A BYO high tea on a rooftop with dishes by Shortstop, Donut Papi, Brickfields and more.
If your idea of a cracking Sunday session is one that involves a gorgeous rooftop, some BYO bubbles and a tasty high tea dished up by some of Sydney's most-loved bakeries, your spring is looking very fine indeed.
Every Sunday, from October 28 until December 2, the cacti-filled rooftop — part of Surry Hills' wellness hub Paramount Recreation Club — will play host to a high tea headed up by the Flour Market crew.
Dubbed Higher Tea, the series will see some of the city's finest pastry masters team up to deliver an eight-course tasting menu of sweet and savoury delights, to be enjoyed with stunning CBD views as the backdrop.
Pick from two weekly sessions (11.30am-1.30pm or 2-4pm) and venture on up with at least three mates, to enjoy eight courses of scones, cucumber sandwiches and a parade of sweet treats from favourites like Bakedown Cakery, Shortstop, Grumpy Donuts, Brickfields and Treat Dreams. Vegan and gluten-free options are available on request, too.
There'll be coffee by Supreme and tea from Byron Bay's Mayde, or you can really step up the celebrations and bring along your own bubbly — corkage is included in the $55 ticket price.
Higher Tea runs from 11.30am–1.30pm and 2–4pm every Sunday.
