After launching their cafe by day and French-inspired fine dining restaurant by night this summer, Richmond’s Origo Club has been busy expanding their options, including the recent addition of an elegant afternoon tea service.
As one might expect from an afternoon tea, Origo Club puts out a gorgeous spread of house-made sweets and savouries, paired with your choice of tea, and the option to add-on a glass of high-end champagne for an additional charge.
The food is presented on a beautiful circular tier which is loaded with things like scones with jam and cream, Quiche Lorraine, a double-stacked smoked salmon sandwich, roasted duck with cherries, choux buns stuffed with earthy mushrooms, and a gorgeous array of sweets to cap things off.
As you work your way to the top of the triple-decker tier the macaron, lemon tart, financier, and other goodies will surely be your goal (but fear not, if you can’t eat them all you can easily take them home to nibble on later).
Your tea is served in beautiful individual blue and white china pots, and the servers will keep your hot water topped off the whole meal. If you prefer something cool with your afternoon tea, they’ve got a lovely passion fruit green tea on ice available.
Origo Club is serving up their new afternoon tea, priced at a reasonable $45 per person, Fridays and Saturdays from 1:30 to 4 pm.
Origo Club is located at 110-6888 River Road in Richmond.
