I was given a gift voucher for High Tea for three people at the Hopetoun Tearooms. My sister, sister-in-law spent a very relaxing and enjoyable two hours consuming some beautifully presented food and drinks. Our waitress was attentive and friendly. Overall a very enjoyable experience.

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
