While we enjoy having afternoon tea, the truth is that nobody can afford to splurge on expensive high teas at posh hotels all the time.
I hope this list of Affordable Afternoon Tea Places under S$15 will be useful when you are looking for a nice place to go with your friends for a cup of tea and dessert; or a quiet corner to read a good book while having a cup of coffee.
When my good friend was back in town during Christmas, we wanted to catch up over tea, so I suggested a few afternoon high tea places. Since it was the festive period, I tried to call to reserve a table, only to find out that all the hotel tea lounges were fully-booked that day.
After looking through my list of new places to go, we eventually settled for a nice little cafe at Holland Village. I’ve heard a lot about Foster English Rose Cafe, but somehow, I just never got the chance to drop by. I’m happy to say that I’m glad that I finally did.
I’m going straight to the point, because I don’t want to delay you from going down to Foster for tea. It is a lovely cafe to hang out with your friends, so remember to bookmark this post for your next outing.
“Which is your favourite cafe in Singapore?”
There are some places like Prive Bakery Cafe and PS Cafe that I love for their ambience; other places like Oriole cafe and Epicurious for the affordability; and Artichoke, Spruce and Barracks for the food. But when it comes to a cafe that I go all the time, Marmalade Toast is definitely the place.
Marmalade Toast Cafe is a hidden gem in Orchard Road. It has been around for very long, but even up till now, I’m surprised that not many people know about them. Located at a corner of Ngee Ann City, the cafe is a simplified version of Marmalade Pantry restaurant. They have a pretty straightforward menu of salads, wraps, sandwiches and desserts – everything priced reasonably under $10.
While I love going to fancy restaurants, it is impossible to spend so much on food all the time. That’s why I am always on the lookout for cafes that serve decent food at affordable prices.
Tea Cosy at Plaza Singapura is one of them. It serves a pretty decent afternoon high tea at $29.95 for two, from 2.30pm to 6pm daily.
Singapore has many cool and happening places where you can chill out with your friends and people watch at the same time.
Here’s a list of the must See and Be Seen Restaurants in Singapore.
Note: Jean-Philippe Darcis is now closed.
I have been on a mission to try all the afternoon high tea places in Singapore. One would imagine that there are plenty of nice dessert places to go for a leisure afternoon tea. But the problem is, I have been to most of them, and sometimes, I end up going to the usual ones because there are only that few high tea places in town.
After having dim sum at Paradise Pavilion, my partner-in-crime and I were greedy for more food, and we I suddenly thought of the macarons at Jean-Philippe Darcis, Marina Bay Sands. Life is good when you have desserts after dim sum.
Happy Easter Day!

Perched at the top of Phoenix Park in Tanglin, Spruce is a nice cafe which is just a few minutes drive from Orchard. I had been dying to go Spruce after hearing so much about their weekend brunch.
Today, I am going to share with you something else, though. Not the weekend brunch, but the Weekend High Tea Set that Spruce has launched. And it is only $14++/pax $21++/pax.
