Where is Adelaide's Best High Tea

Where is Adelaide's Best High Tea


Posted 2016-12-30 by Barry Jfollow

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:

  • Intercontinental Hotel on North Terrace
  • Starting at $98 for 2 people, the IC experience begins with a glass of champagne. Sample chicken, prosciutto and cucumber sandwiches, pies, cheesecake, chocolate cake, macarons, tarts, profiteroles and scones with cream and jam.

    Add another $10 for a glass of G.H. MUMM Champagne .

    There are lunch options of smoked salmon salad, a hotel-special club wrap, chicken, cranberry and quinoa salad. Or indulge with prawn, scallop, or seared tuna tapas.

    Coffee lovers can swap the tea for High Coffee.
