Flying Fifteens Tea Rooms
I met up with some fabulous friends for a spot of afternoon tea on Sunday. The weather was not too bad out of the wind and the sun was a welcome surprise. As usual we chatted over each other in an attempt to catch up with all the latest goings on in each others busy lives.
The venue is a cute tea room on Lowestoft sea front called Flying Fifteen. Their homemade scones are excellent, meringues are perfection and their tea selection is so large it has it’s own menu! There are homemade cakes galore, the service is very good and it’s relaxed and friendly.
It’s definitely worth a visit if you are in Lowestoft, a nice escape from the hustle of the esplanade with great sea views too. (this picture is the beach below the cafe) The garden is lovely and on a hot day you can shelter under sun umbrellas whilst sipping exotic teas. The Blue Safire tea was my latest experiment and rather good. Of course it’s all done properly here, with loose tea served in china tea pots with cups & saucers of course. Cakes and scones are presented on tiered cake stands with doyleys. They can’t be bad, as they have won The Tea Guild's Award of Excellence for the past seven years!
If you're curious as to where the name came from... Flying Fifteens takes it's name from a 15ft long keel boat.
