A touch of old world Melbourne charm awaits. Had green loose leaf tea with fresh lemon and serve of scrumptious scones. Perfect morning refreshments in delightful surrounds. Quite special.

This is a cute tea place and is historical. We had breakfast here which was not bad but wasn't anything out of ordinary. I would at least go there and enjoy a small sweets.

What a gorgeous quaint shop. We were very lucky and we were able to walk right in however I had noticed on two other occassions when we walked passed that the lines were long. It is most definitely worth the wait and you will not be disappointed. Lovely food, lovely cakes and lovely drinks and staff were amazing. This is... More

What can I say, the Hopetoun Tearooms ALWAYS deliver! Wonderful setting - scrumptious selections of DEVINE cakes & slices & perfectly brewed tea & coffee. We always have a little treat here whilst visiting Melbourne.

This is a great little spot. It was here before a lot of the other street eateries even existed - and is still going strong. Over the years i have been visiting here, the standard seems to have improved and in particular the cakes and pastries are not to be missed. The only down side - and this is something... More

We returned again this year to the Hopetoun Tearooms and again we were not disappointed. What a gold mine this place must be.

This was pure indulgence! The decor is glorious, lushly intimate, and the service was exemplary - amiable and courteous, only too willing to help, despite the bustling crowd. I had duck confit with fennel mash - succulent, perfectly cooked. Then the piece de resistance - a huge portion of the pavlova - quite simply, the best I've ever tasted. Luscious!... More

The stunning decor of the tearooms, especially before Christmas is a treat in itself. The tea and cakes my friend and i shared did not disappoint either and were worth the queue to get in. Efficient, polite service and lovely bustling atmosphere. Would recommend.

WOW!! The best high tea experience i have ever had! Beautiful location & the sandwiches, cakes, fruit & scones were sensational. So many flavours exploding in my mouth. The service was fantastic & the atmosphere was great. Highly recommend this High Tea experience. So much food & loved that it included two complimentary drinks too. Looking forward to going back!!
