The Jane Austen Tearoom is located on the corner of 40 Nicholson Street, and Raleigh Street Essendon.
This beautiful old house was built in the 1800's and has been transformed into an elegant cafe with polished floorboards, chandeliers, grand mirrors and lovely damask covered chairs.
To add to the charming décor there are window boxes of flowers.
Prints of Miss Austen’s novels Pride and Prejudice, Sense and Sensibility, Emma, Mansfield Park, Persuasion and Northanger Abbey have been elegantly framed and displayed on the walls.
From the moment you step into the cafe you can smell the aroma of freshly ground barista coffee.
Leading down the hallway are quaint little private rooms that hosts many high teas, breakfasts, lunches and of course our famous freshly homemade scones.
In the restaurant you will find our private Mr Darcy’s Room and Miss Elizabeth Bennett’s Room.
And Miss Austen doesn’t stop there - throughout the menu Miss Austen’s characters come to life from Mr Colin’s pompous Simple Breakfast to Miss Fanny Dashwood’s seafood catch.
