We had high tea on Wed 12/2/14. Staff were ever attentive and friendly.

Food = wow! Our 3 tiered tea tower was amazing.,.. Sandwiches, yummy cakes and fresh fruit! We had tea with it but could have had other options! After we finished the tower out came the fresh, warm scones! All I can say is amazing! Great value for money and a great experience! We will be back!

We decided to have breakfast and hoped that there wouldn't be a queue.
It was so nice to have a very close look at what was on offer. My French Toast with poached peaches and strawberries and cream was just delicious, chai tea added to a memorable breakfast, I hope this tea room is around for a long time, the front window just makes you smile it's so hard to decide what delicacy I wanted, go early if you don't want to line up

This is what afternoon tea is all about - exquisite pastries and tiny cakes, all beautifully decorated and inviting. You may have to queue, but it will be worth it.

We had only tea and several scrumptious desserts. Best Pavlova thus far and this one has raised the bar significantly - see photo. The desserts, cakes and tortes are all works of art and so fun to photograph as well. The tearoom tends to be crowded and noisy, so it's a compromise.

Had a lunch at the Tea rooms. The food was delicious and the service was very good. It was very busy, a sign of a good place to eat. We took some cakes home too! It was so good we returned 2 days later and had a wonderful breakfast with our family before leaving Melbourne.
