“Dramatic Tea Rooms in Block Arcade”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 April 2012

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.

“Ladies who ... do tea and cakes”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 March 2012

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.

“Lovely food in a very old-world setting.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 March 2012

In the heart of the beautiful Block Arcade the Tearooms are worth a visit. I'd get there early as you can find a short queue (or a longer one if it's near lunch time!).
