High Tea served with urban sophistication, local rustic charm, delicious fluffy scones in Brunswick and Montrose.
Founded by Tea Sommelier, Sarah de Witt, and French Pastry Chef, Jess Hillbrick, these ladies know good tea and cake. The seasonal High Tea menu brings a modern fresh twist to High Tea while keeping with old fashioned traditions such as vintage teaware and classic desserts.
Mary Eats Cake specialises in High Tea parties including bridal showers, baby showers, and birthday celebrations.
She has two quaint venues in Melbourne, a gritty glam tea house in Brunswick and a charming cottage in Montrose at the base of Mount Dandenong.
The Brunswick Tea House was awarded ‘Australia’s Best Tea House’ in 2016. A testament to the team’s dedication to outstanding service, exceptional tea preparation, and freshly prepared food. Mary Eats Cake has newly renovated function rooms that you can hire from as little as 8 guests. There’s crystal chandeliers, exposed brick feature walls, fresh flowers, and glamorous vintage tea ware. The Mary Team provide an exquisite experience giving you time to sip, savour, and celebrate your High Tea moment. The Montrose venue has a French cottage glam feel set in the leafy green suburbs of Montrose at the base of Mount Dandenong.
The menu is a burst of colour that boasts a combination of sweet and savoury items all of which are baked fresh in house. Jessica also created a Vegan and Gluten Free High Tea that is a leap away from traditional High Tea. It’s important for us to create a menu that caters for everyone. We want our space to be inclusive and we’re really proud of what we could create. Let the people eat cake!” she jokes.
