The National Gallery of Victoria isn't just good for art — it's also good for a bit of wining and dining, with cafes across all three levels and the Garden Restaurant on the ground level, too. The gallery's Tea Room on level one is good for you if you've brought your mum along and she's mentioned she'd love a cup of tea five times so far, or for you if you just want to treat yourself to something a bit fancy. The high tea option is $75 apiece and puts fresh finger sandwiches on the table (salmon, roast beef, ricotta and pea, and chicken) as well as homemade sausage rolls and mini quiches. As far as sweets go, there are scones, as well as a burnt lemon meringue tart and a salted caramel brownie.
The high tea is served with a glass of bubbly and a pot of tea. It's a surefire way to make even a routine trip to the gallery a little bit special.
