High Tea Society

High Tea anyone?

It was my birthday a few weeks ago and I decided this was the perfect occasion for a High Tea! Well, honestly I would have found any occasion for it. I did a fair bit of research into High Tea venues in and around Adelaide, and after reading many a review I decided upon the Sunday High Tea at The Stamford Grand at Glenelg.

Yummy treats, beautiful friends and tea, yes please!

The views of the stormy and dark seafront from The Promenade Restaurants floor to ceiling windows were breathtaking with abundant natural light. The atmosphere was relaxed with quiet jazz music rhythmically playing under our chatterings. We were greeted promptly at reception and seated on a table for six I had reserved under one of their ornate chandeliers :)

First, we were offered the choice of tea or coffee. I opted for coffee first to help me recover from the previous nights antics. I later enjoyed two cups of tea also, I love tea obviously! After we had settled into our surrounds two beautifully and may I say tasty 3 tiered high tea stands made their spectacular entrance to the room and arrived at our table. I will let the mouthwatering pictures speak for themselves............

My favourite from the High Tea was the Belgian Chocolate Tears - they tasted like deliciously chocolately clouds of mousse that melted in your mouth. The only frustration for the day was no separate billing, which is always annoying when you eat out with a group of friends. Apart from that minor issue The Promenade Restaurant provided a beautiful atmosphere for relaxed Sunday chats with friends and yummy treats to boot!

I loved my first High Tea experience at the Stamford Grand Adelaide and would most definitely do it again! 

Have you had a favourite High Tea experience? 

I would love to hear from you!

Take care,
