High tea at The Little Teapot

I hadn't heard of The Little Teapot until spotting a Groupon offer for high tea. We booked in for this afternoon without realising that there were two Kilbirnie Fairs on at the same time outside (yes, two similar events in the same suburb on the same day). After wandering around both fairs for a bit, we were early for our appointment at The Little Teapot but they were happy to accommodate us.

The menu is baked fresh and changes daily. Nine savoury and sweet items are presented in two layers and accompanied by quaint cutlery and crockery and cute coloured bottles of chilled water. Once again, we passed over the tea menu in favour of coffee.

Starting from the bottom, we had ham, lettuce, tomato and piccolini sandwiches, crème fraiche mini sandwiches with cucumber and mint, caramelised onion tarts and mushroom and ricotta tarts. The sweet layer had scones with jam and cream, lemon tarts with raspberry, mini vanilla cupcakes and double chocolate brownie to finish. (Does that add up to nine? I think I've missed one somewhere.)
