The Hopetoun Tea Rooms

We have visited the Block Arcade in Melbourne many times over the years but we have never been into the Hopetoun Tea Rooms.  Usually there is a long queue outside the tea rooms when we go past.  As I went past this time there was no queue as it was fairly late in the day, so I ventured inside.

Before going inside I was asked to make a selection of cake from the window display.

I chose apple and rhubarb crumble.

I selected cha cha chai for my tea and I had a delightful afternoon tea.

The Hopetoun Tea Rooms have been in existence since 1891 but in its present location since 1907.

I fondly remember an afternoon tea with my sister-in-law when we were visiting York.  The tea room there was Betty’s.

    • I am lucky that my daughters often treat me to afternoon tea at various tea rooms and hotel lounges. I think the most memorable one was when our daughter treated us to afternoon tea at The Dorchester in London. Wow!
