Tea And Niceties

Mt Tamborine

Tea and Niceties is one of Mt Tamborine’s must visit hidden gems – a charming cafe and old world tea room (with a secret beer tap room) set in lush European style gardens.

Enter Tea and Niceties via a wide driveway, beyond which are the enchanted gardens awash with fairy-lit trees, romantic statues, bird baths, flower beds and a love swing hanging from a fig tree.

The cafe occupies an alfresco tree-lined garden courtyard while the tea room is in a gazebo like summer room with chandelier, crisp white linen tablecloths and niceties from a past era.

With its close proximity to the Curtis Falls walk, one of Mt Tamborine’s most popular, Tea and Niceties makes the perfect stop for an all-day breakfast or delicious country-style lunch.

For those just after a coffee or tea and something sweet, Tea and Niceties is the place, with a range of delicious home-baked goodies (including a couple of gluten free options) to enjoy – go for a Devonshire tea of light fluffy scones, jam and cream or try one of the muffins (rhubarb is a specialty), brownies, lemon and blueberry cheesecake, banana bread or Chocolate cake with hazelnut buttercream and honeycomb.

Tea and Niceties do both a well-brewed Di Bella coffee and an extensive array of loose leaf teas served in elegant vintage china pots and cups.
