Melbourne’s iconic art gallery and Auction house, Mossgreen, has opened a stylish new eatery in its High Street location. The Tearooms are in a heritage space, formerly the old Armadale Picture Theatre, with the original leadlight copper edged windows; the space providing a unique place where modern meets old. Opening for early morning breakfast, lunch, Afternoon Tea and High Tea, The Tearooms and the modern gallery, complete with contemporary terrazzo flooring, state of the art fittings and styled with white linen clad tables provide the perfect place to enjoy a day time meal.
The Breakfast menu includes European offerings such as the Bonne-Journee or the Hotel De Paris breakfast whilst the lunch menu includes a nod to English classics such as Lady finger sandwiches, the glam prawn cocktail or the more substantial Mayfair Salad and the signature Mossgreen Club Sandwich.
A must at the Mossgreen Tearooms is the Mossgreen High Tea, which unlike other high teas, has a unique setting that sets it apart. Delivered on a three-tiered silver stand and showcasing delightful Butterfly Bloom by Wedgwood fine bone china, served with exquisite ebony handled silver tea- strainers; it is one of the finest High Tea experiences in Melbourne.
High Tea is available all day and it includes Peter Rowland’s famous Waldorf Chicken Sandwiches, Artisan pastries, and delightfully demure macaroons By Josephine. Other tasty options include both sweet and savoury petit fours including miniature lamb and picalilli pies, miniature scones with rosies raspberry jam and double Jersey cream, Neopolitan choux and black forest gateaux some as some of the daily delicacies on offer. Add in a Laurent-Perrier Brut champagne or an afternoon spritzer from the licensed drinks menu, or stay traditional with Lavazza Supa Crema coffee or tea from T2, you’ll have the perfect afternoon at the Mossgreen Tearooms.
The Mossgreen Tearooms are open from 8am-5pm every day, and the space is additionally available after- hours for stylish private or corporate functions.
