Melbourne's Best High Tea

Melbourne's Best High Tea

Melbourne may consider it is the coffee capital but we also drink 22+ million cups of tea every day.

Afternoon tea or the classic high tea has seen a resurgence in Melbourne, so too has the return to elegance in fashion. Tea, cucumber sandwiches and petit fours in a venue that boasts class and elegance seems to never go out of style.

Hopetoun Tea Rooms (original and new)


The Tea Rooms 1892 is the new business located in the Block Arcade where Hopetoun Tea Rooms operated from 1892.

Sadly, there is animosity between the two operators. Hopefully in time, it will be resolved so that Melbourne can once again enjoy tea at either venue.

We've not been to the new The Tea Rooms 1892 and the original Hopetoun Tea Rooms have moved to 421 Bourke Street, Melbourne but as of 2023 are yet to open.

Stay tuned!
