I was having a bit of a rough time a few weeks back, so Ria decided that we needed a fancy lady date to cheer me up and booked us into high tea at Hippopotamus at the Museum Hotel.
Hippopotamus is the restaurant within the Museum Art Hotel - its fancy and there is loads of fun art. I kind of want to stay here for one night sometime when I'm feeling especially fancy!
So what was the high tea like? It was pretty delicious, as there were only two of us they served it on smaller plates rather than a fancy tiered serving platter. Which was great as it meant we could actually see each other (I do love the fancy tiered platters, but they can make conversation hard!).
for those of us having tea with their high tea (there were also alcohol high teas) there was a constant stream of tea servers ready to full up your cup at any moment you needed more.
It was a wet and miserable day when we had our high tea - but the view was still pretty great, well apart from the car park.
Fancy Ladies on a fancy ladies day out! I bought this frock on my last trip to Auckland - but I haven't worn it too much yet.
Here's to fun lady dates and lots of good times and good food in the future! Also when we thought we had finished eating, they bought out bonus macarons.
Thanks for looking after me when I'm bummed out Ria - I had a super rad time.
