The name, Crema and Cream, was chosen to symbolise the caramel collar of a perfectly extracted espresso (crema) and the delicious home-made treats that are enjoyed alongside the coffee (cream). This harmony is undeniable in the High Teas that are on offer at Crema and Cream. They are an experience and the ideal way to celebrate the most special occasions and milestones in our lives including baby showers, bridal showers, special birthdays, children's birthdays, Mother’s Day, Valentine's Day and retirement.
All our exquisite gourmet offerings are crafted entirely by hand. We invite you to experience our supremely elegant High Tea in our private, air-conditioned Function Room. We offer two styles of High Tea at Crema and Cream - English and Italian. Staying true to her heritage, Gracelyn offers an Italian version of the traditional English High Tea inspired by the flavours of the Mediterranean.
Regardless of which version is chosen, each guest will be served 4 delectable savoury and 4 delicious sweet treats – all presented on the traditional tiered cake stands. Our ever-changing High Tea menu features seasonal ingredients, sourced locally as much as possible and all baked to order by Gracelyn in the Crema kitchen. As our food is prepared in-house we are able to cater for individual dietary requirements such as gluten or dairy free and vegetarian/vegan.
High Tea price of $36 per person includes a barista prepared coffee or pot of artisan loose leaf tea. There will be an additional charge for gluten and vegan treats. You are welcome to bring your favourite bubbles with you on the day.
Children’s High Tea
Every parent wants to host a party for their child’s birthday but often the demands of work and home life make this difficult and too stressful. We offer a complete package of treats, drinks and take-home bags in popular themes, so you are able to enjoy the celebration with your child and their friends. Parents may also be invited to stay for the party, seated in the quiet area of the café, enjoying a delicious Crema afternoon tea.
Please phone Gracelyn to discuss your ideas for your child’s next birthday celebration.

Last year we introduced our Monthly Dinners. This was an opportunity to showcase the special talents of our chef and allowed groups of our customers to come together to share an evening of delicious food, great company in a relaxed atmosphere. Some of these dinners included a Four Course Degustation, Christmas in July and an American style BBQ. These themed dinners developed such a reputation that they booked out soon after they were announced. This was certainly the case with the Italian Night in March where the reservations were closed at 85 people about a week after being launched.
As a result of the positive reaction to our Monthly Dinners we introduced weekly Friday Night dinners at the beginning of this year. These dinners are an opportunity to enjoy a relaxed meal of restaurant quality within a suburban environment. As we are BYO you are able to enjoy your favourite bottle of wine and a delicious meal at an affordable price. The menu in true cucina povera style is small and ever-changing, dependant on the quality of the ingredients available.
We also celebrate special occasions such as Mother's Day, Father's Day and Valentine's Day with chef designed meals and of course Grace's signature desserts.
