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.
Incredible service with the chef preparing a full tray in addition to buffet to meet my dietary requirements. Great food, service and value for money. Would highly recommend and thanks to the team for a great afternoon.
Very good excellent variety of food.
I thought the venue in the foyer was a little public
Mary Joy looked after us superbly and made sure we had a great experience.
Just Great !!!
What a fantastic experience! The service was exceptional and the lady even brought out some extra little cakes with a candle as we had said in passing that we were celebrating my Mum’s birthday. The food was delicious and the atmosphere was very relaxing! Would love an excuse to go again, had a lovely time!
A beautiful afternoon with my husband to celebrate my 60th birthday. Thank you for making it a very special time for us. Kind regards Jillian
Thank you for asking me to do this. It was the second time that I have done this and unfortunately I wasn't happy with the service on this occasion. Our young male waiter spilt champagne and when asked to wipe the table again he didn't like this. After this the service went down and he didn't come near us again to check that everything was alright or even to ask if we would like tea or coffee. Unfortunately I was very disappointed as I had booked this for my sisters birthday. When paying I did mention this to the lady that took my payment & in a round about way apologised but did nothing about making us feel better about the experience . We stay with you at least once a year and over the pass 2 months I have been had lunch at Number 35 for my 60th birthday and also afternoon tea twice. I am sorry to tell you what has happened and I hope that you can improve the service. Kind regards Jillian
Overpriced for the quantity of food provided. Could have more sandwiches and less cakes. A few savoury items would have been good. Charged full price for a 7 year old and extra for an iced chocolate
The gorgeous entrance into the foyer has a note of grandeur. The delicately prepared cakes and pastries are very tasty and pretty to the eye. Service of tea and champagne with a Smile was much welcomed. Not to mention during weekend bookings, a quaint piano man entertains guests which is a lovely accompaniment to the atmosphere. We will be back.
5 stars goes for the pregnant lady who try her best to make it happened. However weak team of FOH. Food was horrible and insufficient for that price. Coffee had a funny taste and served in a dirty cup.
Excellent as always
Excellent service and very friendly staff
Absolutely incredible food. The customer service team were excellent and were nicely treated.
Great service, sweet staff. Lapsang souchong tea is the bomb.
The food was wonderfully presented and tasted great apart from the first batch of gluten free scones for the one coeliac amongst us, which were rock hard. When this was mentioned to the staff, they organised for a fresh batch to be made, which were much better.
We had had a great time thank you.
15 years at the Sofitel for Christmas,cafe la ,cafe 35 Sofi’s Lounge. My family and I absolutely love spending Christmas there. Always wonderful, and yes....we highly recommend it to our friends.Thank you again, (see you next year)x🎄
What a lovely experience! Service and food were excellent, also the ambience. We have had Xmas lunch at a few places but will be returning to Sonia’s hopefully next year. We will definetely recommend it to other friends. Thank you
We really didn’t have a great experience and were very disappointed with the service and food for the price being charged. The service wasn’t great we were seated and left to work out what was going on. We won’t be returning.
What a wonderful afternoon with a very special friend the staff were so lovely & very helpful & attentive without being intrusive. The food very good though the scones were quite dry & tough everything else perfect.
Unfortunately the service was not at expected standard. We waited some time for our food and had to ask for drinks. We were not asked if we wanted further drinks until we had finished eating. The food was lovely.
Lovely afternoon with friendly staff.
My friend and I come to Sophies Lounge for High Tea several times a year. This was our first experience of your Merry Treats and what a treat it was, absolutely yummy. Lovely venue, great welcoming staff and great service, I would rate it all 6 star! Thank you so much, we really enjoyed it all. See you next year. Patricia
