Overview

Since the beginning of 2024, W Brisbane has been hosting the Ever After High Tea, which takes inspiration from the Fairy Tales exhibition currently on display at the Gallery of Modern Art across the river. For bunny and chocolate season this year, the spread isn't going away — but it is getting a few apt additions, as part of the high tea's easter edition from Friday, March 22–Sunday, April 7.

Two particularly big changes are on offer from Friday–Sunday across the three weeks. They both give the two jewels in the high tea's crown an Easter makeover. So, that's great news for fans of food that you can play with before you eat and, for adults only, cocktails.

The fairy tale cookie cake book that you can paint before you devour will now feature Easter imagery, while the Crème Eggstraordinate is taking over as the high tea's signature boozy sip. What it's trying to recreate is right there in its name, as made with Bacardi Superior, Malibu, mango nectar, coconut cream, pineapple juice, lime juice and, of course, a crème egg.

Running from 11am–3pm at Living Room Bar, the high tea also includes hot cross buns with whipped butter and strawberry jam as part of its culinary spread, as well as a chocolate Easter egg surprise that you crack open with a tiny hammer. From the regular menu, the strawberry macaron clocks, Queen of Hearts chocolate and hazelnut cakes, Snow White's Bittersweet Poisoned Apple Mousse, forest mushrooms, cured salmon crostini, chicken pies, cheese and herb bites, and pumpkin tarts with freeze-dried goats cheese are also on offer.

You'll still pay $79 per person for the food, plus endless tea and barista-made coffee. Add in the cocktail and the price is $99. For a glass of champers instead, it's $109. And there's a $45 version for kids, which features bottomless juice, tea, babycinos and hot chocolates.
