Room with Roses reminds us that high tea isn't only for cute Grannies.
our pursuit of Brisbane’s best high tea continues, a visit to Room with Roses
was inevitable. Armed with long flowy dresses and a cute Grandma in tow, Ennvy
tackled our mission of Room with Roses High Tea. From the moment you wonder
through the Brisbane Arcade and ride the heritage listed elevator, you feel you
have been transported to the time of The Great Gatsby. The settings are all
fine China, the lounge chairs are oversized and fit for a Queen, the service is
prompt and warm and the food is delicious. The High Tea came served on a
traditional three tier stand with your choice of Tea or Coffee. On this
occasion, my Grandma tried the English Rose Tea, and commented that the tea was
light and refreshing and a nice twist on traditional English Breakfast tea. As
the waiter brought out our three tier heaven of treats, we all looked at each
other in delight. The first tier featured hand cut sandwiches and savoury
delights which had us craving more after. The second tier featured fresh
raspberry scones and orange and ginger scones, served with Chantilly cream and
homemade raspberry jam and marmalade. The third tier featured tiny, petite
fours, such as heavenly chocolate cake and lemon curd tarts. We loved every
part of the high tea, with our favourite definitely being the raspberry scones,
and highly recommend it as one of the best in Brisbane. The setting is perfect
for any event from birthdays to Mother’s Day to a lazy Sunday afternoon tea.
So, next time you are in the hunt for Brisbane’s best high tea, why not give
Room with Roses a go.
