No visit to Cape Town is complete without experiencing Mount Nelson Hotel’s legendary Afternoon Tea. Famous foodies and travel writers the world over describe it as being one of the best afternoon tea experiences in the world.
The daily buffet is laid out on the Windsor Table in the hotel’s Lounge area and includes savoury favourites the likes of smoked salmon, cream cheese and cucumber sandwiches, smoked salmon grissini, local Malay specialities, and sweet temptations from chocolate confectionery, to petit fours, homemade coconut ice, marshmallows and fudge, cupcakes, scones, and assorted cakes.
Graceful notes from the Grande Piano add to the ambiance, and a selection of over thirty of the finest loose leaf teas, from Rooibos and Lapsang Souchong, to Earl Grey and Darjeeling, completes the indulgence.
