It's a cute little cafe with different types of seating (booth, high stools, couch). Pretty decor, and casual. Not all the tables are ideal for afternoon tea though since you do need some space. There were two of us, but we ended up sitting at a table for four since the three-tiered tray took up a lot of space.
They don't have table service at Press Tea; you order and pay at the counter. When we got there, we let them know we were there for the afternoon tea that we had reserved. After we selected our teas, we sat down and they brought over both the tea and the three-tiered tray of food. It's pretty much self-service after that. Anything we needed, we had to get up and get ourselves. As for the service? Very friendly.
TEA & TEA SELECTION:
There are just four teas and they're listed on a blackboard above the counter: a black, a green, a rooibos, and a chai. From there, you can choose different ways to dress it up with flavorings, and steamed milk. We both opted for the hot pressed tea. I got a green, which was served in a tall glass, which I thought was a little odd. No teapots or teacups here.
A three-tiered tray arrived with our afternoon tea courses.
Georgia opted for the vegetarian afternoon tea, so we had two different savories on the bottom tray. You only get one savory for this course, and mine was a mini pork burrito with ramen. I missed having a bit of a variety since if you don't love the savory, you're out of options. Although I will say, that the afternoon tea at Press Tea is just $22 per person, so it's actually a lot of food for that price.
I really likes the scones at Press Tea and they were served with clotted cream and jam. We each got two different types of scones. Light, fluffy, and with a crispy crust, the scones were delicious.
Four different sweets were served: a blueberry cheesecake, two madeleines, and a brownie. All tasty, with the blueberry cheesecake being my favorite. You can get these a la carte at the counter, which I have gotten on previous visits.
It's a great deal for the quality of food you're getting, if you can overlook the lack of table service.
