Hopetoun Tea House - Melbourne, Australia

Hopetoun Tea Room

Where there is tea there is hope! This fantastic saying sits on the walls here at Hopetoun and certainly lives up to its name. A step back into what feels like the 1920s this olive green tea shop is nothing short of charming. Only a glimpse from the outside window, you will find yourself getting lost in the decadent cakes and pies  they have arranged to catch your eye. From the passion fruit delight, chocolate raspberry roll, or the apricot pistachio, tart you simply can’t go wrong! Inside you will  find an upscale vibe with white linen top tables arranged closely to one another creating a cozy atmosphere. After having the difficult choice of what cake to order, we finally settled on the Bakewell tart, a mouthwatering raspberry almond maple cake. This cake is heavenly with whipped meringue dollops, sugar glazed raspberries and blueberries with a side of hand whipped cream. While not overly sweet, dense layers of maple flavored cake make each bite the perfect pairing. Mango ginger, tea  was delivered in a white porcelain tea pot and matching saucer. Atop, the tea cup sits their one of a kind silver tea strainer that makes for a lovely gift they sell at the front. This lovely little tea room is perfect for a brunch out with the girls or even a mothers' day high tea.
