Hopetoun Tea Rooms is this delicate little shop established in 1892, located in the Block Arcade on Collins Street. I had walked past this shop several times, stopping to gawk at the various types of pastries showcased! BUT didn’t get the chance nor occasion to walk in and give it a try! Oh well, since it was my birthday, I decided to pamper myself with a tiny bit of TLC.
As an avid macarons lover, I couldn’t resist the temptation of trying some when I saw them at the counter. With the heatwave hitting us, a glass of icy cold Fiji tea made the little tea adventure perfect! The presentation at the tea room was rather sophisticated and detailed I must say.
Also, we decided to give one of their signature sandwiches a try! We had the Sirloin Beef sandwich with beetroot, personally I have never tried beetroot in my life. It wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be, it actually went well with the beef and made the sandwich a delight!
