Be it a fancy three-tier stand of desserts, or an all-you-can-eat afternoon tea buffet, there are endless options when it comes to an afternoon tea in Singapore.
Gather your girlfriends, get dressed, click your heels, and be on your way.
From the artistic tea lounge Arteastiq to a chichi session at The Landing Point at Fullerton Bay Hotel, read our Guide to Singapore’s Best Afternoon Tea to find out where you can enjoy a hearty afternoon tea with bang for your buck.
Possibly the most commonly photographed afternoon tea set, Anti:Dote at Fairmont Singapore has won over members of the high society with its irresistible artisanal gourmet.
Unlike the typical buffet spreads and floral tiered cake stands, dainty treats are actually presented above and inside a jewelry drawer chest.
Start your afternoon tea with black truffle scrambled eggs or steamed Hong Kong dim sum, before digging into the succulent lobster rolls, mini cheesecakes and addictive butter cookies etc.

An afternoon tea at Arteastiq is a great way to combat fatigue after a long day. Conveniently located in the heart of Orchard Road, Arteastiq’s elegant interiors will definitely win over any lady’s heart.
An afternoon tea set for two includes two specialty teas and a two-tier stand of light sweets and savouries. We love their refreshing iced fruit teas, particularly Pomelo Tea and Lychee Tea that would be served in pretty clear glass teapots. Sip away in style or get your hands dirty at their in-house painting room. At an additional cost (from S$28 onwards), you can unleash the budding artist in you and take home your painted canvas.
