Cafe 21 is located on the 1st Floor of Fenwicks in Newcastle, its tucked towards the back and lucky for you, you can walk past the mini MAC counter and all the beautiful handbags on the way in haha. When I first thought of checking out Fenwicks for tea I was expecting somewhat ridiculous prices for tea but I was pleasantly shocked when it was only £7.50 for Confectioners tea for 1 and £9.00 for Afternoon tea for 1! I'll let you take a look at our treats before I tell you what they tasted like.
The tea oh gosh I love afternoon tea, Beca didn't fancy tea as it was a pretty warm day so I got the pot all to myself! She also isn't a fan of clotted cream! Like how can you not be a fan?! So as you can see I was a very happy bunny all the tea and cream to myself! The scones were amazing, crumbly but not too crumbly just perfect you must go try them! I was super excited about the cakes and forgot to ask what was on offer so I'm not entire sure what we got. We spent a while trying to decide what flavour the macaron was in the end we decided on pistachio, I'm still not 100% sure if I liked it or now haha. The Raspberries within it were fairly tart but nice and macaron shell itself was beautiful melt in your mouth macaron. But I wasn't a fan of the filling, if I'm honest I think it tasted a bit like grass or plant but that's just me, everyone else in there had eaten theres so maybe we're just fussy! The chocolate cake, oh my! It was so rich I struggled to finish the slice but I made it! It was so worth it, it was just beautiful. The service in Cafe 21 was great too, we were served pretty quickly and the staff made sure we were happy often popping by the check we were ok.
I'd definitely recommend a visit to Cafe 21 for afternoon tea, I can't wait to go back! Next time I'm asking about the cake selection though as I did spy people with mini cupcakes and such! Haha.Have you been for afternoon tea at Fenwicks Cafe 21? Do you have any Afternoon Tea recommendations?
