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.
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.
