A French-inspired afternoon tea served in picnic hamper? Sounds like a decent way to spend an afternoon to the cake-lovers among us.
French bistro and bakery, La Serre - has launched a new daily afternoon tea and it comes in at pocket-friendly Dhs79.
Picnickers can choose three savoury bites and six sweet nibbles, all of which are mini versions of La Serre’s bestsellers, and the afternoon tea deal also includes one drink with the choice between 14 different types of iced and hot teas.
The savoury options include a homemade bagel with smoked salmon, cream cheese and shallots, a tomato and brie tart, a traditional French croque monsieur, and an assortment of freshly made savoury cookies with flavours such as lemon, rosemary and parmesan, blue cheese and walnuts, and tarragon and orange on the menu.
Sweet treats include a hazelnut cake pop, an almond cake with strawberry confit and rose-scented cream, an orange blossom macaroon, a homemade strawberry marshmallow, a pistachio and strawberry choux, and a strawberry puff brioche.
If you love French pastries you can also choose between the popular almond croissant, a rose croissant with almond cream, a pain au chocolate or a cinnamon roll.
