Up side - huge choice/something for everyone Down side - I didn't realise that you had to order at the counter, so we sat for a very long time thinking service was slow. The sweet food was very sweet but looked lovely.

We have been visiting this tea house periodically since it opened some years back. We had always looked forward to stopping in to try a new tea. We probably won't bother again after our most recent visit just before Christmas. We were there on a quiet afternoon and in spite of having adequate staff numbers service was very slow and... More

One of this tea house's claims is that it's Australia's most awarded tea house. I don't doubt it. An unbelievable range of teas to try. I had the chilli/cinnamon blend and it was sensational. There's a great range of meals and terrific desserts. A must try if you're in the area.

Adore has added to their menu and you can now eat lunch there. We visited for my birthday on a Sunday afternoon and a lovely little jazz trio was playing outside as we arrived. As a group we were able to share delicious focacias so we could fit in a delicious dessert each. It seems to be a place that... More

Tea was nice but the scone I had completely crumbled all over my plates and clothes. Not really value for money at all 🤔

Popped in to get gifts for a friend. Was slightly disappointed that they have changed the packaging of the tea to black packs. You can't see any if the tea inside and the layout of the shop has changed. It is less inviting than it used to be. Still a good place but the changes are disappointing
