Enjoy a spot of tea at these top high tea Perth venues.
Whether it’s an afternoon out for a special occasion, or just because. High tea is the kind of pick me up we all need to indulge in every now and then.
Gather the girls, or boys, or just treat yourself with one of the great high tea venues in Perth we’ve included in our roundup below.
Add a pot of freshly brewed tea or a glass of bubbly and you’ve got all the trimmings of savoury and sweet tiers of delight.
When one of Perth’s premier fine diners launches their version of high tea, you know it’s going to be good. Situated in the Royal Hotel, Fleur is headed up by Chef Chase Weber and is a beautifully refined affair that features some pretty outstanding bites.
Badged as ‘afternoon bloom’, Fleur positions its offering as less high tea, and more high treat – and we think this totally hits the mark. It’s an elevated event costing $65 per head that takes place in two Saturday sittings, one at 12pm and one at 2.30pm.
Start with a glass of prosecco on arrival, then munch away with a savoury course followed by decadent sweets.
Treasury Lounge and Bar
When you think of high tea in Perth, Como The Treasury sits well and truly at the top of most peoples lists.
The Como is Perth’s most gorgeous and revered hotel – and with good reason. Its’ plush interiors, and chic, effortless style make it eye candy central, as well as being the ideal location for a lazy afternoon enjoying high tea (Wednesday to Sunday from 12 noon to 5pm).
They have three different high tea packages to choose from: the Classic for $65 per person, Western Australian for $75 (with a glass of WA sparkling) and Signature for $85 (which includes a glass of Taittinger Champagne).
As the bar is situated above “Point Zero”, the marker to which all distances to Perth are measured, the menu showcases just how far each ingredient in each dish has travelled from the various Western Australian producers used.
With divine bites and an opulent setting, you won’t leave disappointed.
Bites by D
A bright, light location in Mount Hawthorn is where you will find another top high tea Perth venue.
Bites by D brings high tea to you every day (or nearly so) running Tuesday to Sunday.
Their high tea is $45 on weekdays or $55 on weekends (and a twilight session on Saturday late afternoon for $59 for large groups of 15+). All sessions include savoury and petite desserts, with a hot beverage of your choice, be it a 5 Senses coffee or a T2 pot of tea.
And for those so inclined, you can also BYO your own champers at only $5 corkage fee for the bottle.
Make your way through the different mini bites on offer – especially the sweets because this patisserie really brings a strong cake game to the table.

Okay so it’s not high tea, but high coffee is easily just as enticing – and that’s what makes Crown Perth’s TWR stand out amongst the pack.
Available every day from 12pm-5pm, it’s priced at $28 per person and you can add on a cocktail for $15.
