“Can’t repeat the past?…Why of course you can!” The Great Gatsby - F.Scott Fitgerald

It was a time of reckless intemperance when life was embraced with a rebellious, devil-may-care abandon. Café Hemingway’s takes you back to a time of lush indulgence, and beautiful people. 

Celebrate your special event with our decadent and glamorous Great Gatsby High Tea in our private dining venue ‘10’. This beautiful dining area is tucked away behind a secret bookshelf in Bar Hemingway’s and affords you privacy to enjoy your special event with just ten people being accommodated in this luxurious space. 

As with all our high tea’s the Great Gatsby is decorated with a dedication to detail that makes this an experience not to be missed! Tall, exotic feathers, lashings of pearls and treats so artfully prepared they are a design delight all their own! 

You can expect your Great Gatsby event to be a gastronomic adventure. Experience oysters served with Migonette Pearls, authentic Parma Ham enveloping asparagus spears, our speciality Waldorf salad, and of course you can’t forget our sweet indulgences of chocolate mousse cups, macarons made with a deft touch and many others treats made to perfection. 

Book your tea with us and celebrate life, food, love and friends. Gatsby style!

*Menu’s may vary from the images displayed. Please ensure you read the menu for this particular tea before you book! 

*All high teas are subject to terms and conditions & need to be booked in advance. 

*The Great Gatsby and Marie Antoinette High Tea Experiences are elegant, decadent experiences that you just have to try!
