Sydney's Best High Teas for Kids
Mums & Bubs
Let’s face it – high tea is really just a great excuse to eat cake for lunch so it really is a perfect mummy and me date with your little one!
High Tea with girlfriends is all about champagne and gossip but when kids are part of the mix the main game is the hot chocolate and cake so get ready to navigate the sugar highs amongst fine china and delicate tea sets!
Here are some of our favourites that have special high tea menus for children.
