We stopped here as part of our tour and what an amazing place! The venue was set for a princess - perfect for weddings! We just had scones and tea but they were delightful! The staff were very friendly, helpful and talkative! Was a really nice place!

I have walked past this place so many time on family walks on mt Tamborine, and somehow never noticed it was open to the public. Today we saw the menus out so decided to wander in for lunch. What a pleasant experience! The waitresses were well spoken, attentive and nicely dressed. The food was scrumptious and the garden surrounds were... More

We were taken to Tea & Niceties as a birthday gift for my sisters and it was the most elegant and enjoyable high tea experience I have had. We were served by Jade and Shannon who were friendly and happy and nothing was too much trouble; even with a large function being held at the same time. Being gluten free,... More

I’ve had afternoon tea many times in several countries, but this was hands down, the most delicious selection of tiny savories and goodies that I’ve ever experienced. There was nothing particularly different or unusual about the menu, just traditional tea sandwiches, scones and cakes that were beautifully prepared, exceptionally fresh and divinely tasty. And there was so much of it... More

It was a cold winter's day as we stopped by on impulse for lunch. As you walk down the driveway you are enveloped by the scent of the white wisteria above your head. You pass by people sat at tables throughout the grounds enjoying their high tea complete with old fashioned silver tea pots. At the reception we were treated... More

I treated my husband to High Tea here for his birthday. The atmosphere is charming and we enjoyed a glass of champagne first. The tables were beautifully set and High Tea was delicious - the food here is exceptional. There was a large selection of teas the service was excellent. I highly recommend this and can't wait to come back.

I have been to Tea and Niceties several times. The high tea is to die for and is definitely one of the best I have had (and I have had many!). The atmosphere in the tea room is wonderful and perfect for a celebration. The service was also amazing. I have also been to Tea and Niceties in their new... More
