HIGH TEA AROUND ADELAIDE

1. The Rising Sun Inn

Fine china, snowy-white table linen and silverware are the backdrop for an excellent selection of savoury and sweet teatime favourites at this heritage venue in Kensington. And once you’ve eaten and drunk to your heart’s content, walk it all off with a wander around the Inn’s regularly changing art exhibits.

2. Coal Cellar & Grill

Settle in to the Hilton Adelaide’s Lobby Lounge for a celebratory weekend high tea with all the trimmings, courtesy of Coal Cellar & Grill. You’ll be greeted with a celebratory glass of bubbles, then treated to an array of gorgeous goodies baked in-house, including housemade sausage rolls, lemon meringue tart and, of course plain and fruit scones with strawberry jam.

3. Mayfair Hotel

‘Taking tea’ on a Saturday or Sunday at the Mayfair Hotel is an elegant affair. This quirky 1930s hotel, whose façade is now State Heritage-listed, is just the place to channel your inner aristocrat. Depending on your menu of choice, a complimentary glass of sparkling wine or Champagne sets the scene, followed by a selection of five savoury and five sweet delicacies, including fluffy buttermilk scones with jam and cream.
