This High Tea was one of the best we have had. Lovely quiches and sandwiches, delicious cakes and fruit platter followed by scones with plenty of tasty jam and cream. An exceptionally pleasant waitress who couldn't have been more helpful.

Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways
tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary
feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the
city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques,
throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You
never quite know what you’ll find around the next
corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and
even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air
