The ultimate High Tea experience
Escape to the tranquil haven of The Dawn Tea Rooms this Mother's Day for the ultimate high tea experience. With its old world charm and elegance, The Dawn Tea Rooms evokes the romance of the Dawn Theatre that once resided on the site.
Spanning the Mother's Day weekend, The Dawn Tea Rooms is offering a Dawn Classic high tea for $55, which also includes bottomless tea, a glass of champagne on arrival and the opportunity to win a lucky door prize.
Created from fresh and local ingredients, the array and quantity of food is a sight to behold. Each individual is presented with a three-tier stand, displaying dainty sandwiches, scrumptious savouries and fresh fruit. Jelly, cupcakes and biscuits are just some of the delicious delights in addition to the traditional scones with jam and cream.
High tea is all about the tea, and The Dawn Tea Rooms offers an abundance of tea. The tea menu ranges from the classics to more exotic blends. For an exotic journey, consider tasting the Russian Caravan, with its sweet, malty and smoky taste, or the soothing Strawberries and Cream with blackberry leaves and strawberry pieces or the Caramel Magique, a smooth black China tea with succulent caramel pieces.
Executive chef and proprietor, Silvana Futia's vision is to provide customers with a special, heart-warming and memorable experience. The Dawn Classic high tea is a world away from the hustle and bustle of its location at Gympie Road, Chermside. With friendly service and its exquisite food, The Dawn Tea Rooms is the ideal place to spoil Mum this Mother's Day.
