I love it when we get messages from people planning their visit to Wellington, locals that have yet to experience High Tea or new High Tea Honeys' members asking us for recommendations for High Tea spots in Wellington, generally to treat someone special or celebrate a special occasion.
I have my personal favourites but I put the question to our Honeys and in no particular order, here are our top three picks for High Tea destinations in Wellington.
In the heart of the city, nestled on a busy main street is Grace Patissirie. Here your tastebuds will be whisked away to heaven. Every item is a work of art bursting with flavour. Be sure to purchase a couple of macarons on your way out the door to extend the experience all the way home.
High Tea at the Lobby Lounge of the Intercontinental is a central city treat. Along with elegantly prepared pastries, the exclusive TWG tea range is served in beautiful gold trimmed Cristina Re china adding to the luxuriousness of the experience.
The opulent ambience of Hippopotamus is second to none and the French inspired menu is exquisite. Dress up your High Tea experience with a glass of champagne for that extra special touch.
