I can’t believe this concept hasn’t taken off all over Australia, or at least in Melbourne – the city of coffee. But as far as I know, the Market Lane Bar in The Intercontinental is the only place in Melbourne that offers offer High Coffee as well as the usual High Tea. Our experience started with an Expresso Martini, and was followed by a Cafe Freddo. Food-wise, we had a 3-tiered stand to share with 3 types of sandwiches, pies, quiches and savoury muffins, fruit and plain scones with jam & cream, and 4 mini desserts each. Unlimited coffee (and tea) was also included. Such a great idea. Luckily The Intercontinental in Sydney also offers High Coffee in their Cortile Lounge.
