Who can resist this window! Working directly next door to the Hopetoun Tea Rooms I see their selection (and have tried MANY) daily.  Come in early to avoid the que.

Shop in the Block Arcade, Melbourne--favourite place for afternoon tea. Make a reservation or you'll be waiting in a long cue.

Block Arcade, Collins Street – Mark Strizic , 1967 Still looks much the same. Arcades (& lanes) are wonderful in Melbourne city and help make the city different to the other capitals in Australia. The Hopetoun tea rooms are still in operation.

A great blog post on the Arcade with some great photos! Melbourne Curious: The Block Arcade: Introduction

The Block Arcade is in the CBD Running between Collins Street and Elizabeth Street. You can also enter from Little Collins Street and walk through the cafes in Block Place
