[Foodie Diary] Breakfast at Tea Elle Gardens Cafe
Anyways, I went by Tea Elle Gardens Cafe in Santa Clarita the other day with my sister to enjoy some tea and breakfast. My sister is one of those people who loves the idea of tea time (who could say no to the thought of nice porcelain tea cups and exquisite pastries). While this place does have fancy
porcelain tea cups and such, they are only up for display.
I've been wanting to go for the waffles, but when we arrived and perused the menu, there was no waffles listed (very sad panda). I opted for the breakfast wrap (eggs, cheese, onions, tomato, and hash browns wrapped in a white tortilla), while my sister got the half french toast (croissant dipped in homemade cinnamon batter) and a chocolate chip heart-shaped scone.
The tea we chose today is a lovely Fruity Berry tisane. I had no idea what that meant, but the menu included a description. Tisane doesn't contain tea leaves and has no caffeine even though they are often referred to as "herbal tea". This Fruity Berry tisane had a mix of hibiscus, elderberries, black currant, blueberries and grape. We had it iced, which I feel dilutes the taste and sweetness of the drink too much. It is still delicious though, I think I would have enjoyed it more hot.
We chose a chocolate covered brownie, chocolate cheesecake and a vanilla petit four to go. (Too full from breakfast!) Very decadent, exquisite little pastries. Even though they are quite small in size, it is not lacking in taste.
I'll try to keep future Snapshots posts less wordy, but I hope you enjoyed it nonetheless. Have a wonderful day!
