High Tea at Hotel DeBrett

Treat yourself

Nestled in the heart of Auckland's central city, Hotel Debrett is a gem of a location for dining, drinks and of course beautiful, boutique accommodation. 

Head to Debretts Kitchen on a Saturday or Sunday between 3-5pm and for just $55 per person indulge in a delicious High Tea of sweet treats and delicate savouries. There's a tempting tea menu to choose from and every High Tea includes a glass of Cloudy Bay Pelorus NV - a sparkling glass of bubbly that we found deliciously crisp and sweet.
