My boyfriend and I went to the Lushingtons Cafe in Ashburton recently and had an amazing afternoon tea. I had been wanting to go to this cafe for a while as it is associated with a local garden centre. Everything about the experience exceeded my expectations. The furnishings were amazing and we got seated at this cute 2-person table that overlooked the patio area of the cafe. The table decorations were cute and relaxing and the two slices we ordered were amazing. The lemon tart was divine, so much so that my boyfriend denied that we had ever agreed to share our slices. Next time I will get this in writing as the tiny spoonful I had was definitely not enough. The cafe also does frozen yogurt and real fruit ice creams and I have heard from Matt’s flatmates that they are really good but have not personally tried myself.
