Hopetoun Tea Rooms is undoubtedly one of the most popular dessert places in town and if you spot a crowd behind the Collins Street entrance of the Block Arcade, you’ll know you’re at the right place. Famous for its high tea and delectable cakes, which already look so tempting on the display, Hopetoun Tea Rooms is the place to go if you’re looking for great dessert in town and have extra cash to spend. Recently, my cousins came to visit and this was one of the places on my to-go list for food, and we thoroughly enjoyed it here. Situated immediately after the entrance of the Block Arcade when you walk in, Hopetoun Tea Rooms is also strategically located in the heart of the CBD surrounded by other malls and shops along Collins Street, which is constantly bustling with people and well-known for offering a high-end shopping experience. So if you find yourself with a free afternoon (and some money) to spare one day, why not give it a try?
