My annual visit with overseas visitors made me proud of this icon again. Last year I was disappointed with the service and friendliness but thankfully there has been a big turnaround. The staff were cheerful, accommodating and efficient. I was surprised that we were able walk straight in at 11.00am on a Saturday morning, usually there is a queue - note: there are no reservations here. The window of sweet delicacies is always incredible and hard to choose from; I can recommend the lemon tart. I was a proud Melburnian showing off the delights of my city - Hopetoun is back on the 'must do' list.

Highly recommend this place.
This is more for a cup of tea and dessert rather than a proper big meal although there are food options on the menu.
The service and selection is divine!
Although there is usually a big line, it's worth the wait.

Do not hesitate to book High Tea at Hopetoun Tea Rooms or any of the options available. Delicious food, great surrounds and the loveliest wait staff!! Just don't eat before you arrive. Very generous portions.

It is a different experience and you can expect some very good pastries and cakes in an Old Wold atmosphere in Block Arcade which is a must for visitors to Melbourne.it is fairly crowded and always seems full.

Would highly recommend this to friends and strangers! Certainly need the 2hours dining time to slowly get through all the magnificent food.
