If you're looking for that perfect venue to celebrate an engagement; a bridal or baby shower; birthdays or just to spoil that someone special, then Aimée Provence High Tea Parlour is your premier destination. Be spoilt for choice with totally decadent Menus ranging from the 'Little Miss' for $27 per person; to the 'Creme de La Creme' at $68 per person, all of which include a sweet selection; a savoury selection plus a beverage (organic tea, coffee or milkshake/pink lemonade for the 'Little Miss') of your choice. A gluten-free high tea is also available at $46 per person.
All Menus include freshly cut flowers and Christina Re cups and saucers - the iconic Australian designer and artist, known for her stylish tea ware - adorn the tables.
On the day we visited, we were pampered with the 'Luxe' high tea. The 'Sweet Selection' consisted of Petite Fours, French Macaroons, clotted cream, fresh strawberries and blackberry jam with freshly baked fruit and plain scones - all of which were mouth-wateringly perfect.

The 'Savoury Selection' included ribbon sandwiches of smoked salmon, dill and lemon mayonnaise; egg mayonnaise and cress; cream cheese cucumber and chives; and very appetising savoury canapés. Everything is made fresh to order and our sandwiches were daintily delicious with the fluffiest, freshest assortment of breads and the canapés were totally more-ish. It can be difficult to ensure that the various treats maintain the correct temperatures, but Aimée Provence has definitely perfected the art, as our hot canapés were exactly the right temperature.
Aimée Provence also offers their unique venue for private events, being able to accommodate thirty-five people with a sit down High Tea or fifty guests with a stand-up cocktail party.

With indoor and outdoor seating available at Aimée Provence, guests have a choice, though I did notice that the outdoor seating was very much preferred by visitors who were accompanied by their four-legged family members….who says you can't take your 'other best friend' along for a high tea experience.
Aimée Provence is open seven days a week for High Teas and Devonshire Teas and also boast a range of stunning hand-blown glass ornaments which are available for purchase - courtesy of Aimée's father, who is the artist extraordinaire.
