“My favourite high tea in Singapore”
What did you do on Easter Sunday this year?
I actually planned to sleep in but woke up with a hunger to eat lots of chocolate and be surrounded by Easter rabbits. There are many places in Singapore serving Sunday Brunch but I’m not a big eater, Sunday brunch is totally going to be a waste on me. So, I picked up the phone and called one of my favourite high tea place – The Tea Lounge at Regent Hotel.
I love their high tea because there is a selection of warm food and desserts, including sashimi and sushi. On top of that, you get 2 drinks! Usual high tea set only allows you to choose one pot of tea, but here, you can choose any 2 drinks. I usually will choose a pot of tea from their decent selection of premium tea (thank god, they are not serving TWG) and a cup of ice coffee. The best of both world.
The Tea Lounge has a quiet elegant setting with English tapestry chairs which is wide and comfortable, plush carpet and bright big windows. There is also a pianist playing live music. The ambience is perfect for a relaxing afternoon for a catch up session with girlfriends or your loved ones.
The damage is S$48++ per person. ( price accurate at date of post)
They have 2 seating: 12pm – 2.30pm and 3pm – 5.30pm. If you take the earlier slot, you need to return the table exactly at 2.30pm else they will start to chase you away. I will advise you to take the later slot for a more relaxed session.
Their service is very attentive, where they will constantly clear your plate away and refill your ice water. As the Tea Lounge is quite small, I will strongly recommend you to make a reservation before you go.

Tip: Always go for High Tea instead of Sunday brunch if you don’t want to grow fat!
They have a selection of various salads and different version of sandwiches (including my favourite typical cucumber sandwich) plus burgers.
Easter rabbit cookie is given to every kid….and uhm….including me…..
This is one of the rare high tea places that serve cavior. Although I will not say it is top quality but it’s not the worst either.
I love the cheese section and how it’s being displayed. They are quite good range of cheese and even different type of honey for your selection. I’m certainly quite impressed!
My first round of food selection. If you are wondering what is the brown piece of meat? You are right! It’s bak kwa. Interesting to see it being served during high tea.
I love coffee and this is one of the BEST high tea coffee in Singapore I ever tasted in my opinion. Please do order one cup if you are a coffee lover. One cup is simply not enough.
And suddenly, a big PINK RABBIT pop out to greet everyone. I was totally shocked when I turn my head to see an exact lifesize PINK, yes, PINK rabbit walking around waving. Doesn’t this photo resemblance a certain Singapore politician figure? Hmmmm…..
Ahhh…there is my chocolate rabbit which I came to this Sunday high tea for. Isn’t the chocolate display pretty?
There are a whole row of wide selection of jams for your scones. I am so spolied for selection. They don’t really serve the nicest scones which is quite a pity.
These freshly made waffles are so so yummy.
I saw this funny sign when exiting the car park. I made me feel like once I step behind this door, it’s going to no turning back and end of the world. So, I’m going to end my post with this “FINAL EXIT”.
I also apologize for the bad image quality of this post. There seems to be something wrong with my camera lens, therefore, this also means “The End” of my camera lens…I need to replace it with new ones.
That’s the end, folks! Till the next food review.
