After finishing my pot of tea at Grogan's, I went into Powerscourt Townhouse, scouting for a good spot to sketch. The sun was still shining, but showers were threatening. I sat at the café at the very top, Le Petit Parisien. I ordered a camomile tea and a strawberry tart and set out to sketch what was in front of me, the tart first, which I then ate, then the teapot and cup (I like my tea lukewarm). A friend sat at the same table and we sketched and chatted away until it was time to meet the rest of the gang!
My sketch of the strawberry tart doesn't look as tempting as the photo on their website, but, trust me, it was delicious!
