About Sofi's Lounge
Open daily, Sofi’s Lounge is an expansive gallery featuring an array of exhibited artworks, fresh flowers, natural light and a lofty ceiling. Located on level one of Sofitel Melbourne. On Collins, it is a hub for business meetings and leisurely teas that can be enjoyed throughout the day
On weekdays: Merry High Tea
We’re adding a kick to the festive season by serving up a series of ‘merry treats’ at our high tea during December. All of your favourite nostalgic Christmas flavours will be paired with a modern French twist (as always), from layered gingerbread Jaconde and seasonal spiced mousse to a Christmas snowball placed on top of a golden reindeer.
Your mid-week Merry High Tea experience will be presented on our dramatic black and white stands which was inspired by Escher’s work on impossible objects and explorations of infinity and created by the famed international pastry chef and Sofitel’s own David Hann.
Monday – Friday till 31 December 2019
On the weekend: Morning Tea & High Tea.
Morning Tea is served from 10:30am on individual tiered stands featuring delicate finger sandwiches and sweet temptations accompanied by a glass of sparkling wine and tea or espresso coffee. Kindly note last seating is at 11:30am.
Enjoyable outing with an ambient environment.
Loved the selection of sweets, savouries and finger sandwiches. All delicious! Very attentive service. My friend and I had a lovely afternoon. Thank you Sofi’s Lounge.
There wos two people wearing hats which l through wos not approved at the high tea
Cornelia and the other waitress were both super lovely and accommodating. We felt looked after and the monochromatic food was so cute and delicious.
What a wonderful afternoon and fantastic high tea. Our day started with Lisa who was very welcoming. We had plenty of food options and the quality was at a very high level. the tea selection offered a unique touch and thank you lisa for the recommendation. after filling up of food and drink the staff surprised us with an anniversary plate of goodies. we had a great time and look forward to doing it all again but with our two kids.
Service was very attentive, free flowing bubbles was great. Food was delicious and beautifully presented. We had a very nice afternoon.
My friends and I all had a lovely afternoon - the generous array of delicious food, the background piano music and friendly staff. We'd be very happy to come again one day.
Wow what amazing staff from the person who made the reservation to the people serving / really fantastic / thank you so much for a really memorable afternoon -
Mary! by far one of the most beautiful soles, so easy to talk to and very helpful! The monochromatic deliciousness is well worth this trip and the ambience of the Sofitel, words can not describe. Everything makes you feel welcome.
Very, very disappointed to discover my booking was not for the high tea buffet on Sunday 29 February. The website for Sofi's High Tea does not explain that the buffet is only from a certain time on weekends. Our booking was made purely because it was a buffet style. My group turned up to be advised we were only having the standard high tea. The website is very misleading. Interesting that the information is shown above this survey.
The quality and assortment of the food was underwhelming, especially for the price paid. However, the atmosphere was nice and the service wasn't bad either.
I love coming so lovely enjoyed being here I will be back
Wonderful experience loved the High Tea everyone was Liv.ey and very attentive and the food was Marvellous
Great service and atmosphere.
We had the best day. Food and drink was amazing and you even helped us celebrate the birthday girl with a little something special. Thanks so much for having us!!
We went there for afternoon tea before we went to see a show. We’ve done this a few times in the past, always enjoyable and great food
Great place - we loved our experience and the service was fantastic
As always, a perfect high tea. Very accommodating to my allergies. Seperate dessert plate for me, and full options on all savoury items which were absolutely mouthwatering. A highlight of our weekend in Melbourne yet again. Will be visiting again next time we are over.
Lovely piano music really enhanced the atmosphere
We enjoyed our high tea, made our day memorable.
Took a while to actually get our pots of tea, but otherwise everything was great.
Just LOVE taking friends to Sofi’s. Everything about it is FABULOUS and our friends always comment on how much they LOVE it there. Piano Music on the Weekend is Wonderful, especially great when we get to hear the Inimitable Rod Wilson!! Well Done Sofi’s. We LOVE you. P.S. just a Comment, not a Criticism....... not so keen on Black Scores, perhaps plain and fruit ones could be offered as an Alternative 😊. Susan .
Good: food selection, live piano, service was attentive. Bad: large blowflies, piano could be loud, hot food was very dry. The High Tea was very nice, though missing some traditional items. I thought it was quite amusing that the piano player slipped in some Christmas Carols, tho no one seemed to notice. Would be nice to have more tables you can sit at, rather than mostly couches. I would go back.
The egg sandwiches were delicious and so were the Chicken and Chardonnay Mini pies. I was hoping for the chicken croissants but obviously it was not the right day for them. The service was amazing and everyone was very friendly. Remy our waitress was friendly and looked after us. We all loved the High Tea and will be back in the future.
We had a lovely celebration for my Daughter In Law yesterday. Girls Day Out. We were made to feel special and Michael looked after us with lots of attention. Sarah kept us hydrated and served us well and always with a smile. The food and variety was excellent. Thank you to everyone involved.
