One of the few remaining original tearooms in Melbourne situated in the Block Arcade. It is a wonderful place to go to on cold wet afternoon or morning and linger over pots of tea sandwiches and cakes.

The hopetoun tea rooms were established in 1892 for the Victorian Ladies Work Assn and are a must to visit when in Melbourne.
They serve traditional afternoon teas (including small cakes and sandwiches on a 3-tier cake stand) as well as traditional lunches. The decor is antique wallpaper and mirrors.

This place is for the mid-week ladies who get together to have tea and cakes - it's an old fashioned tea house - but a very nice one.
