The fresh, crisp white venue is inviting, as is the enticing selection of sweets on display at the entrance. The French bakery also has a beautiful outdoor terrace. The high tea selection comes on a classic three-tiered stand. Service is professional and efficient with waiters happy to point out their menu favourites and are apt at making recommendations. Sipping the Choix Blend (green tea with mango, guava and rose petals) iced, on the terrace overlooking the creek, made our afternoon. It’s sophisticated, classic and chic.
