No place is dearer than a decadent high tea sitting to cosy up with my girls on a Saturday afternoon, and the exquisite Victoria Room is a beautiful excuse to catch up with good friends.

Situated in the eclectic and vibrant neighbourhood of Victoria Street, Darlinghurst, the Victoria Room is a mere 15 minutes walk from Kings Cross station. Stepping into the establishment, we were immediately carried away by the extravagant yet exotic settings - lush palms, luxurious vintage lamps, velvet studded lounges, polished wooden carved tables - the richly decorated room is vividly inspired by the English Baroque style that married architecture, painting and sculpture all together.

Baroque-influenced furniture and decorative screens.


The level of sophistication demonstrated throughout the unique surrounding was simply fascinating. High tea was served with a selection of dainty finger sandwiches, assorted sweets, tartlets and delightful cupcakes, and of course, scones with the forever classic combination of fresh cream and jam.

Slowly sipping aromatic lemongrass and ginger tea while glancing over the elaborately dressed crowd, a wave of exhilaration swept through me. The warm air was filled with conversations and laughters, where everyone was truly enjoying themselves. Prices begin from $45 for each person in which comes with the enchanting experience and excellent service, leaving me happily contented.

A three-tier tray serving the assortment of delicate nibbles. Traditional tea sandwiches on the top, assorted pastries in the middle, and scones and conserve at the bottom.

Chocolate mousse topped with fresh raspberries, classic baked lemon cheesecake, seasonal fruit tartlet, red velvet cupcake with cream cheese icing.

Date and plain scones served with organic strawberry conserve and Chantilly cream.


High life and tiffin! Indeed.
