Fry's Corner Beestro: Beelightful high tea for reasonable prices!

We were seated promptly and our waitress apologized for the large party (three tables of people... one being all full of kids) behind us being very noisy. Well, we didn't want it to ruin our time, but to be honest, having to yell at someone sitting across from you for high tea wasn't what I had in mind.

We were started with our choice of tea, I chose the Blossoming Organic Green Tea. This was a light fragrant green tea, not very bitter and went well with honey. M chose Nana's Garden which was an herbal tea. It was tart and refreshing.

Onto the food! I was surprised at the amount of food we got! I started with the Chicken, brie & Pepper Jelly panini  (which we both got two of!). This was amazing. The bread was crispy, flavorful and the savory juicy chicken breast contrasted well with the red pepper jelly. The Brie added a good moisture and creaminess to the sandwich.
The Egg Salad Roll and Artichoke Ciabatta were average, fresh ingredients and tasted good but not as amazing as the panini.

Onto our top tier goodies! The Honeycomb Scone with Devonshire cream was fluffy and moist. The cream was light and sweetened with honey, not overbearing. A pleasant combination. From the sweets, the Salted Honey Tart stood out, as it was packed with flavor. Smooth honey filling with salt contrast and a crunchy crust--scrumptious!

Overall I enjoyed the food and friendly staff were attentive amidst the chaos behind me with the big group. Hopefully the next time we visit it will be more serene! A bonus for visiting at this time of year are the beautiful cherry blossoms in full bloom on the patio! We also shopped around for honey at the shop =)
