C&G’s Guide to High Tea Bayside

Petite sandwiches, mini-sweets and homemade scones with fresh cream and jam – curl your pinkie finger up from your teacup, because it’s time to experience the best high tea in Bayside. In the latest C&G blog, we list our top venues to enjoy high tea in Bayside.

Regnier Cakes – Cheltenham

Enjoy high tea classics with traditional jam and cream scones, finger sandwiches, sweet treats and unlimited pink lemonade or iced tea. For large parties, Regnier Cakes has a beautiful outside garden with weather-proof coverage and speciality cutlery and dining plates, giving a classic British touch to your high tea session.

Mr Burch – McKinnon

If you have ever visited McKinnon, it’s likely you would have grabbed a coffee or delicious brekkie here! Now offering a variety of high tea, enjoy a traditional Devonshire tea with an assortment of finger sandwiches, mini cakes and fresh scones or switch the sangas for a cheese plate – OR go all out with the premier three tier, which includes all the deliciousness that Mr Burch’s high tea selection has to offer.

The Gables – East Malvern

A visit to The Gables is something very special. This restored Victorian manor is a dream venue and open to the public for functions and formal events. But even more special is their high tea which is offered by table on Wednesdays and buffet-style on Sundays. Everything is homemade from point sandwiches to mini quiches and beef pies – plus the scones are fruit and plain served with the best dollop of jam and cream you’ll ever eat.

Gâteaux By Marc Frissard – Hampton

Let (us!) eat cake with a French-inspired high tea at Gateaux. Offering a variety of hot and cold petit savouries, finger sandwiches, baked scones and macarons, the real showstopper of the tier is the dessert plate with chocolate éclairs, vanilla mille-feuille and lemon tarts. Pair with Belgian hot chocolate for ultimate indulgence.
