SHABBY Duck Studio has opened an 1899-inspired High Tea Room next to its studio on Bussell Highway.
The Mail got a sneak peek of the High Tea Room when owners Mark and Monique Sheldon-Stemm launched their High Tea experience on Saturday.
Mr Sheldon-Stemm said Shabby Duck’s 1899 High Tea Room would cater for everyone seeking a traditional High Tea experience thanks to beautiful decor, exciting tasty treats and classic service you rarely find in cafes or restaurants these days.
“We saw this as a natural progression from the current Shabby Duck business where we have the shabby chic furniture and the wares such as vintage, French provincial, etc,” he said.
“It leads on from the old world and yesteryear.
“People then get a chance to experience what it was like in days gone by and be in what might have been a familiar setting for them many years ago.”
The High Tea Room is open from 2-5pm, Wednesday through to Sunday.
For $40 per person, guests can enjoy a traditional high tea featuring mini sandwiches, scones with strawberry jam and real cream, petits fours, fruit flans or cupcakes, nougat or strawberries dipped in chocolate, and a number of other bite-sized treats.
Seven Seas Teas and Cinnamon Girl Teas will also be available.
Bookings are preferred and necessary for groups of six or more, however walk ins are most welcome.
