Review - No. 1 William

While Sydney weather never seems to turn it on during my visits to No. 1 William at the Australian Museum, the view is none-the-less spectacular.

Since my last visit, the Create Consultants team have added on High Tea ($35/head), offering up two sessions a day, at 10am and 2pm.


You can expect a traditional, three-tiered affair with scones, sandwiches and sweets.

While small in stature, the three scones presented with whipped cream and jam, were golden brown on the outside, and fluffy enough within.

With a cup of English Breakfast tea, they summon up homely pleasure; though there's also Little Marionette coffee if you'd prefer.

Sandwiches, with the crusts cut off, cover all the classics: smoked salmon, cucumber and chive cream cheese; egg salad; and poached chicken, lettuce and mayonnaise.

Most of the platter’s choices, from sandwich choices to mini-macarons, seem to play it safe; though I suspect that’s by design. With children making up so many of the museum’s guests, they’re bound to want to share in high tea.

With my email booking getting lost, helpful staff were still able to rustle up my arranged high tea on the spot. This may account for the lemon tart and the rich chocolate tart not being set. While certainly messier, they still represented good excuses to sit with a glass of Chandon Non Vintage Brut bubbling away in one hand, and our eyes fixed on that amazing view.
