I have made the booking to sit in at 3pm but got a call at 2:30pm from the cafe manager informing me that the cafe would close by 3:30pm as the gallery requested to use the space. Luckily, we were already around the area so there were time for us to have hightea if we began then; else we would have to move into the Tearoom in the gallery.

I enjoy catching up with girlfriends over afternoon tea which was why I picked NGV to try out this time. We selected the Afternoon Tea from the menu which is similar to hightea but on a lighter end. The lady who served us introduced every single bite-sized snack to us as they were brought to the table.

What we have ordered:

Afternoon Tea (High Tea)

  • Mini mushroom and beef pie
  • Poppy seed bagel, smoked ocean trout, sour cream, dill, capers, pea, salmon
  • Baby brioche bread roll, Tarrago triple cream brie, quince paste
  • Chicken and mayonnaise finger sandwich
  • Cakes and Pastries

Three-Tier Afternoon Tea =)

Didn’t seem like much but we were really filled with the 3-tier afternoon tea! I wouldn’t say it was the BEST hightea out there especially if you are a fan of Victorian style; but if you just want to have a good catchup with light snacks and beverages on the side – let it be Kaffeehaus Vienna while it’s here in Melbourne =)
