The Loft
3 Lime St
King St Wharf

The Loft have introduced an impressive high tea on weekends.

You get a mountain of food and unlimited tea together with absolutely amazing views looking out over Darling Harbour past the moorings.

It's hard to know what to do - eat, drink or gaze out over the water!

We had the "high tea with a sweet twist" which includes a Breakfast at Tiffany's cocktail for each person - as well as everything else of course!

The Loft is indulgently relaxing and very comfortable - think big comfy lounges, low tables, big cushions and everywhere - those views!

High Tea is available from midday on Saturday and Sunday and it's decadently good!

To get into The Loft go around to Lime Street and the entrance is at street level. It's just a short flight of stairs and you're there.

The "Breakfast at Tiffany's" cocktails looked great and tasted just as good. You get these at the start of your high tea, before the food arrives. We sat back, sipped away and watched people strolling along the promenade down below us (The Loft is one level up from the wharf providing impressive views) and boats come and go on the harbour.

It was so relaxing and so pleasant!

Of course one of the things everyone looks forward to at a high tea is the food!

This was a traditional high tea in many respects having scones with jam and cream, savoury finger food and sweet treats. It was an impressive range with quantities that were very substantial. We just kept eating and eating and it seemed to keep lasting - it really was a decent sized high tea. We occasionally paused to take in the views - it was hard not to.

You really can't have a high tea without scones - they are such an essential part of the whole thing!

The scones we had were of course freshly baked and arrived nice and warm. The cream was rich and thick but the real killer was the beautiful home made strawberry jam that came with it. It was a good sized serving and it was just so good. We actually overdid it with the jam just to use it all up!

The finger food provided was delicate and delicious. We loved it all and it was a great combination that everyone would love. It all looked so good too - you want a high tea to be impressive when it arrives and this certainly was!

The High Tea at The Loft is possibly not as well known as it should be. The food is impressive and the decor is inviting. Just immerse yourself in one of the comfy lounges, gaze out over Darling Harbour and enjoy the experience. You won't be disappointed.
