A couple of months ago my sister Ashleigh suggested we go have 'tea for two' at this cute little gluten free patisserie in Newcastle. We've been meaning to do it for ages, and this week we finally went. I've been sleeping through my alarms lately, and because I was driving to Newcastle (which is an hour from where I live) I had to get up a little earlier to get ready. Lucky my sister didn't send me the address of the patisserie, she called me in the morning, about 15 minutes before I should have been leaving. So I frantically started to get ready and because Luke is super lovely he walked to the cafe just around the corner from us to get me a coffee cos I ran out of time.
The little patisserie was so cute. Everything was gluten free and there was a sweet bread loaf with dried fruit that was amazing! Even though it was called 'tea for two', we both got coffees. The cucumber sandwiches were slightly different to the average high tea type sandwich. The cucumber was piled on top of a slice of bread, and it was so delicious. I've been putting cucumber and zucchini in most things lately, so it was just right! And the sweet jelly squares were made with gelatine free jelly. On our way out, I picked Luke up a treat to take home with me, a white chocolate and raspberry macaroon. I didn't actually get to see Luke for valentines day until about 11pm because he was working, so when he got home he had it with a cup of tea. It was a pretty lovely day, and the nice weather held out just long enough for me to do three loads of washing!
