Hopetoun Tea Rooms

Hopetoun Tea Rooms

Located in Melbourne’s famous Block Arcade, the Hopetoun Tea Rooms is steeped in history. Opening in 1892, the tea rooms were first run by the Victorian Ladies Work Association and named after their founder Lady Hopetoun, wife of former Victorian Governor and Australian Governor-General Lord Hopetoun. Served on a three-tier cake stand, the bottom tier is full of savoury selections, including Hopetoun’s famous pinwheel sandwiches. Our favourite treat was the sizable pumpkin roulade filled with a generous amount of smoked salmon, goats cheese mousse and spinach. The familiar line of people who wait outside to get seated at one of the 20 tables is testament to the sensational service and sweets inside.
