We had breakfast here on a cool morning. Our waitress offered us a table inside the tearoom which was beautifully set out. My wife's tea was served in a silver teapot and she was given pink coloured sugar which was different. The breakfast was hearty and good value.

I have been here more times than I remember and I have never been disappointed. Janine and her team are perfect and have made the perfect setting with the most decedent food. I have brought friends, work colleagues and mostly family here and every single person has loved it. Mother's day was the first function day I'd been to and... More

After enjoying Elegant High Tea here previously which we found was of the highest level, taste and tea choice wise we decided to book a Cafe Booking on Mother's Day, as they were booked out for the High Tea. There was a miscommunication with Tea & Nicities only serving High Tea on this day and closing the cafe. With what... More

This has to be one of the really true phoenix rising from the ashes. The venue closed for a few years. The new owners know the high tea and cafe/ coffee shop business well. The location is jungle/ tree house style however the very special talent of the new owners to combine colour flair service and taste is so refreshing... More

It is presented brilliantly, there are various types of tea, take your pick. The service is efficient and non invasive and yet attentive enough to your needs. I have... More

We forget how to do tea! This location and grounds are as beautiful as the people serving you. The attention to detail is spectacular and the food is not only gorgeous to look at is delicious to eat and very reasonably priced too. Set on an acre of stunning gardens, where you can dine under the fairy lights and trees... More

Nice high tea, but not something we could afford to do on a regular basis - great for a special occasion though!

What a delight - been twice - once for a High Tea, and once to Cafe in beautiful rainforest setting. High Tea, which although pricey, was just beautiful with a vast array of Teas to choose from and perfect food to devour - such a perfect setting, very classy.
