If a spoonful of sugar helps the medicine go down, we can only imagine the results when you step things up a notch and tuck into a table laden with Mary Poppins-inspired treats. That's the premise of Sofitel Melbourne on Collins' latest themed high tea series, which has just kicked off to coincide with the hit Mary Poppins musical currently enchanting audiences at Her Majesty's Theatre.

Sofi's Lounge is the setting for this supercalifragilisticexpialidocious spread, available from 2–4.30pm every Saturday until June 10. Served buffet-style and clocking in at $125 per person, it'll see you digging into a whimsical parade of sweet and savoury bites inspired by the magic of the classic tale.

You're in for some exclusive, aptly named creations such as The Tu'ppence Coin — a layered dessert of apple emulsion, salted caramel parfait and caramel chocolate — and A Spoonful of Sugar, featuring an unexpected explosion of matcha, white chocolate and passionfruit served atop a teaspoon.

There's the Dingley Dell Shepherd's Pie, a range of themed finger sandwiches, an opera cake inspired by Bert's jacket, profiteroles decorated with mini Mary Poppins hats and even a pink chocolate fountain. And of course, in the most delightful way, there's a nod to that British classic, scones with jam and cream.

Free-flowing tea and coffee is included with your high tea, though there's also a slew of wine, champagne and cocktails available to add on.
