Quaint but Crusty & Chewy
Have often looked at the Wayzgoose cafe and meant to try their flower pot scones which I haven’t seen anywhere else. Booth seating is always popular and I was able to sit in the front & watch the world go by. At first, it seems rather curious to have a scone inside a flower pot but why not. The serving was definitely generous but the texture was a bit dry making it crusty on the outside and chewy on the inside. The jam was very plain and runny and I would have liked a nice lumpy, bumpy jam to go with the lumpy, bumpy scone. Even stranger to be able to cut the scone like a roll and dip the slices in the jam and cream.
Continued on to Katoomba and got some exercise finding a parking spot and checking out the main street, it’s very steep. At the top of the hill is the Carrington, hidden behind a park with gardens, by the bus stops. Today, even though it’s late November, it was quite dark inside although the stain glass by the front door would male the verandah lovely on a warmer day . Here’s the menu. Devonshire teas are served daily with tea or coffee for $11.50 while High Teas are only served on Sundays from 2.30-5.00 pm. Here’s the Grand High Tea Menu, which I’m happy to see includes fruit for those who haven’t such a sweet tooth. Already had enough today, so I’ll need to return soon and try the scones or a meal at the Old City Bank Bar next door.
Absolutely pouring with rain today but as I drove away towards Leura, the fog rolled across the road and the visibility was terrible so we crept along, even past Wentworth Falls until around Lawson where it cleared. Phew, and it was only lunchtime!
