“Best High Tea By Far”
Reviewed January 17, 2013

A group of us have been trying out High Teas for our birthdays, we have been to the top rated ones around Brisbane and Tea & Niceties beats them all by a long shot. The food is awesome and there is plenty of it, they also allow you to have tea & coffee not just one pot of either like most places. They have a spirit of excellence and are so friendly the presentation is the best old world charm. Its worth $45 we have paid more for way less.

“Best in the business”
Reviewed December 29, 2012

I have High Tea'd around the world and nothing comes up to the same standard as at this venue. I have been visiting for years and the quality, presentation, and friendly service does just NOT change. Consistently good venue with impeccable presentation all help to makes this a wonderful experience. The only one thing I would say is that the airconditioner is inadequate on a hot day so dress cooly.

“Best High Tea on the Gold Coast”
Reviewed December 10, 2012

I recently went to High Tea with a Living Social voucher (two for the price of one) and I have to say that everything was beautiful. The tea was exquisite and the carefully constructed food delicious! It is on the expensive side if you don't have a voucher ($45 per person) but if you are after a delightful experience, it's worth every cent. I wholeheartedly recommend!

“Nice experience but don't take your children”
Reviewed November 15, 2012

Our visit didn't start out so well with an expectation that I'd pay $40 - $45 for high tea for a child. When I questioned this I was told they could 'offer' a $25 high tea (very cheeky - why wasn't this 'offered' in the first instance). Thankfully our visit did improve. We enjoyed the tea (although coffee not so good) and the bottomless pot is a very nice touch. The mini sandwiches were delicious, as were the mini date scones and cakes.

“The BEST high tea in the greater Brisbane area”
Reviewed November 12, 2012

This is the most gorgeous and delicious high tea I have ever been to. I've been to a number in Brisbane at various hotels, but none even come close to the level of Tea & Niceties. The venue is absolutely gorgeous, so feminine and pretty. The food was delicious -- perfect balance between sweet and savoury. HUGE selection of teas, and the tea is bottomless so you can try as many as you want. The service was also excellent, with the hosts being very attentive and kind. Highly recommend as a perfect event for birthday parties, hen's events, and just a casual Sunday high tea!
