Very cosy restaurant with attentive waiters. Loved the decor and the general atmosphere. The scones were absolutely delightful and the mocha was excellent. We wished we had time to go back one more time before our trip ended..

What a fabulous way to spend a special occasion. The ambiance of the Tea Rooms, presentation of the delightful High Tea and charming service were all impeccable. The willingness to package the considerable 'leftovers' in such a classy manner was really the 'cherry on the...More

Enjoying lunch in such an "old worldly" setting was a very welcomed and enjoyable experience! Although this is a small venue in one of Melbourne's iconic buildings, it is very popular with, at most times, a waiting queue. Staff are efficient and helpful with tea...More

Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways
tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary
feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the
city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques,

corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and
even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air
