The smell of buttery scones at The Tea Cosy will make you feel immediately at home or in the bosom of your grandmother. Situated in a charming terrace house in the Rocks, the Tea Cosy is a nook where you can literally do some knitting. There are cabinets of knick knacks in the main rooms, inviting overstuffed armchairs and collections of silver spoons hanging off brick walls. The Devonshire tea is where it’s really at – enjoy two wholesome scones with thick cream and your choice of jam, matched with a pot of tea sporting a colourful knitted sweater. Take a stroll under the Harbour Bridge, browse the Rocks Markets if you’re there on the weekend and enjoy the views of Sydney after eating your fill.
