High Tea

Generations of families since 1936 have shared memorable occasions at Shingle Inn, celebrating engagements, birthdays or just making the everyday special.

For those special occasions when you want to share memorable moments with your friends or family, treat yourself with a well-deserved experience and indulge in our signature Shingle Inn High Tea.

You and your guests will enjoy a range of petite sweets, delicate ribbon sandwiches and the traditional scone with jam and fresh cream. Your choice of coffee or leaf tea and our famous Lime Mint Julep completes this very special experience.

Shingle Inn High Tea is served daily to order. Bookings are not required, however as a courtesy we request advance notice for any large groups.

High Tea is also served at our historic, original store, located in Brisbane’s City Hall, if you’re visiting Australia. For more information, visit Shingle Inn City Hall.

Please note our cake range is subject to change and may not be available in all stores. We recommend you place an order with your preferred store to guarantee availability.

testimonial“I’ve been going to the Shingle Inn since my early 20s when I used to work in the city and we’d go there for cupcakes to bring back for the office. Now we go to Shingle Inn Mt Ommaney which is just a two minute drive away and my three kids love the little high tea there. We always have one of their high teas because the kids love the milkshakes, the cookies and cupcakes, and especially the little ham sandwiches. It’s an affordable treat for them and when we go with my mum Drene – their grandma who is 69 – it’s a special family time for the three generations and that’s our special day together.”
