Devon Pixies is a quaint, country tea house nestled in serene bushland near Logan Village.
A forty minute drive from Brisbane, this well-kept secret is well worth the trip whether you're seeking a traditional Devonshire tea with freshly baked scones, thick cream and jam or something extra special.
Starting at $20 per person, Devon Pixies offers high tea without pretence or hefty price tag. Petit High Tea includes scones, cream and jam as well as dainty finger sandwiches (fillings include egg salad, cream cheese and cucumber, ham and mustard or ploughman's cheese) and a delicious, decorated cupcake; while High Tea consists of all of the above plus a sweet such as homemade caramel slice.
Or treat yourself to the Deluxe Tea. Guests receive a fruity, non-alcoholic cocktail upon arrival before indulging in finger sandwiches and hot savouries such as spinach scrolls, pork sausage rolls and mini tomato and feta frittatas. Follow with scones, caramel slice, chocolate covered strawberries, chocolate cupcakes, profiteroles and chocolate cups filled with lemon cream cheese. And if that's not enough to induce a chocolate coma, each guest goes home with a small chocolate gift bag.
Devonshire tea and all high teas include your choice of plunger coffee or tea (ranging from English breakfast and French earl grey to green tea with jasmine and lemongrass and ginger) with unlimited refills.
While some tea houses shun children, Devon Pixies welcomes them. They even cater for children's high tea parties with fairy bread, finger sandwiches (vegemite, cheese or ham), chocolate crackles, mini cupcakes, flavoured milk, fruit juice or lemonade and a take-home lolly bag.
Devon Pixies also cater for birthdays, baby showers, bridal teas and intimate weddings with beautiful bush garden ceremonies plus high tea or cocktail party receptions.
