The food was great the service excellent, overall a most enjoyable time.
Fantastic, best scones with jam and cream! Finger sandwiches were lovely.
Were absolutely lovely and but a birthday banner on the table for my nan’s 90th. Great scones, and lovely teapots!
As a High Tea House there are 2 things that need to be great,the tea and the scones.
Not a huge selection of tea and the tea went cold in glass teapots - suggest tea cosy's or silver teapots.
Scones were hard and dry more like rocks than scones.
Door was open initially so lots of noise from Pittwater Road
Menu was confusing
Staff seemed stressed and one just didn't speak! so when they served the tea we weren't told which one it was and had to sort it out ourselves.
Shame a great concept just not executed well. Sorry I won't be back.
The best scones I have ever had and the staff were super friendly and helpful!
Cant wait to go back
My wife and I went for lunch, we went because the reviews that I saw on Facebook were very positive - it certainly did not disappoint and exceeded my expectations!!
We had the high tea, it was very reasonably priced at $55 for the two of - it was fantastic value and it could probably have served three people.
When having the high tea there were very good choices and good options; choice of finger sandwiches, scones and jams / preserves to accompany them plus desserts.
When the high tea arrived we just looked and stared at it, three levels of plates (not sure if proper name) with food so well presented.
lon the bottom plate were the finger sandwiches - we had salmon, cream cheese and cucumber and cheese and pickle - they were so nice, the bread was so soft and fresh tasting and the flavours in the sandwiches were lovely.
On the second level of plates were the scones - you had a choice of four scones from a very good selection. We had cheese, pumpkin, chocolate and plain - had a choice of preserves, we chose lemon curd and strawberry jam. Butter and cream came as standard.
Finally on the top level there were a few mini desserts, good selection of tastes.
We also had a pot of English breakfast tea, the teapots were clear ones with leaf tea inside - there were so many different varieties of tea to choose from. The cups were excellent as well, some good pastel colours.
The owner, Stephen was a really nice guy as well. We had a good chat with him and he revealed why it was named Jack and Hikdas, he also talked us through menu options and was very friendly. The rest of the staff were very attentive and we requested extra jam and butter - these requests were dealt with very swiftly.
The ambience if the place was great, it had a good feel about it and the decor was tastefully done.
Overall we had a fantastic experience - we’ll definitely be going again, will take our daughter as there was more than enough food for three.
Scones & Preserves are delicious. But service was terrible. Short staffed. Which happens, but didn't communicate with us and let us know he would be serving us soon. Tables were uncleared. Took ages to take our order, served another lady to arrived after us first.
It was not busy. But he was not doing too well by himself. Our table had not been cleared when we left either.
Was disappointing to be honest. But I do believe in giving a place a second chance if the food and coffee is good which is really was. I wish them all the best, just need to polish up on the service.
Very nice ,good service, yummy food,nice decor. Bit noisy with the traffic but that’s the location👍👍
Nice atmosphere, staff very accommodating and friendly. Food was good. Will definitely go back.
Excellent local cafe offering a unique menu for the area. Nice atmosphere, easy parking and very nice service.
Tea is tasteful and high tea was amazing
Gentleman are very kind and welcoming and looked after us through our
Will return again :)
Delicious finger food, perfect for that special treat. Most amazing scones topped with the perfect jam & cream a great accompaniment to the coffee. Service is second to none.
Fantastic new little cafe. Nothing like it in the area that offers high tea. Pumpkin scones were the favourite and the blueberry jam was excellent :)
The scones were crunchy on the outside and soft and fluffy on the inside. The homemade jams were delicious, you could really taste the difference. The sandwiches were super tasty and fresh, overall a great experience
