Mount Nelson Excursion with Afternoon Tea Experience: An all-time favorite of the rich and famous, the Mount Nelson Hotel is a notable hallmark of luxury and indulgence in Cape Town, and is set at the foot of Table Mountain in the leafy, beautiful suburb of Gardens. The world-renowned Afternoon Tea buffet is set in the elegant lounge with its deep verandah overlooking the manicured garden. Graceful notes from the Grand Piano add to the gracious ambiance. Enjoy the sumptuous selection of chocolate éclairs and petit-fours, mini-cakes and classic carrot, chocolate and cheese cakes, savory sandwiches and empanadas, scones and succulent fresh fruits, and more. The milk tart adds a special South African flavor to the mix.
There are over thirty loose leaf and flowering teas to try out, from Rooibos and Lapsang Souchong, to Earl Grey and Darjeeling. And the signature Mount Nelson Tea – expertly blended from six teas as well as rose petals from their garden – adds an extra sparkle of enjoyment to the tea experience. So put your fancy hat on (in a manner of speaking!) and dine in relaxed, classical style as was so popular back in its heyday.
Afternoon tea is a true institution at the Belmond, which has long been regarded as one of the city’s top 5-star hotels. The Mount Nelson offers the perfect setting for the High Tea experience, with its lush, idyllic gardens and beautiful interiors and exteriors, and is also only a short distance from the city center – it’s a little piece of elegant yet contemporary paradise a stone’s throw away from it all!
