We were shouted “High tea” at Zumbo’s (delivery on an IOU from Christmas). Zumbo is described as a “bakery cafe, high tea salon and cocktail bar”, and is well-known to foodies. It’s located up Daly Street, a short street off Chapel St in South Yarra.
I admit that it was a new experience for me. I’ve had “high tea” before, but as I recall (it was quite a few years ago!), it consisted mainly of sandwiches and cute cakes. This was different: first, some very nice sweets, then scones, a palate cleanser, warm pea soup and finally a couple of savoury items. (It was the Pretty Flamingo menu). The presentation was lovely, and the flavours were excellent.
It’s obviously a “chick” place. There were several groups of ladies, and very few males. Still, very different, and most enjoyable, even if it it’s not something I would indulge in on a regular basis!
