This is a beautiful formal place to Have afternoon tea. A very special luxurious place makes you feel special a going time to dress in your finery. The food was delicious and the choice of teas was very varied and a lovely choice. Good for a special visit our celebration.

Very good choice for breakfast or lunch. Most seating is out in the open so I am not sure what they do in wet weather.

Every time we visit Mt Tamborine we have to come here for scones and tea. We haven't tried the high tea option yet but are happy to have our scones and tea outside and enjoy the lovely garden. The scones are really good - probably the best I have had at a cafe. The staff here are very friendly and... More

With some overseas family visiting, I requested to be seated out in the garden, and the team were only too happy to assist. (Despite this being a tricky request). The table was beautiful and the selection of treats and teas were delicious! We couldn't finish our selection, so go on an empty stomach! On a beautiful day, the garden really... More

First of all although we went on a Saturday they were not that busy to warrant disgraceful service. My father ordered a BLT with egg, however after he bit into it he discovered there was no egg so I took it back to the counter and advised what happened.

Good service and chatty staff, one thing I would say is for high tea in general is to have a little choice in the cakes and sandwiches, I do not like piccalilli in sandwiches or egg. Tea pots were nice and big so no shortage there cakes were nice

We pooped in for a luncheon. Was not aware we had to book for the High Tea so we ate out in the lovely gardens. The food was nice, BLT, Chicken and Clive Pie, Quiche and veggie burger. Just a wee bit ex you for lunch but hey, long weekend and all. Nice place for a quiet lunch

Delishus cakes and gelateria... all home made. They bring a tray of different teas out and you can smell each little bottle and decide which tea to match with your homemade meal or cake... loved it!
