high teas


Scones, cakes and sweets! Rounded of with a nice cup of tea, high tea is an old school oasis in the modern age. Known by the iconic three tier serving platter, any self respecting high tea should have a quality selection of loose leaf teas and preferably, scones.

My bestie and I have been slowly but surely making our way around Perth’s high tea offerings. Perth definitely has some formidable high teas! So round up your best friends, make a booking and settle in for an afternoon of delicate food and conversation. Have fun ladies! (Gentlemen welcome too, of course).


My top 3 Perth High Teas:

The Grill at the Duxton Hotel
Origins at the Pan Pacific Hotel

C Restaurant
Tried this years ago – wonderful view, okay high tea. Discount with the Entertainment Card.
High tea served Sat 2pm – 3pm, Sun – Fri 2pm – 4pm
Level 33, 44 St Georges Terrace, Perth 6000

Cafe at the Hyatt Regency
Seated under the elephant fountain and a piano tinkling in the background, the setting is very elegant. However, the quantity did not equate to quality.
Afternoon tea served every Saturday and Sunday from 3pm to 5pm
Hyatt Regency Perth, 99 Adelaide Terrace, Perth WA 6000

Cape Lavender (Swan Valley)
Not a fan of the setting BUT it’s a very cute high tea with miniature sweets and signature lavender scones.

Carilley Estate
High tea served Friday, Saturday and Sundays from 3pm to 6pm.
Lot 23 Hyem Rd, Herne Hill WA 6056

The Duchess
Note: Very average high tea, not deserving of a review really. Most components bought from outside, below par service.

1 Gugeri Street, Claremont WA 6010

The George
Old school and stylish, this high tea has a touch of mod Oz. The best scones in Perth.

Koko Black
Order a Queen of Hearts tea per person, otherwise be prepared to split every morsel. Not a bad high tea, but probably better off ordering individual sweets.
Queen of Hearts tea served daily.
Claremont Quarter, 23 St Quentin Avenue, Claremont WA 6010

Muscat’s at The Vines Resort
High tea buffet set in Muscat’s restaurant. Apparently it’s quite good – worth checking out…
High tea served every Saturday and Sunday 2pm – 5pm
Verdelho Dr, The Vines WA 6069

Origins at the Pan Pacific Hotel
Top notch, French patisserie style high tea where you get the best of the dessert chef’s skills. Loved this one!
