Lavender’s earthy flavour is similar to rosemary but with a whiff of potpourri. Somehow, its heady taste is quite fitting with scones. Studded with tiny lavender buds, Cape Lavender’s scones are fragrant and delicious, especially when slathered with lots of cream and strawberry jam!

Freshly baked, they are very much worth the 20 minute wait. These were piping hot out of the oven (that’s why the cream looks so sloppy – it’s melting) and really scrumptious.

Knobbly scones are always the best.

Cape Lavender also serves high tea for one (or many), which seemed very popular. A cute mix of bite sized morsels, it was well executed. I didn’t have the high tea myself, but the sister rated it well.

Cape Lavender is just behind the Margaret River Chocolate Factory in the Swan Valley. Even though it’s a bit touristy with lavender products and a coffee paraphernalia store tacked on, with no actual fresh lavender (just plastic stalks), the scones are a highlight.

We’re not in Provence and there are no fields of swaying lavender here, but we can always imagine…

The bottom tier of the high tea, minus one mini scone – the red velvet cupcake was especially good.

    I had the high tea at Cape Lavender over a year ago now. At that time they had a half price offer so my friends and I headed out there. It was really lovely, and I agree on their red velvet. It is by far the best red velvet I’ve had in Perth. It’s got that red velvet taste I know and love from the US.

    Su – SO wish they had a two for one special now! The restaurant is quite pleasant – though there was an oddity I was reluctant to mention. The day we went, there were a lot of flies in the restaurant, so maybe now with the lack of flies is the right time to go…. Try the red velvet from Sherbet, perhaps you will like it.
