Delightful assistant no.1 and I recently took ourselves off to a tearoom we’d been meaning to visit for some time.
The same nice old stonewashed walls were in evidence, and the addition of fairy lights gave it a bit of festive sparkle.
It was a very cold day and luckily we managed to bag seats by the fire.
Since I wasn’t using my camera and most of my phone shots came out blurred, I’m afraid I don’t have a nice picture of the fire as it is now, but below is a picture of how it used to look in the time of Culdees.
It’s still similar to this, although nowadays there’s a sofa and coffee table where the dining table is in the photograph:
Our seats were on the other side of the fire, and I had my back to the heat, which was jolly comforting.
We both ordered tea, which came with flowery china:
Delightful assistant no.1 ordered a baked potato with cheese and tuna mayonnaise:
I opted for a panini with mushrooms and cheese, and was delighted by the proportions of the filling.
They were very generous with the mushrooms, which I believe had been fried prior to inserting into the panini.
It was all very tasty, and the salady items on the side could hardly have been fresher. Tip top.
Next time I visit this tearoom I must take my camera and hopefully get some better pictures.
In the meantime, if ever you find yourself wandering around Abernethy longing for a tasty lunch, I recommend scooting up School Wynd and calling into Berryfields.
