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.

We had a beautiful high tea here for my mum’s birthday. She loved it.
The place is full of history, the cakes wonderful and the service was very attentive. We look forward to coming back.
