Afternoon tea is always a delicious and decadent treat, no matter where you are…..and finding a traditional one in Newcastle, UK with a view like this is a treat.
You see, Google decided to remind me that a few months ago, my besties and I visited Six in the Baltic contemporary art museum along the quayside. I thought it will also be a good idea to show you a part of Newcastle especially from a lovely view point.
Newcastle upon Tyne is a city along a river and the Newcastle Quayside is an area along the banks of the River Tyne that was once an industrial area. At present, it is a hub for nightlife, cafes, restaurants, music and culture venues including The Sage, Millennium Bridge and BALTIC.
There are seven bridges along this Tyne! Cross over the Millenium bridge to the BALTIC, and up to the top floor, you will find Six.
With floor to ceiling windows, their decor is tasteful yet simple, of course, the main selling point is their incredible view. It is a lovely fresh open environment- I must say a beautiful spot for a dinner date night *hint*.
The menu changes according to the season but nevertheless the traditional tea with scones is what we were after. We came here to introduce afternoon tea to my friend, Fabiano mother who was visiting from Brazil.
After the ooh’s and aah’s when the waitress placed the tray on the table. We talked strategy and Anthony had a great technique of beginning with a sandwich, then progressing to the quiches, then scones, leaving the desserts till last.
We upgraded our choices and had champagne as well cause life is more fun with bubbles don’t you think?
We started off with sandwiches – cucumber, egg and cress and ham and English mustard following with mini mushroom and leek quiches – this was so good, I could have had 3 of those! Topped off with freshly baked fruit scones with clotted cream and strawberry jam (my favourite).
Dessert consisted of a delectable Chocolate brownie with butter salted caramel, a tangy Lemon posset with Pink Grapefruit jelly, White Chocolate and Lime Pavlova and Hazelnut Financier.
Taking a break from the food with my selfie buddy. Literally this boy should be a model!
Oh and did I mention the view extends to the ladies toilet too! I mean seriously, I can’t get over this!
Six’s restaurant promises ‘breathtaking panoramic views with great food, great service, and a great experience’ and I have to admit that we found that they lived up to that promise.
It is such a treat to have an afternoon tea. Our guest enjoyed herself and her favourite was the mini quiche.
I honestly can’t blame her – it was delicious.
