The original Tippett’s Tea Rooms was founded in the 1920’s by Peter Norman Tippett soon after he returned from service in France during World War 1.

Turning his experience in a field bakery feeding the Anzac troops to good advantage, Norman Tippett soon made Tippett’s Tea Rooms and bakery a household name throughout the Goldfields.

In about 1930 he expanded the business to take over the Albany Bell’s Tea Rooms in Hannan Street, Kalgoorlie, renaming it Tippett’s. There was many wedding receptions and local functions that were celebrated in the beautifully furnished top floor reception room.

During the Great Depression, it was well known that no-one in need was ever turned away hungry from Norman Tippett’s door.

Mr Tippett was elected to the Kalgoorlie Municipal Council in 1933 and was a prominent and well-respected member of the Kalgoorlie and Boulder communities.

Although he passed away in 1938 at the age of 50, the Tippett’s businesses in Boulder and Kalgoorlie lived on for several more decades. Tippett’s Tea Rooms in Boulder finally closed its doors in the early 1970s.
