What customers are saying about High Tea at Esthers Table

“It was terrific – I took my daughter aged 8 for a special treat and she loved the smoked salmon sandwiches and the macarons and wants them every day for school!”

“Delicious food, lovely staff, a real hidden gem in Annandale’s beautiful leafy streets”

“Staff are accomodating and pleasant, made us feel welcome and didn’t rush us out of the place. Lovely cafe in a ewnovated terrace house, it has a great feel to it and lovely touches – history about Esther Abrahams (after whom it is named), a little place name on your reserved table – which was a ver unexpected and lovely little touch, a huge variety of teas. This is a delightful place to go and I would recommend it to everyone.”

“This cafe is very cute and old worldly. Clearly the locals love it, the staff are friendly and attentive. There were many Tea selections to choose from and the food was yummy. I have already decided to go back.”
