I have been a lazy baker so I'm just ducking in here to share some pretty photos of The Tea Parlour in Redfern.
The food and drink is ridiculously good value at only $4 for a pot of tea on its own, or $8 with a plate of scones or those cute little cucumber sandwiches with the crusts cut off. An adorable, relaxed place to sit down, flick through a few vintage books or a pack of cards, and wait out the Sunday afternoon rain.
You had to duck past the peacock feathers to get to the bathroom. Feathery!
Huuuge pots of tea, and giant scones with jam and cream.
I love how the deer head has a little ribbon around its neck.
And here's a couple of illustrations from one of said vintage books, which was so cute I wanted to eat it. The book is Spin A Silver Coin, written by someone or other but more importantly illustrated by Beatien Yazz or Little No-Shirt, who the title page informed me was known as 'the Navaho Boy Artist'.
