My friend Lauren and I had created a bucket list together a few weeks ago. Our bucket list consists of thing to do in different cities of the Netherlands. We had activities planned for Den Haag, Rotterdam, Amsterdam and Tilburg. Slowly but surely, we've been crossing things off. One of the things we had to do was go on a High Tea lunch date - both of us love tea and since I can never seem to finish a plate of food, bite sized snacks seemed like a perfect idea. I had been to a high tea before back in Cape Town at the 12 Apostles Hotel, so I was super excited to take a little trip down memory lane with a friend. I scoured the interwebs and came across Lunch Cafe Nieuwland in Tilburg, which is where we went for our high tea.
The venue was beautiful. Lauren and I both took a liking to the lighting and general atmosphere. I had previously visited Café Nieuwland but not for a high tea. A few days prior, I had made a reservation just in case, as I knew how busy it gets over weekends.
When we arrived, we were welcomed and seated immediately.
Lauren and I chose the Medium & More High Tea. In this selection, we were served savoury pies, two different kinds of sandwiches, oreo cheesecake, apple pie, scones with clotted cream and raspberry jam, two pots of tea (we chose ginger & lemon tea) all for just 36,50€.
The sign outside of the café was too adorable to not take a picture of.
Very delicious sandwiches!

Ginger & Lemon Tea
After we finished our high tea, Lauren and I made conversation over our copious cups of ginger & lemon tea. Both of us were feeling extremely full; Lauren stated that she probably won't be eating for the next three days and I was so tired from eating I even took a nap when I got home. The food was delicious and service was absolutely wonderful - a very big thank you to the staff!
Thanks for reading.
