PROFILE BY BEST RESTAURANTS
It's always tea time at the Cortile, an enchanting sun-light courtyard featuring a soaring glass ceiling and tiered sandstone arcades. This secret haven of sweet delights is hidden in the InterContinental Hotel Sydney, a magical setting perfect for the sweet-tooth's ultimate indulgence. While away the hours in the charming surrounds, which is particularly magnificent when the sun shines through the glass skylight and lights up the arena. The InterContinental Hotel encompasses the 1851 Treasury Building, a National Trust landmark made of magnificent sandstone just a short distance from the Sydney Opera House and Circular Quay.
The Cortile serves up dainty delicacies each weekday afternoon, but the weekend High Teas are not to be missed. Enjoy sparkling wine, coffee and juice, plus a full buffet of cakes, pastries, cheese and savouries. Have the chef whip up some fresh crepes and pancakes to order at the live cooking station. The Cortile also offers a snack menu and all-day light meals such as sandwiches and savouries, or simply pop in for a cocktail or coffee. Afternoon tea at the Cortile is the perfect icing on the cake after a day of visiting the Art Gallery of New South Wales and Royal Botanic Gardens, located just a brief stroll from the hotel.
