4. High Tea dietary options 

When booking large functions such as a bridal shower, baby shower or birthday you are almost guaranteed to have guests with dietary restrictions. Mary Eats Cake is known for high-quality High Tea dietary options. Offering Vegetarian and Vegan High Tea, Pregnancy and Halal-friendly options as well as a gluten-free High Tea Mary covers a wide variety of dietary options meaning there is something for everyone.

The team at Mary Eats Cake design our dietary menus to fit as closely to our standard menu options to ensure everyone can have a similar experience and flavour profile. When preparing dietary items our team takes extra care to mitigate the risk of cross-contamination, however as all items are made in the same kitchen there is an element of risk for diners with severe allergies. 

Please note that Mary only uses high-quality ingredients and therefore charges an additional $4 for vegan, gluten-free and Halal options. 

We cater to the following dietary requirements! 

  • Halal
  • Vegetarian¬†
  • Vegan¬†
  • Low nut¬†
  • Low gluten¬†
  • Low gluten and Vegan¬†
  • Pregnancy friendly¬†
  • Seafood allergies
