Seating Spaces​​

The tearoom in Carmel is a converted historical Colonial home dating back to the 1880's. The property was fully refurbished in 2007 and remodeled in 2014 to create the tearoom, with teapot chandeliers and wooden fireplace surround. Rooms have been opened up to form one large open plan area. We do not have closed off private rooms for hire. You will be sharing the tearoom with other guests, but defined areas are set aside for our group parties to give some separation.​​


Available for events by request and must be booked prior to other reservations being taken. There is seating for up to 60 inside and a further 20 outside in good weather.  


Group Bookings:


As we only have a small domestic style kitchen and a small team, we can’t accommodate groups of 8 or over ordering from the standard tearoom menu. We find that it takes too long, impacts on our level of service & creates a poor experience for our guests and we trust you understand. If you make a reservation for less than 8 people and more arrive on the day of your reservation, or if a party of 8 or more arrives with no reservation, your group will be offered the group menu.

​Prices quoted exclude relevant taxes and 20% group gratuity (this will automatically be added upon payment) and are correct as of April 2019. If a price change occurs between booking and the date of your event, the price at the time of the event will be the price you pay. As bookings can be taken months in advance, you may want to check price details of any future bookings booked more than 30 days in advance when you confirm the final numbers for your booking.


We book at your ‘high number’, usually capped at the number of people you invite or expect to attend. We request that you call the Monday prior to your event to confirm numbers, check pricing, and tell us of any dietary restrictions your guests may have. If we have not managed to reach you by phone we will email. If no confirmation is provided within 48 hours of your reservation, we reserve the right to reassign your table and your deposit will be non-refundable.


We can accommodate Gluten Free, Dairy Free and Vegetarian diets if we know in advance. If we don’t know until the day, we will always work with your guest to do our best to accommodate their needs, however the food offered may be limited.


Minimums, Deposits and Room Fees

For groups of 13 or more people, a $75 room fee is required on booking to reserve the date and time.

For groups of 9-11 people we require a payment of $75 as a room deposit. The deposit will be taken off the final bill (if multiple checks, the deposit will be refunded).
