This is my second time to plant-based High Tea, this time I took my nieces. One of my nieces said this is the best day of her life - whilst eating chocolate and drinking mocktails. Suitable for all, the setting is amazing and the ladies serving us were absolutely delightful and thoughtful.

Loved the afternoon tea experience. Classy but not stuffy like your traditional high tea with a selection of interesting and delicious savoury and sweet treats with the ambience of a modern yet cosy setting. Even the tea menu is long and varied - try the colour changing tea! Service was impeccable and we even loved the upbeat background music.

The vegan deserts were incredible, tha savoury items could be better but the fact that the alibi bar has vegan options in general are amazing and very much appreciated!!! Overall still was an amazing experience.

Fantastic vegan ‘High Tea’. The venue was very empty but in the current environment it’s to be expected. The food and service was outstanding.

Inspiring space, Rebecca was outstanding, personable and fun and couldn't do enough for us. We enjoyed our high tea so much that we went for a walk and came back for the degustation for dinner. Very appreciative for making us feel so special and at ease in trying times. We'll be back as soon as soon as we can. Stay safe!

Food was nice but not filling at all, very much a snack instead of a lunch-type experience. Ambiance was beautiful and it was quiet enough to actually talk! Wait staff were lovely but service was shocking in the sense that every time we wanted the wait staff we would have to send someone from our table to the main counter... this happened throughout the entire high tea. Some of the flavours in the food didn’t go too well together and as a result we weren’t able to finish all of it. It was quite nice and I would go back however only in hopes that the wait staff would be way more attentive.

Too expensive for too little food. The sweets were too sweet, the savoury food was great but not enough. There were two sweets that tasted just horrible, one dry and the other salty and bitter. Not worth the money at all.

Honestly one of the best times I’ve ever had out in Sydney. We had the high tea on a Saturday and it was quiet, but not so quiet that we felt awkward being there.

The food was some of the best vegan food I’ve ever had, I don’t know how you cream a black sesame seed but OMFG. How TF is vegan berry cheesecake better than one made with dairy? I don’t know how it’s done, must be some kind of mixture of witchcraft and ridiculous skill.
If you are looking to convert somebody to the joys of plant based food this is the place, the only downside is that all other food is forever ruined because it will never measure up.

The service was just so lovey as well, we were so well looked after! Attentive but not so attentive that you get annoyed, just perfect.

Beautifully presented, great tasting food, choices for drinks for those who preferred non-alcoholic alternatives, really bottomless tea - we were able to taste multiple teas. Great ambience and lovely courteous staff. We will be back to try the a la carte menu.

Myself and a friend had the vegan plant based high tea. Was a lovely setting - lots of little nooks to dine in, so you had your own privacy. Great selection of tea. The high tea itself was lovely - sweet and savoury and all items were quite different to one another which I liked. We also had the choice of a mocktail in place of the rosé. All round our experience felt opulent.

It was lovely. The ambiance was great. It was comfy and relaxing and the decor made it feel like outdoors was indoors. Service was very friendly and helpful, but slightly inattentive. The food was beautiful, but there wasn't quite enough of it to be value for money. Music was a tad too loud for easy conversation.
