Scones and tea like nanna used to make! Tucked into the back of a 1870s heritage listed building in Sydney’s historical Rocks area is our hidden gem; our quaint tea room serving delicious scones baked fresh on premises all day.
All our tea is loose leaf and served in pots. Which hand-made tea cosy will arrive on yours? Come and join us for an old fashioned devonshire tea in our 180 year-old heritage-listed building.
Using an old secret family recipe we make all our scones by hand from scratch each morning. We use only Australian-made gourmet jams and serve the scones with real double thickened cream.
Our tea is served loose leaf in pots, adorned with beautiful hand-made tea cosies, and set with beautiful tea cups.
We are an Irish-Australian family-run business. We opened the Irish Design Shop 32 years ago, and opened the doors of the tea room in 2005.
We are lucky enough to be located in a stunning 1870s heritage-listed building. It was originally a military residence for officers and is a fine example of early colonial living (but beware; it is haunted!).
To serve beautiful old style devonshire tea using old-fashioned methods with the best quality ingredients and sides, just like nanna used to make.
