Brisbane's Best Tea Rooms

Last century Brisbane was home to some beautiful tea rooms that were the place to dress up and visit when you went to the city. Whilst most of those tea rooms are long gone, here are some tea rooms across town where it is still possible to sip tea amidst historic old-world charm.

That Little Tea House is a hidden gem, found secreted away on the second floor of 1930's brick building in Clayfield
The exquisite cafe and tea rooms are a nostalgic piece of yesteryear, serving tea and lunches from last century
Forget Me Not Cafe is a charming cafe in Graceville that is renowned for its traditional, decadent high tea
The Rendez-Vous Tea Room in Woolloongabba is a last vestige of Brisbane's quaint 1940s tea rooms
Dinmore Cottage Tea House is Ipswich's absolute hidden treasure - an historic cottage in which to enjoy high tea
No visit or life in Brisbane should be attempted without a visit to The Shingle Inn, the iconic 1936 walnut panelled cafe bakery beloved by generations
Whilst the outside world marches through the 21st century, the world of Keri Craig is firmly entrenched in the glamorous 1950’s and ’60’s.
