Adelaide’s Best High Tea


Once reserved for royals and aristocrats, high tea is now a staple in the little black book of treating yourself. What’s there not to like about delicious miniature treats, a cuppa, and a healthy dose of champers?!

In true Adelaide fashion, restaurants and hotels around the city are showing off their foodie flair with the best of local produce. Indulge in handcrafted scones, macarons and an array of baked treasures. Be surprised and delighted with French-Vietnamese inspired high tea, while you sip on Hendrick’s Gin tea. Coffee aficionados need not worry because we have also discovered a High Coffee option – espresso martini on arrival anyone?

Soak in breathtaking views of the River Torrens or if you prefer to be amid the action, you can even have high tea while you cruise down the River itself!

Discover the best high tea experiences in Adelaide through our interactive list below.
