrived, everything was wonderfully fresh and delicious, and so very beautifully presented on their (rather lovely) custom-made oak stands. Sandwiches, Soup, freshly baked scones with clotted cream and jam and the top layer (Zoë's favourites) the desserts, they are Ah-mazing so make sure to keep room for them - don't worry though, the lovely staff give you little takeaway boxes to take your treats home with you! All in all, a fab, relaxed and very enjoyable way to spend an Afternoon.
