Despite being a lover of tea, cake, and food in general (I think I've mentioned this once or twice...) I'd never been to The Creamery in Minehead before this weekend. I did, however, end up going there on Saturday and Sunday, which is a pretty good indication of how much I enjoyed it.
The decor and music have a pretty authentic fifties feel to them, and they've managed to pull off the retro theme without straying into what I like to call ' dangerous cutesy-cupcake territory'.
I loved the dresser full of mismatched cups and saucers.
Decor is one thing, but we all know that it's all about the food. They have a counter full of meringues, cakes, cookies and scones, which all looked a-mazing. Between me and my friends we sampled the chocolate meringues, flapjacks, brownies and the fruit scones, and all of those tasted incredible.
The savoury food was good as well; this was the hangover-busting brie, bacon and cranberry toastie I had yesterday.
Obviously I tried the cream tea. I mean, obviously. It made it into my top three cream teas ever. And, trust me, I know my cream teas.
I had to pose for this photo with the second half of my scone, because I couldn't wait before tucking into the first half.
I love it when I find somewhere new to visit, especially when the visits involve cream tea. I'll be back. Soon. Probably in the summer so that I can sit outside and try their ice cream.
