Mother's Day Ideas

April 22, 2015


Mothers Day is just around the corner! This is a great day to celebrate and honour our Mums.

Why not mix things up a bit and take her into the City for the day? There are so many great places and shopping opportunities.

Today I will be sharing with you some great places that serve high tea, coffee and cake in Melbourne

1)   The Tea Salon  (Level 2- The Emporium Melbourne: 295 Lonsdale Street)

The Tea Salon is one of my personal favourite places to visit.  I went there for my birthday and have continued to visit after. The high tea includes sandwiches, sweets, your choice of scones and your choice of loose-leaf tea or espresso coffee. Everything is served on beautiful vintage plates, cups and teapots.

It may be a good idea to call and book a table as there might be a line to wait for a table.

2)   Hopetoun Tea Rooms  (Shop 1&2- 282 Collins Street Melbourne)

The Hopetoun Tea Rooms is one of the iconic spots to have tea and cake in Melbourne it was established in 1892 located in one of our heritage buildings The Block Arcade. You will be amazed with the cake display the atmosphere is great with old charm and heritage fine food

If you want to attend for high tea reservations are available and I highly recommend that you do book a table as the lines are usually very long.

3)  The Grand Hyatt   (123 Collins Street Melbourne)

If you and your Mum love luxury then this high tea is for you! You have a great selection of scones, elegant finger sandwiches and beautiful desserts and pastries from the kitchen’s patisserie presented and served on traditional tiered platters.

The atmosphere in the Grand Hyatt is great there is a beautiful fireplace and the staff are very friendly and helpful.

4) Little Cupcakes  (Shop 7 Degraves Street Melbourne)

If you are in a hurry and just want to stop for a quick cup of coffee and cake or your not able to have high tea. I highly recommend Little Cupcakes. It’s a great area and you can take in the atmosphere of the Melbourne laneways. They make great coffee, tea and the cupcakes are just amazing. They are baked fresh every day. The red velvet is my favourite.

5)  Koko Black  (Shop 4- The Royal Arcade Bourke Street, Melbourne)

Not much of a cake person? Koko Black is for you! Koko Black is a great chocolate boutique there are several Koko Black stores around in Melbourne but the Royal Arcade store is my favourite. There are heaps of comfortable chairs and the environment of the Royal Arcade is great. You have a great selection of chocolates, coffee, tea and pastries.


I hope you all enjoy Mother's Day and got some great ideas from reading this even if you just want to go out for high tea with some friends these places are great.
