Moms Day Out: Boronia Tea Room High Tea 

Located at 642 Military Road, Mosman it is on a main road but you would never notice as its set it a lovely garden. I had driven past it so many times (on our way to Taronga of course) and had always wanted to go. 

  
Built in 1885, Boronia House is a Heritage listed property and the reason for the garden and sense of tranquility is that it is set in Mosman’s Reservoir Park. 

I drove down to Mosman with one of my girlfriends and was able to get free parking at the nearby Bridgepoint shopping Centre – a five minute walk. If you’re travelling on Military Road you go just beyond Boronia House and turn left, the shopping center parking will be on your right. 

  
High tea at Boronia House can be done any day of the week (perfect for that day when your husband is home to look after the kids) and is available from 11.00am until 3.00pm on weekdays and 10.00am until 3.30pm on weekends. Booking for the weekends is suggested. 

Our group was split between having the Classic Tea ($46) and the Devonshire Tea ($26.50). Taken pics of the two menus.

  
  
In the Devonshire Tea our 6 eats were

  1. Scones (I think scones count for two) 
  2. Tuna fish finger sandwhich 
  3. Mini Italian pasta salad
  4. Mango custard shot (way nicer than it sounds)
  5. Orange creme on chocolate disc. 

  
While I would have struggled to have the 12 eats catered for in the Classic High Tea the difference between the Classic were quite obvious and at least two of the treats were beautiful to look at let alone taste (look how pretty the below Raspberry Tart is). 

  
Other than the fact that I’m not sure how they got to 6 eats (when I only count 5 ha ha) and the fact that they had run out of decaff coffee beans it was a lovely afternoon. Then again, an afternoon out with the girls always is 🙂
