We ordered two pieces of cakes (strawberry and cheese cake) and two pots of tea. I like the strawberry cake. Wonderful. For the tea, I would range as average only . But the environment is good

Visited with my Daughter for afternoon tea. Was quite late on a Friday afternoon - just before 5, so we just got in before closing. Cake window was still very full with lots to choose from. Probably easy to make your choice from outside - looking in the window as once you are seated it is a bit squishy. Enjoyed... More

I enjoyed a delicious afternoon tea with 3 work colleagues. We decided to choose 4 desserts to share, this was a great idea as we were all able to experience not just 1 but 4.... Great atmosphere and friendly staff, the wait wasn't too long either. I will definitely be back next time in Melbourne.

Well located in the Block Arcade, tea and /or dessert always tastes better in an atmosphere like this. It seems many agree as the queues yesterday were stretched along the whole arcade.

This is definately an amazing dessert place. We got recommended this cafe from a family member who had been several times. It did not dissappoint! I suggest getting there early because the line can be very long. They have a hugh selection of decadent teas and an enourmus selection of dessert. Love love love it!

Arrived at 7.55 for the 8.00am opening and so did not have to queue for my breakfast. The muesli with yoghurt and strawberries was delicious. Service was attentive and accompanied by a smile.

Arrived early for breakfast to avoid the queues. I had an omelette which was perfectly cooked and tasty and then a piece of gluten free strawberry sponge - I was disappointed with this as it consisted of approx 80% cream and only 20% sponge - too rich. The original decor and atmosphere is lovely and the staff were friendly and... More

If you want high tea you have to book in advance and they sold out of some sandwiches. It was a busy day though and what we ate was very good. Fantastic cake selection and presentation in the shop window!
