Whether you call it ‘high tea’, Devonshire tea, or simply ‘afternoon tea’, nothing beats tea served with freshly baked scones and lashings of thick cream and jam. Here’s our pick of some of the best Perth based city spots for teatime treats. We recommend checking first and making a booking before you visit.
HIGH TEA AROUND PERTH
Situated in the historic Royal Hotel, Fleur not only looks gorgeous, but serves up a pretty fabulous high tea, too. Granted, you might not find your traditional scones, jam and cream, but you’ll be offered some interesting contemporary alternatives on the set menu – among them, perhaps toasted corn cake with whipped soft cheese and truffle, followed by lemon myrtle meringue pie.
2. May Street Larder
This East Fremantle favourite offers a daily Artisan High Tea focused on local, seasonal produce with a creative twist. Expect house-smoked salmon buckwheat blinis, and their signature KFC (Korean fried chicken) sliders, alongside chocolate & salted caramel brownies and lemon curd slice.
3. Treasury Lounge & Bar
Settle in among the Como hotel’s bright and airy Treasury Lounge & Bar and celebrate the best of West Australian produce, with a side of local art by Philippa and Alex Nikulinsky. The seasonal afternoon-tea menus are a work of art in themselves, with winter treats including truffled egg and mayonnaise, chives and black truffle sandwiches, and Mont Blanc (chestnut cream, vanilla Chantilly, cassis jam and meringue).
