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. When the sandwich was invented and the crusts were cut off, High Tea for high society was born.

Enjoy the historic refreshment with High Tea at one of these cafes in Adelaide:

Tealicious in Willunga, there are sweet and savoury versions, plus pink lemonade.

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

The only high tea I've ever had in SA is at Newmans Nursery in Tea Tree Gully so I can't compare to others but it's delicious food, a collection of sweet and savoury delights, in a lovely setting, either inside or outside, and after you can enjoy a chat and a wander around the gorgeous nursery and enjoy the plants and trees. There is an incredible magenta magnolia display in the trees around september

I should add that you do need to book ahead if you go there as they have two set times each day for the High Tea - i think it is $49
