All the Pretty of a Mama Doreen’s Afternoon Tea with the Smalls

The Smalls and I had an amazing time when we visited Mama Doreen’s on Cold Bath Road in Harrogate over half term. It’s a family run, local independent business doing great things and much loved in the town!

Such a warm welcome awaited us and we had the tastiest of treats that made my Instagram light up with likes, and the Smalls eye widen almost as large as one of their cupcakes.

Here’s a whistle stop tour of Mama Doreen’s AMAZING afternoon tea.

A deluxe afternoon tea at Mama Doreens in Harrogate

I was treated to their deluxe afternoon tea – which basically means you never have to eat again due to the incredible amounts of quality tastiness!

Savouries to Start

All the savoury goodies

First there were the savoury delights; I started off with a shot of home made soup, followed by a mini Yorkshire pudding an amazing array of homemade sandwiches, from brie and black grape on brioche to more traditional mature cheddar cheese with locally made caramelised onion chutney to a Pepper pesto and rocket wrap.

Then there was a savoury scone, smoked salmon pate in a choux bun and a warm caramelised onion quiche.

The Deliciousness of Desert

Then it was time for desert;  freshly baked scone with jam and clotted cream, a champagne macaron (my favourite of everything) red velvet, red rose, mini cupcake, raspberry panacotta, chocolate ganache tartlets, heart shortbread and chocolate eclairs!


It was all served alongside unlimited tea and coffee and finished off with champagne truffles!
