Intelligentia ICE is a unique ice cream parlor in the Strijp-S area. Besides their ice cream shop with one-of-a-kind flavors, they also have a ‘wonderroom’ where they serve an Alice in Wonderland inspired Afternoon Tea. All the drinks and bites that are served at what the Dutch call a High Tea, are inspired by the characters and the story of Lewis Carroll. All the dishes are homemade and incredibly creative. It’s one of the most unique afternoon teas I’ve ever had. The high tea at Intelligentia costs €
Once a month Cafe Thomas in the city center of Eindhoven organizes a special High Tea event. At the first weekend of the month, they transform their already pretty location to a picture perfect high tea paradise. You start your high tea with a glass of soup. After that you’ll get a savory round with wraps and sandwiches. Then there’s a round in between where you get a warm savory bite like a quiche. And you end with a board filled with fresh fruits and sweets. It had cheesecakes, brownies, carrot cakes and mini donuts. And as if you aren’t spoiled enough already, there’s a table in the restaurant filled with sweets where you can grab something sweet from every time you’re in need of some sugar. The high tea at Thomas costs €27,50.
The high tea events can be reserved for every first weekend of the month.
