For $50, adults will be served the Shingle Inn’s famous Afternoon Tea, handcrafted by the Shingle Inn bakers and featuring assorted ribbon sandwiches with an array of delicious fillings, petite decadent desserts, and hand-made scones with clotted cream and rich preserve, served with a choice of 15 international loose leaf teas or coffee and a glass of Australian sparkling wine.

For $15, children will be served the Teddy Bear High Tea, which includes a ham and cheese ribbon sandwich, mini quiche lorraine, mini sausage roll, teddy bear fairy bread, a famous Shingle Inn patty cake, teddy bear biscuit, chocolate marshmallow and their choice of kid’s milkshake, babychino or juice.

Proceeds will be donated to the Cancer Council to raise vital funds for cancer research, prevention and support services.
