High Tea is an unforgettable experience enjoyed in Brisbane’s oldest and most-loved café. Feast on a wonderful selection of ribbon sandwiches together with a delicious assortment of petite sweet treats and hand-made scones with clotted cream and preserve.

The tradition of Afternoon Tea was first observed by the English aristocracy in the 17th century. Today many people refer to this tradition as High Tea, when in fact, High Tea was traditionally the dinner meal of service personnel at the time it originated.

A selection of T2 loose leaf teas and Shingle Inn’s unique coffee blend ensures there is something to accompany High Tea to suit everyone’s taste. For a truly unique experience enjoy a pot of Shingle Inn’s milk coffee, the original coffee-of-choice at Shingle Inn before espresso became popular.

As a licensed restaurant with an extensive wine list, Shingle Inn City Hall is also able to offer a choice of High Tea accompaniments from sparkling wine to Vintage Pol Roger Champagne.

Children under 12 are also catered for with a Teddy Bear High Tea. Shingle Inn City Hall has numerous high chairs to ensure all members of the family can be part of a memorable experience.

For birthday celebrations, High Tea can be transformed with a specifically decorated birthday cake for the guest of honour. Similarly, a unique event can be created for chic hens parties or baby showers or whatever occasion your imagination can create.
