High Tea at Melbourne’s InterContinental
On any given Sunday, the finer mix of Melburnian takes a step back from the hustle and bustle to a quieter nook of the city less oft travelled.
It’s something more for ‘those in the know’ than the general thoroughfare of the busier streets surrounding it; it’s warm, friendly, expertly prepared and just the right way to wind-down a week before another leaps up and screams surprise.
It’s High Tea at the InterContinental Melbourne on Collins Street right in the heart of the city and is something of an event in itself.
In true Melburnian style, they have made a slight change here-and-there to accommodate for the coffee culture of the city and the no-end-in-sight nature of the perpetual espresso martini. Not bad if you’re that way inclined. Dubbed ‘High Coffee’, the ritual practise is the same, just with a more chilled affect on the palette and less likelihood of you driving home afterwards.
Each plate served in the InterContinental’s High Tea has been thought of enough to hit all the right needs on a Sunday afternoon from savoury to sweet. Presented in an elementary way, complete with three-tiered cake stand and punctuated deliciously by a healthy serve of strawberry gelato to cleanse the palette between courses, the experience is as lavish as it is simultaneously relaxed.
Treat yourself, treat a friend, or as many of the ladies who lunch of Melbourne choose to do, treat everyone you know, because High Tea at the InterContinental Melbourne is a relaxed, refined, easy and enjoyable experience.
