A delightful High Tea Walking Tour of the Melbourne CBD
Foodi have gathered together the best high tea elements in Melbourne, to bring you a high tea experience with a difference.

High Tea was once a meal for the working man, taken standing up or sitting on tall stalls, which is where the 'high' comes from. Today, it is more commonly known as an meal of tea, sandwiches, scones and cake.
