High tea refers to a light meal usually eaten in the late afternoon or early evening. This meal traditionally consists of a cooked hot dish, tea, butter, and bread. It is actually an old British tradition, but it has been adopted worldwide especially by millennials.
Over the years, a number of popular high tea restaurants have popped up around Singapore. It may be difficult for you to choose one due to the abundance of options. No worries; we’re here to help! Here are our recommendations for the best high tea spots in Singapore:
1. The Rose Veranda
With over 3 decades of impeccable service, this former buffet restaurant is now considered to be one of the best high tea spots in Singapore. They now offer a 3 course high tea set menu which consists of several amazing appetisers, main dish, beverage, and dessert options.
We highly recommend you try the Strawberry Lobster Slaw Sandwich and their Foie Gras Tarts!

From a former buffet to a current one, 10 Scotts’ A La Minute High Tea Buffet pampers you with a multitude of high quality food selections.
