Tired of snacking on vending machine treats to break the mid-afternoon energy crash? In the 18th century, workers shared a meal of scones and tea during a 3pm break. This simple snack lead to the invention of the sandwich and the creation of the High Tea for high society to socialise before an evening of leisure.

Enjoy the historic refresher with High Tea at one of these cafes in Adelaide. Have you also found a special spot to host a High Tea?

I loved the Mayfair Hotel and consider it the best Venue and value. There is a sense of Occassion in the lovely room and the beautiful china. Extremely well trained and happy staff made our day perfect.
The Stamford by comparison needs work. A major makeover for a start. We were in a dark brown dungeon that functions as a bar at night! Untrained staff who had no idea of service. Such a dissappointment. The food was nice though but no sense of a treat! Ann
