Cassia Cafe afternoon tea
Tea by the tree and creeper
My foodie friend brought me to Cassia Cafe two months ago for brunch; since then I revisited this lovely tea room several times, either with friends or alone. Once I went there for its English afternoon tea after I was dismissed from a (boring) business meeting on Soi Sawasdee (Suk Soi 31). Thanks to Cassia Cafe, I relaxed and took a sip besides the cassia tress which rescued my tired mood at that moment!
The Cassia's English afternoon tea set consists of choices of tea (among them, some are rare teas brought by the owner from around the world) or coffee, finger sandwiches, and a pair of scones. The finger sandwiches being so-so while the scones were beyond expectations. The pair of butter milk scones, served with (real) clotted cream and jam, did pose a decent Scottish accent. They had an excellent crispy-moist texture, and rich buttery flavor. Simply yummy!
The service was friendly and pleasant, though slow.
