Best For Afternoon Tea in Wellington

There’s no better way to spend a posh afternoon than at a nice restaurant having High Tea. It’s a little treat that you’re not going to do that often so pick somewhere that’s comfortable, reasonably priced and, most of all, tasty!

If you want to have your high tea in a more relaxed atmosphere than there’s no better place than Martha’s Pantry at the top of Cuba St. When you walk through the door you’re greeted by an array of mismatched teacups, ornamental fairies and chairs of all shapes, sizes and colours.

Finc, also on Cuba St, is another venue that should be considered for a more relaxed atmosphere. It’s a licensed café during the day and by night, a fantastic bistro restaurant. They offer High Tea every second Sunday from 3pm and it costs just $18 (or $25 if you fancy a glass of bubbles with it!). 

If it’s a more elegant setting that you’re after then you have to pay a visit to Hippopotamus Restaurant in The Museum Hotel. Sit back and let the French pastry chefs tantalise your taste buds with their selection of pastries and scones. High Tea is served daily from 2pm until 4:30pm. There are a range of High Tea options available, from the Museum High Tea at $30 per person to the Luxury High Tea at $50 per person, which includes a glass of French champagne.
