Allo Allo French Tearoom

This little gem is right next door to Le Relais Bressan , Flaxton (posted yesterday) . So you could stay
at least half the day . Morning tea at allo allo french tearoom ,browsing in the garden center , which stocks some plants I havent seen before (I bought the most divine smelling rosemary there) & lunch next door at Le Relais Bressan ( probably a good idea to book first ).

 Maybe go for a walk in the beautiful countryside after to burn off the calories......

               The sweets case inside the tearoom (sorry for the poor quality photo, this really does not do it
justice). The raspberry brulee tarte got my attention , in the back there is a choc caramel tarte that I secretly purchased to take home & share with hubby when the darlings had gone to sleep that night.
The staff were so lovely , you want to go back..........

We sat in the tearoom looking out this window over the garden center , 5 minutes after this was taken it rained so I didnt get many photos this day. We had a lovely lunch , hubby had a baguette with smoked salmon & salad , very fresh & the salmon was cut thick. I had a mushroom quiche that was divine ,it was a homemade rustic pastry case with a loose mix of egg , mushroom & caramelised onion served with a salad topped with an amazing dressing. I asked about the dressing when we were going , and to my joy it is made on the premises & I was able to purchase a bottle to take home. The kids opted for croissants.
And I also had the French drink called an oraginare (I think it is spelt different to this). It is like a orange juice with lemonade , that they made up fresh for me. I dont usually drink softdrink but this was spectacular !

One last look at the tarte I will have on my next visit.......

They also have a model french village that the children loved to see......

Again not the best photos , my camera was just hanging in there , I couldnt adjust any settings
due to broken button. But you can get the idea......

 I was inspired by the lemons growing on this lemon tree , so I purchased a pot like this to take home.
Hopefully I will have a post one day that will show a beautiful lemon tree growing in my pot at home.

Who can resist a cherub ? Unfortunately it wouldnt fit in the car.
