SKY LOUNGE LEEDS // AFTERNOON TEA
A couple of weekends ago I met up with a few lovely bloggers in Leeds for afternoon tea at Sky Lounge. The bar is set on the 13th floor of the DoubleTree by Hilton hotel in Granary Wharf. I've often heard of people starting their classy night out here but I had no idea what was in store for us on a Saturday afternoon.
Complete with a personalised platter for each of the gluten free ladies among us, we tucked in to a huge variety of sandwiches and cakes. As with most afternoon tea occasions, there is much more than meets the eye. It doesn't look like much but I guarantee you will be stuffed and possibly feel a little bit sick afterwards due to how rich and amazing everything is. It's safe to say that's exactly how we all felt three sandwiches
a tartlet, a brownie, a scone, two slices of cake and a tennis-ball sized profiterole later.
I have a huge sweet tooth so the desserts were an absolute dream for me. However, I found myself almost full from the savoury options before I even had chance to pick up a brownie! There was definitely plenty to choose from and the staff were more than happy to provide more hot water for our tea when we realised one cup just wasn't going to cut it.
At only £15, which is an average price of an afternoon tea in Leeds, I'd definitely recommend the whole experience. The staff were lovely; really accommodating even though we didn't order for about an hour after our arrival and the service was super quick when we finally did!
Safe to say I'll be visiting here again to take in the view and have a slice of cake or five.
