Nestled in the front corner of the Sofitel Sydney, with a view over the hustle bustle of Phillip Street and Chifley Square, is a mini magical wonderland. The magic is in the Frosted High Tea, served daily from 11am-5pm until 31 January.
We were the guests of Sofitel Sydney recently to experience the wonder of the Frosted High Tea and sample the delectable treats for ourselves.
A Frozen activity pack is one of the first things to arrive at the table. Complete with stickers, colouring in and pencils it keeps the kids entertained while you enjoy your coffee/tea or champagne, if you choose that option.
The coffee is good (hooray!) and served in beautiful cups.
The menu at the Frosted High Tea is certainly a Frozen feast!
On the top tier of the stand, the Olaf Religieuse is the stand out in terms of appearance and taste. Accompanied by Anna’s Blueberry Tartlet with Snow Meringues and Snow Ball Cookies, it is quite a sight when it arrives at the table.
The second tier doesn’t disappoint with Vanilla Bean Panacotta, Elsa’s Frosted Macarons and Vanilla Frost Cupcakes. With all of the blue food dye, have wipes handy or risk leaving looking an extra from the latest Smurf film. It’s worth it though!
The bottom tier for the kids has Chicken Brioche and Cucumber Finger Sandwiches which are delicious but good luck getting them to start with the savoury!
The high tea is for kids 3-12. We did have our 1-year-old tag along and while I have never seen anyone enjoy devouring a cucumber sandwich quite like she did, I wouldn’t recommend taking any under 3’s. High Tea is such a beautiful experience, but not so much when you can’t enjoy sipping your tea and nibbling on sweets because the baby is trying to grab at any food she can get her hands on.
The adult stand is much the same as the children’s, with the exception being the savoury tier. Adults enjoy housemade scones with cream and homemade blueberry jam, salmon quiche, bao bun with shrimp as well as a cucumber, cream and herb sandwich.
If you are looking for something a little different this school holidays, the Frosted High Tea is ideal, particularly if you have a little Frozen fan. The food is delicious and the setting, a quiet breakaway from the noise of the city, is ideal for a sophisticated school holiday outing.
The Frosted High Tea is $29 per child (aged 3-12). $65 per adult, including your choice of Dilmah Teamaker’s Private Reserve loose leaf tea or barista coffee. ($75 per person including a glass of sparkling wine or $85 per person including a glass of Veuve Clicquot). Bookings essential.
