Delicious Afternoon Tea at The Boundary cafe - Potton

 At the weekend I was lucky enough to get invited to my friends daughter's Hen weekend which consisted of a spa day with treatments plus overnight stay in lovely house finished off with this lovely afternoon tea. 

We had trouble finding the cafe  as we did not realize  it was in the Cricket club which had a lovely outdoor space where you could sit. Its a family run cafe which offers a great menu plus delicious homemade cakes which not many cafes do nowadays.  Inside is light and airy and upon arrival a large long table had been already set up for us with pretty pink china plates and tea cups.  

The afternoon tea is only £15 each and we got offered fruit juice , water and pots of tea and coffee to go with it. 

Two full to the brim tea stands were placed on the table along with a smaller one for one of the girls who was vegan. We had informed them in advance of this upon booking. 

As you can see the scones on top are extremely large and defiantly homemade. The bottom plate was packed with sandwiches which consisted of egg mayonnaise, cheese and cucumber , ham and tomato plus a tuna one. We also got a small homemade sausage roll each.  They were very nice and fresh and we got plenty between us plus some crisps to share. 

To go with the scones we had a fruit jam which I think was homemade too plus lots of thick clotted cream.  They were all plain scones and tasted so nice that I eat the whole big scone whilst some of the others only managed half a scone each !!

After the large scone i was feeling pretty full but i wanted to try the cakes that looked amazing 

First i had half of the millionaires slice, crisp buttery shortbread biscuits topped with creamy white layer  and chocolate which was very nice. Then I had half of the flapjack square which was also very good indeed.  Unfortunately I could not try the mini Victoria sponge as was feeling extremely full by now. 

There were lots of cakes left at the end so we took some home in boxes for later.

This afternoon tea was such good value at £15 each as the food was all so nice especially the homemade scones and cakes. 

I would defiantly recommend you go here and try it for yourself and i would like to go back at sometime in the future if I am in the area.
