Best for High Tea in Sydney

Love a bit of high tea? Here we list some of the best places in Sydney.

Sydney has a great list of venues specialising in high tea. Here we list a few of the best.

1. Tea Parlour

Normally High Tea prices are focused at the upper class, but these newcomers are offering their selection of scones, sandwiches and sweets for an unheard of $20. The china is fine, the furniture antique and the decor positively charming so don’t think you are missing out on any of the decadence. Available Wednesday to Sunday.

2. The Tea Room Gunners’ Barracks 

Orignally an 18oos military post, the Barracks have more recently become known as one of Sydney’s more luxury function venues. The Tea Room itself offers classic three-tiered silver platters which come topped with a selection of sandwiches, savouries, scones and cakes, all served with a stunning harbour view. Who could ask for more?

3. The Loft

Check in at this waterside bar on a Saturday and Sunday afternoons to enjoy High Tea with a Twist. Three-tiered platter of sweet and savoury nibbles is served with a teapot cocktail like the Turkish Delight: gin, tuaca, rhubarb puree, pear and chilled T2 Turkish Apple tea. Perfect for an afternoon out with the girls.

4. Aki’s Indian 

And now for something completely different. Well not completely, Aki’s puts an Indian spin on the traditionally English affair. Expect fusion foods like chutney sandwiches and chocolate naan served with lassi or chai. Sounds exotically delectable! Available on the first Sunday of the month.
