The Tearooms 1892 is located in the historic Block Arcade in Melbourne. They are listed on the Victorian Heritage Register and The National Trust ensuring that not only are they protected but the tradition of the quaint atmosphere of old world gentility, refinement and quality continues.

From the emerald green printed wallpaper, the magnificent etched mirror, the chandeliers and the white and gold fine bone china, the decor is much the same as it was back then and we look forward to delighting you in the experience of yester-year.

My first time here, and I’m certain it will not be my last. Lovely selection of cakes and tea to choose from, and I ended up having the chocolate Swiss roll and Congo Bongo tea. Most delicious combination as recommended by their staff.

This tea room is a must visit place whenever I come to Melbourne. Extremely well trained staffs with their friendliness and good manners makes it more special. The cake? 10 out if 10 obviously. I’m feeling like sitting in one of a romantic cafe in Paris.

Popped in to have lunch at the Tea Rooms 1892 as per tradition before flying home. Friendly welcoming staff & great food ensured our lunch was another fabulous holiday memory. Can’t wait to return !





Apart from tea and cakes, there is an amazing Barista that serves good coffee with a beautiful coffee art.
I look forward to visiting this place again!
