Sunday afternoons are often a time filled with great sadness and a longing for the weekend that has inadvertently been wasted binge-watching tv shows and making up for lost sleep. In times of such sadness, going up to a lookout always alleviates it by putting my issues into perspective. Which is why last Sunday afternoon, my companion and I took a quick drive up to Mt Cootha for some late sunshine and some afternoon tea at Kuta Cafe.
Unlike other counter service restaurants which give you a number before you order, we ordered at the counter and were asked which number we sat at (there were a number of placeholders spread across the seating area).
This afternoon, we had two serves of English Break. Both were of the store bought teabag variety, which was a shame, as we both like the loose leaf type much more. The pot barely made one and a half of those little cups, when we would have wanted a little more.
Unlike the tea, the chips were quite generous in portion. Considering that it was herbed, I could see that they made the effort to make stand out a little, but despite being hot, the chips were not really crispy, but more oily and cooled to quite a soggy state.
Whilst the food wasn't great, the views definitely were a highlight, and without a doubt that is what keeps bringing people back to Kuta.
