A high standard traditional high tea set in Melbourne. Don't expect for any kind romantic ambience, just focus on what traditional high tea is.

after an eight month wait to secure a table for high tea, nothing diminished the anticipation. Having looked through the windows on each visit to the city, our turn to sit down and indulge had arrived. We were not disappointed. The food was very good, our waitress fantastic, friendly and knowledgeable. It all made for a memorable day. We will... More

It was worth queuing for a seat! Very popular with locals and tourists. Friendly staff and exceptional service. The Swiss roll is highly recommended but sells out early every day.

Took my mother and cousin there for High Tea and we all thought it was fantastic, great value for money and also was impressed that whatever you don't eat they give you to take home. Would definitely recommend.

The high tea was really nice, but you have to book about 5 months in advance if you want a weekend visit. Also very crowded. They do not have their own toilet and the directions given to get to one did not include the code for the lift and my friend got stuck in it. Having said that, the staff... More

Staying in Central Business District

Neighborhood Profile
Central Business District
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, throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You never quite know what you’ll find around the next corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air of Berlin in the street art, a touch of Paris in the umbrella-shaded cafes and, reminiscent of Rome, eateries tucked away in the most unlikely of places. Perhaps you might want a break and cross the Yarra River to Southbank - walk along the promenade, bask in the sun at a waterside bar and decide whether to go to the nearby casino or book a ticket at the Melbourne theatre company.
