Jubilee Bank Holiday Days Out - Day 1: Slattery of Whitefield

Slattery of Whitefield - Chocolate
We've been going to Slattery's for yonks. Not only do they make fantastic cakes and chocolates, but they have a lovely tea room upstairs which does amazing home made food. Their portion sizes are notoriously huge, which is probably why I'm still not fancying any tea! 

I started with their home-made lemonade, which was beautiful! Zesty but not sour, it had just the right amount of sugar.

My husband loves welsh rarebit, and usually has it if it is on the menu. He was particularly impressed with this one, which came on home-made bread and came served with bacon. I must add that this normally comes with a salad, but he wanted nothing to do with that!

I had the spicy wedges with beef chilli, cheese and sour cream. This was massive! I'll be honest, I only managed about half, but I gave it a good go! This had a really deep flavour, which is often missing from chilli. I'm quite certain that I am a contender for a heart attack after consuming this, but hey... I'll die happy.

We 'shared' Mrs Slattery's cake sampler for dessert. Well, my husband had about two mouthfuls and declared himself full. I carried on like a trooper but still couldn't finish it all!

Clockwise: carrot cake, lemon slice, almond slice and some sort of
fruit filled, rum infused thing!
 
After our lunch we had a look at the new cake supplies section of the shop. It's out of this world! The variety is outstanding! From sparkles to huge industrial bags of chocolate! This is my new favourite haunt.

If you love chocolate, Slattery's is the place to be. If not, their other delectable cakes and savoury items mean that everyone is happy!

  4. Hi! I love Slattery's! We've only been the once - it's a bit of a trek for us South Manchester folk. When we were there my friend did the chocolate challenge. He was unsuccessful... http://goodgobble.blogspot.co.uk/2012/04/slatterys-patissier-and-chocolatier.html

    No way I could have done it, like you I struggled with the Taster plate!
