What is High Tea?

A bit of Mary History


Mary’s High Tea venue started in Brunswick in 2016 by pastry chef and lover of cake, Jess and tea sommelier and lover of tea, Sarah. It’s an oasis of class and fabulousness off the hustle and bustle of Sydney Road.

Mary celebrates special moments in women’s life with her famous High Tea parties. She believes in great catch ups with your girlfriends or grandma over the timeless tradition of High Tea. She believes in feeling beautiful and classy and totally ok with licking your fingers after indulging in cake.


What’s on Mary’s High Tea?


Mary’s High Tea is made fresh in house and has a new face and flavour each season.

It includes:

  • Four fresh savoury items (some are sandwiches and some are hot and steamy)

  • Bottomless fluffy scones with jam and cream

  • Three sweet treats prepared in house by our founder and pastry chef Jess

  • A free flowing selection of artisan teas blended in house by our other founder and tea sommelier, Sarah

  • You can then add cocktails, bubbles, wine etc to suit your liking

What is Mary’s High Tea presented on?


In true fabulous fashion, all is presented on vintage tea ware sourced from vintage shops and then assembled by our founder’s father - Bruce. Thanks Bruce.
