THE TEA ROOM
The Tea Room is located on the 3rd floor of Sydney's historic Queen Victoria Building in the city centre. The building is absolutely stunning- full of crystal chandeliers, deep rich velvet armchairs and crisp white linen tablecloths. The decor really sets the tone for a morning of indulgence.
We opt for morning tea rather than afternoon tea. Firstly you are served a pot of tea (of choice), served with brown and white sugar cubes. You then are presented with a a three tiered cake stand, full of delicious goodies to share. There is the top layer of sweet, a second layer of savoury and the bottom layer of sweet to finish it off. Delicacies include a cheese and chive tart, assorted finger sandwiches, macaroons, shortbread and strawberry mousse biscuits, coffee layer cakes, chocolate ganache tarts, fruit and custard tartlets and orange and poppyseed cakes. I literally loved every single one- delicious. They were seriously indulgent, rich and flavourful. Everything we would have hoped for in a treat like morning tea- after all, it's not an every day event!
Very professional and not over the top. They serve you and leave you be, which we liked. Overall really pleasant and unobtrusive.
I would definitely recommend The Tea Room for a treat- its a really nice establishment for a special occasion and the food is divine. Morning tea is served from 10am-12 midday, afternoon tea is all day. Gluten free options also available.
