Lilianfels, Blue Mountains

After lunch at Brown's Siding Café and a trip to Logan Brae orchard for some apple juice, we decided to finish off our Blue Mountains day with afternoon tea at Lilianfels.

Lilianfels is a resort and spa located near Echo Point and the Three Sisters.

The Lilianfels lounge was just as I had remembered.  Lots of plush chairs, cushy furnishings and a pianist playing softly in the background.

Last time I was very impressed with their scones so naturally gravitated towards ordering the Devonshire tea again.  Disappointed to see that the price has jumped to $19.50 now - still cheap by Sydney standards but last time it was only $15!

Scones with cream and raspberry jam

The scones were nice but I would have preferred strawberry jam instead of raspberry jam.

Assam tea served with the scones

It was a nice relaxing end to a great day!  (Stomach was also bursting with fullness at this point)

We have been writing about food in Sydney since 2009. No place is too far or too wide for us to travel to visit. We always give an honest opinion and love to hear your comments too. Here's to an ever-growing society of foodies!


  1. That is rather yellow cream - it looks more like butter!

  2. i have such fond memories of Lilianfels though we (the boy & I) never ate there but the stay was magnificent, best mattress I've ever slept on haha. I agree with rita, looks more custard-y than cream

  3. Hi Rita, Vivian: Embarassingly enough, I seem to recall using an app on my iphone to 'auto colour' these pictures and I think it went overboard on 'saturation' - hence the yellowness of the cream!
