The decor is as cute as can be, in a casually hip, vintage kind of way. MM settled in to the kitchen-style table with its cheery checked tablecloth and vase of flowers and basked in the warm glow of the fake fire in the fireplace!
Dramanti coffee (with Barambah Organics milk), a selection of lovely teas, Margaret River sodas and a small range of simple cakes and tarts. The sand cake with lemon icing would impress those genteel ladies of a certain age if they did find themselves in the Southside Tea Room. It is a delightful, old-fashioned buttery cake - a bit like sponge but more dense in texture with a simple lemon icing.
The chai latte is made with tea leaves and sweetened with just the right amount of honey and sprinkling of cinnamon - perfect on a nippy winter's morning.
Southside Tea Room breathes a little bit of life and character into this rather dreary strip of shops on Wynnum Road. It's like a breath of fresh air, and MM will definitely be back soon.
