Daisy Tea Rooms is found in the village of Scalby on the outskirts of Scarborough. To the edge of the A171/Scalby Road. Perfectly situated for travellers coming into the town from the North and locals alike..
I’ve visited a couple of times before and always thought of it as a lovely place. However, whilst curating my Afternoon Tea places to visit list, it somehow got forgotten. Until Rachel sent me a picture of the menu for the festive afternoon tea on a recent visit and the next thing you know, we were there!
Turkey, Brie and Cranberry toasted sandwich
Salad, Coleslaw and Crisps
Jam and Clotted Cream
Slice of Christmas Cake
and a Homemade Truffle.
Toasted sandwich I KNOW! Such a good idea and greatly appreciated on a cold day, with both Rachel and I opting for this choice. A pot of tea for me and Rachel paying a little extra for a hot chocolate.
The attention to detail, with the scone being not only homemade, but in the shape of a star and really quite big, to the homemade truffle made this not only very yummy, but also quite perfect. It’s things like this that make me enjoy visiting smaller tea rooms, as you find most things homemade and that they really want you to enjoy it and ultimately return.
The tea room was quite busy when we first arrived and although quite big from the outside, it is quite small once you’re inside, the staff were still very lovely and attentive. Rachel, myself and my toddler thoroughly enjoyed it and left with very full bellies. My only note to leave you with is that: TAKE CASH. They do not accept card payments. Rachel and I learnt the hard way, with me having to abandon her there while I drove to a cash point! Funny. But not funny.
