Dello Mano Launches New High Tea

We at Dello Mano would like to invite you to our new series of in-store High Teas, the most tasteful outing we believe Brisbane has to offer 🙂 In the case that this has really excited you and you wish to read no more 🙂



or continue to  read on and  learn more about our gourmet High Teas.


Since 2006, Dello Mano has established itself as Australia’s foremost purveyor of luxury brownies and more recently premium cakes. Our signature High Tea, which has been delighting guests of all ages for over three years, is the premier way to enjoy our sumptuous sweets as well as our warm, genuine hospitality. This year, in honor of our beautiful location at the heritage-listed Tattersalls Arcade, we’re launching two new High Teas: The Arcadian and The Chocolate Queen. Both teas are available at Tattersalls Arcade and at our equally-lovely New Farm Village location, where we are nestled in an eclectic, Italianesque neighborhood lined with trees and flowers.

The Dello Mano High Tea Experience

High tea has long been a favorite outing among the fine ladies of Brisbane, from the Victorian grand dames who first strolled the aisles of the Arcade to the chicly-suited businesswomen of the present. We designed our high teas with that heritage in mind and an emphasis on relaxation and decadence, two qualities integral to the Dello Mano experience. Each tea set showcases our luxurious brownies as well as our “mini-mini” cakes, exclusively in-store treats intended for individual enjoyment. The mini-minis, named after our beloved Clubman Mini Cooper delivery car, feature all the flavors of our best-selling premium cakes. Selections change daily and may feature anything from Belgian Chocolate Buttermilk to Raspberry & Passionfruit Torte. We round out the tea sets with handmade scones, micropots of our white chocolate-raspberry jam, and an assortment of dainty ribbon sandwiches. And, of course, each set comes with a pot of freshly-brewed tea (or Di Bella coffee, if you prefer).

Mini Mini Red Velvet Cake – Luxury treat in the Dello Mano High Tea

At Dello Mano, we consider artful presentation tantamount to taste, so you can expect our service to be as decadent as our desserts. The sweets, scones, and sandwiches come arranged on a grand, golden tea stand with a pineapple motif, a symbol for hospitality and a reference to the role pineapples play in Brisbane’s tropical heritage. Even our classic brownie comes wrapped in real gold foil. You’ll feel like royalty as you peel away the precious foil to reveal the dark, rich chocolate within.

The Arcadian

The Arcadian is named after our new home, Tattersalls Arcade, a high-end shopping destination housed in an Art Deco clubhouse. We also love the dictionary definition of “arcadian”: idyllically innocent, simple, or untroubled. Like our Tattersalls and New Farm locations — unhurried oases from the modern world — The Arcadian Tea is the perfect idyllic respite from your worldly troubles. We invite you to unwind among Tatterhalls’ Classical friezes and gleaming brass fixtures or New Farms’ fig trees and French rattan. The Arcadian features three mini-mini cakes — Golden Gaytime Cake, Red Velvet Cake, and Raspberry &Passionfruit Torte — as well as a brownie mousse with meringue, scones, and three savory sandwiches, all chosen to pair perfectly with your favorite tea.

The Chocolate Queen

The Chocolate Queen’s namesake is Queen Street, the beating heart of Brisbane and the street on which Tattersalls Arcade is located. Since Brisbane’s Victorian period, Queen Street has been known for sophisticated, elegant shopping experiences, a legacy that continues with the vibrant Queen Street Mall. The Chocolate Queen evokes Queen Street’s grand Victorian past while remaining fashionably grounded in the present. Fans of our intensely chocolatey brownies will love this tea set — the selections never stray far from our Brownie Revolution roots. Served on a gleaming, golden service fit for a real queen, the tea features a wide range of chocolate treats, including Blackforest and Chocolate Milkshake mini-mini cakes, truffle bon-bons, and our Belgian Chocolate brownie. We suggest pairing this spread with a pot of rich, creamy hot chocolate instead of the customary tea. The Chocolate Queen Tea is particularly perfect for Mothers’ Day, because we all know that Mum is the real queen of our hearts.
