Great for a girls catch up. Fantastic atmosphere and great service.
Came here for high tea.
The good parts: the view is lovely as is the design and fit out. The service from Jamie was excellent and warm. She is an asset to The Loft. It was very quiet which was nice as it allowed us too have a good conversation. We were not rushed out. Their rose is quite enjoyable.
The bad parts: I don't rate the food. The best part were the sandwiches. The scone were dry and the sweets were uninspired. Your general mass produced petit four. The tea selection is also lacking with just the standard English Breakfast, Earl Grey and a couple herbal and fruity blends. I only touched one item from the sweet selection and asked if I could box it to take home. We were begrudgingly given a box and told "we don't normally do this, so this is an exception". Wow, thanks.
I have had high tea at almost every venue in Perth. I have never encountered not being able to take home cakes that have not been eaten. Often, guests do not eat all their sweet items because by the time you have your savoury, scones (if present) and then start on the sweets, you're either full or couldn't have another bite of sugar. At other venues, the offer has always been made if I would like to take home what I have not eaten. This applies for high tea that I've enjoyed elsewhere in the world. This isn't to sound pretentious or arrogant, but I have had high tea at some of the best known places in the world and it shocked me to have someone tell me they were doing me a favour for letting me take home my uneaten sweets.
Beautiful high tea! We had a lovely afternoon! at times it was hard to get the attention of the wait staff but overall it was a great experience. Food and drinks were delicious! Will recommend!
