It is day 2 of what promises to be a 7 day South-Easter howl-fest and it feels like there is nowhere to hide. Our mood is sour, our eyes scratchy and work seems such a drag.
Then we came across some images from earlier this year and we have found a way to make today better. Motivated by the delightful offerings shown on these images, we are now rushing to finish our work early in order to decamp to the serenity and no doubt perfectly climate controlled space that is the Vista Bar& Lounge at the One&Only.
Kyle Hickman, Head Patissier, and his team ladens the tables each afternoon with ridiculously good-looking baked sweets and savouries.
Kyle`s baking looks perfectly classic French, but tastes absolutely homemade. This fact, more than the ambience, the astounding range of teas and trendy cocktails on offer is what really makes The One&Only our favourite High Tea in Cape Town.
Here is a few images of our visit earlier this year to interview the very funny Chris Von Ulmenstein
( that story coming soon).
If all goes well, we might just see you there this afternoon.
