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: Monochromatic High Tea
Experience the paradoxical flavours hidden within each dessert, designed by our famed international Pastry Chef, David Hann and presented on our dramatic black and white afternoon tea stands. Times: 12pm concluding at 2pm or 3pm concluding at 5pm until 31 October 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.
Every weekend until the 13th of October, ‘unearth’ your love of culture and art, with an Asian infused high tea and restore the chocolate-crafted guardians back to life with Dulux® colour-matched fountains at Sofitel’s exclusive Terracotta Warriors & High Tea. Pastry Chef, David Hann has crafted an Asian high tea featuring chocolate & pineapple wontons, red bean bombes and matcha macarons. All the desserts will be accompanied by a hot buffet selection of Chinese favourites, including steamed pork buns, crispy prawn fried wontons, char siu sandwiches.
The only thing that may be concerning is the seating arrangements for larger parties. The sofas are comfortable but awkward when reaching for food at the low tables that accompany the sofas. The smaller 2 people seating chairs are much more practical and comfortable in that sense.
everything was lovely my family and I enjoyed it very much we will do it again soon hopefully Suggestion : some noodles would be lovely for the kids
We booked this for our first Anniversary. The food was very nice, however the service was incredibly inattentive, tables weren't getting cleared after the high tea for new customers, it was an effort to get the attention of staff, and we saw this from a number of frustrated tables, as a whole not a very good experience. There were plenty of staff on for the number of guests so I would put it down to poor management and training. I have seen it much better in lower end cafe's.
The food was absolutely delicious and a good variety provided. Staff were very attentive and friendly and the pianist was perfect in the background. Absolutely planning on coming back and have already recommended your afternoon tea to friends. Thank you for a fabulous Sunday afternoon.
Very elegant hotel
The high tea was amazing! The food was lovely and you could tell the food was hand-crafted. The food was even replenished; which was extremely thoughtful of the staff! The nice young man (didn’t get his name, however he was tall and spoke some French) provided a wonderful service. The occasion we were celebrating (graduation) was taken into consideration, and the young man made a plate of cakes with ‘congratulations’ written on the plate. The dining room was beautiful and the price was very reasonable. We really enjoyed it and we will be back! Thanks so much! :)
Fantastic experience, will come back
We thoroughly enjoyed our Terracotta Warriors high tea. The atmosphere in Sofi’s Lounge is always calm and relaxing and we all adored listening to the pianist. The staff were fabulous and so wonderful with children. The food was delicious (especially loved the sticky beef and the sandwiches) and we look forward to dining at the Sofitel again soon.
Thank you for making my family celebration so special. It was definitely memorable. Both service and food was excellent.

We had a wonderful family Terracotta Warrior high tea and really enjoyed the chocolate “painting” experience
The food and drinks for the Asian infused high tea were fantastic. The atmosphere was also great because of the person on the piano.p and the special performance by the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra String Quartet..
Absolutely loved this high tea! The finger sandwiches were so fresh. Mary came by to check on us and top up the bubbles. I will definitely return to celebrate any special occasions.
