Adam Zwar’s top five places to take tea

Melburnians might live and breathe coffee, but when award-winning actor and screen-writer Adam Zwar looks for a cafe, he wants a perfect cup of tea. The star of ABC TV’s Lowdown and SBS’s Wilfred likes nothing more than a nice cup’a’cha, but he also looks for “a gentle atmosphere and good service”. Here are his top five places for taking tea:

1. Zappa

I often have meetings at with actors at Zappa and the Italian lady in the kitchen always says “Why you no bring in Craig McLachlan?”.
206 Bank St, South Melbourne, 9699 9333

2: Las Chicas

Las Chicas is where I sit outside in the courtyard on a sunny day with the film producers, lawyers and cops.
203 Carlisle St, Balaclava, 9531 3699

3: Mart

Mart is tram spelt backwards. An old tram master’s building that’s been turned into a charming cafe. Very quaint.
107 Cantebury Rd, Middle Park, 9690 8831

4: Lawson Grove Shop

Quiet. Great food. The shop is off Caroline St. Go there if you want some peace.
1 Lawson Grove, South Yarra, 9866 3640

5: Kanteen

Great spot by the river. Big atmosphere. The energy is contagious.
150 Alexandra Ave, South Yarra, 9827 0488
